Pictures: Tolkien's Middle-earth map goes on display

The map used by JRR Tolkien to create the fantasy world Middle-earth for 'The Lord of The Rings' is going on display for two days. Can you spot any familiar places?
The map itself was drawn for in 1954 by Tolkien’s son Christopher. It was included at the back of the first two volumes of The Lord of the Rings. Most of the scribbles on it are from Tolkien himself.
