Journey through Middle-earth in a new Google Chrome Experiment

Not all those who wander are lost… Journey through Middle-earth in a new Google Chrome Experiment available here: http://www.thehobbit.com/middle-earth/.

Users can zoom in to explore Trollshaw Forest, Rivendell and Dol Guldur, with new locations set to be added in the weeks ahead. Each destination on the map gives the visitor access to its history and the characters who inhabit it, or presents unique survival challenges in which fans can test their wits.
