Kh. Uruktharbun loc.
- Kh. Uruktharbun loc.
An early dwarf name of unknown meaning appearing in the first draft of the chapter “The Mines of Moria” in the phrase “the
dwarflords of Uruktharbun” (RS/458). According to Christopher Tolkien (RS/465, note 36), the name Azanulbizâr
(Dimrill-dale) was pencilled next to it, but in the next version of the chapter it was changed to Khazad-dûm
(Moria), so Uruktharbun
could be the precursor of either of these later names.
