The lines in the graph above represent the journeys by Bilbo and Frodo in the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings respectively. You can hover and click on every point on the line to show more information about the events on each day. When you have clicked on a day and opened a popup box you can navigate to the next or previous day using the arrow keys on the keyboard.

Please note that the timeline of the Hobbit only is a rough estimate based on the few known dates from the book. An estimated path has been made with the help of the Atlas of Middle-earth by Karen Wynn Fonstad.

Huge thank you to Shaun Gunner, Chairman of the Tolkien Society, for his valuable advice when creating the page.
