1 So it was that the paths of the children's lives were set, for Morgoth ever sought opportunities to prove his curse. Turin's life covered five stages: (i) with Morwen and Húrin in Dor-lómin, 465-473; (2) with Thingol in Doriath, 473-485; (3) with the outlaw band in the lay at Brethil. 9 The evil of the curse had not run its course, for Morwen and Nienor had meanwhile gone west toward Nargothrond.

If the latter were the case, the correct bedrock (such as that found at Nargothrond) would have been necessary for development of a cavern system — but Menegroth was far north of Andram. It has been assumed, therefore, that these were not large natural caverns but were primarily hand-cut.
