JRR TOLKIEN Quizzes & Trivia

An in-depth (lol) Trivia based Quiz to test your Book knowledge of Middle-earth.
All questions were prepared out of my head without any research except for three questions I found I had wrong when rechecking the answers! Unlike some other Quizes I've taken, I've stayed away from 'specalties' outside the actual texts like Hobbit Family Trees or being able to speak Elvish. All you need is your memory of the works of JRR Tolkien that you've read.
BTW: if you are confused about any answers, an explanation is included in an answer sheet at the bottom of the page Read moreafter all answers are completed.
