[edit] Great Barrows

In the chapter 'In the House of Tom Bombadil' appears the name Great Barrows which refers especially to these barrows: 'They heard of the Great Barrows, and the green mounds, and the stone-rings upon the hills and in the hollows among the hills.' Should we use the name 'Great Barrows' (instead of more general 'barrows') of these graves? --Tik 09:16, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
