Is that what you think of England Janet? If so why?

JRR Tolkien was born in South Africa 🙂 The Amatola Forest in the Hogsback area of South Africa was his inspiration for Lord of the Rings.
My guess is we’ll see Tolkien on display once the new series from Amazon is produced. The question is, will we go past “the Hobbit” and “TLOTR” next time? I’ve never seen “The Silmarillion” on display, for instance.
