(Redirected from Middle Earth)

The continent of Middle-earth was shaped at the most ancient days of Arda. It lay to the east of the other great continent of Aman (Undying Lands), and was separted from Middle-earth by the Great Sea Belegaer.

At the end of the Third Age, the continent of Aman finally departs from Arda, leaving the mortal realm of Middle-earth which would eventually evolve into Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.
