The Lord of the Rings Project Charts Middle Earth by the Numbers

How many characters from the Lord of the Rings series can you name? 923? That’s the number of entries in the LOTR Project–a collection of data that links family trees, timelines, and statistical curiosities about Middle Earth.

In addition to families trees and the above chart mapping out the shift in lifespans over the ages of Middle Earth, you’ll find charts mapping out age distributions, the race and gender composition of Middle Earth, populations, time and distance traveled by the Hobbits in pursuit of their quest, and so more. The site is a veritable almanac of trivia about the Lord of the Rings and related books and media.

Hit up the link below to explore the facts and figures of Middle Earth.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek.

You can follow him on if you'd like.
