The village of Aamukuu (La. "Morning Moon") was situated on the southern bay of Forochel between the Sarchbel-i-Fannath and the northernmost Lhûn. It was a cluster of twenty-five widely scattered lodges. Unlike many Lumimies villages, Aamukuu was a permanent dwelling place, its lodges constructed of earth, sod and timber. The village derived its name from its location west of two low hills. From almost any point within the village it was possible to see the last moon of autumn and the sun rise together between the two hills. Any Longbeard Dwarf could delight and amaze the villagers by explaining to the Lumimiehet that the name of their village relates to Durin's Day, the Dwarven new year.
