Description: "...the caverns were found and widened by the Petty-Dwarves, who called them the Nulukkizdîn. Finrod employed the Dwarves of the Blue Mountains to continue the work. So great was the task that the Dwarves named him "Felagund" - Hewer of Caves...
"In Nargothrond there were: several rooms used as armouries; a series of great halls in which Finrod, Celegorm, and Curufin addressed the populace; a small, deep chamber in which Lúthien was placed; a secret exit through which she escaped with Huan; and a great inner hall where Glaurung amassed his golden bed."
From The Atlas of Middle-earth, Revised Ed., p. 21
