      Middle-earth of the Third Age is, of course, long before Medieval Europe.
      But on the other hand the technological level of the societies (at least
      Gondor) seem roughly equivalent.
      The Shire appears to be, culturally, at the level of England in about 1750.
      One of the few things I like about Jackson's movies was that the Shire
      looked right. It would have been easy to make all of Middle-earth look
      generic-fantasy-novel medieval, but in fact various aspects of it seem to be anywhere
      between Dark Ages and late Enlightenment.
