The Annals of Aman is a text written by J.R.R. Tolkien that serves as a chronology of fictional events taking place in his invented world of Middle-earth, through the end of the First Age, including an explanation of time reckoning in Valian Years. This text is reproduced as Part Two of Morgoth's Ring, the tenth volume of Christopher Tolkien's The History of Middle-earth.

Following the Annals of Aman in Morgoth's Ring is "The First Phase", of Part Three.


The making of the Annals of Aman dates to the period following the completion of The Lord of the Rings. There are three extant versions of the text, including a carefully emended manuscript, a typescript and its carbon copy each featuring different corrections and notes, and a typescript of the earlier sections of the text that deviates from the previous typescript. Christopher Tolkien surmises that the first typescript was composed in 1958. A reworking of the earlier Annals of Valinor (which was the working title of the manuscript until Tolkien changed it) and connected closely with the narrative of the incomplete 1937 Quenta Silmarillion, The Annals of Aman moves from a compressed narrative style to a fuller accounting of the events of the chronology.[1]
