I'm supposed to be writing a novel. So what happens? My curiosity, as usual, gets the better of me and I end up delightedly poking around in this map and blogpost. So Rivendell was in Norway... That puts an interesting slant on things.
And in other news: The Indians almost had a state. I didn't know that about Oklahoma's history.
I tripped over the above thanks to a friend's (hi, Max!) linkage to this illustrative painting of Norway, Europe, and Norway's relationship with water.
Do read the comments to the above blogposts. Very informative.
Now, could somebody please come and tear me loose from strange maps? I really must write my novel. Thanks.
