recluse, whereas in fact everyone who's ever been to Oxenmoot has been to her
house. I suspect that Priscilla just doesn't want to talk with these people,
possibly because she doesn't want to give the impression that the Tolkien
family officially endorses the film. Furthermore, there is no "home" of J.

life, none of which had any huge sentimental value to him. I presume that
most of them still stand, but there's nothing in them particularly that would
make any of them important sites for Tolkien lovers.
