Dagorlad was the location of the Battle of Dagorlad, fought there between Sauron's forces and the Last Alliance of Elves and Men at the end of the Second Age. The bodies of the dead decayed as normal, but over time part of the field became a wetland, the Dead Marshes, where the images of the fallen could be seen. Later, in the Third Age, the Dagorlad was the site of many battles between Gondor and various Easterling armies. The countless battles of two ages left Dagorlad as a devastated wasteland, contaminated and unhealthy, with sumps of poisonous slick and mounds of scorched earth.
The Battle of Dagorlad occurred in the year 3434 of the Second Age. It was fought between the army of the Last Alliance under Gil-galad and Elendil and an army of Orcs with other creatures loyal to Sauron. It is unknown how long it lasted, but ultimately the Last Alliance won the battle and proceeded into Mordor.
In Peter Jackson's movie adaptation of the The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, Dagorlad is misspelled as Dagorland on various maps shown in the films, and in the appendices of the special extended DVD editions.
