Having explored the main legends of continental Europe, illustrator John Howe goes back to origins: for Tolkien, the desire to invent languages and legends was born from reading Nordic legends.
This final episode takes us to Iceland. Yet it is in Oxford, among students of the Tolkien Society, that the answers to the long search for the Hobbits lie. What if the Hobbits were born entirely from Tolkien’s imagination? And what if they were purely and simply a projection of human beings, with their weaknesses and faults - and their capacity to change the world?
