Just out of interest, I checked Mark Faith's facebook page. Mr. Faith seems to fancy himself an expert in Tolkien bibliography:

Someone hasn't been reading his Hammond.

I don't have any connections with the museum, but have visited it several times during the consturction... I don't have a clue what they will want to put on display or what their real plans are. But you can find Bernd Greisinger on Facebook and contact him if you wish to see if there is any room to aid him out.

Beren, I think your reply was fair and to the point and I agree with all your points.

Also some members here may be happy to loan items to the Musuem for display, can you look into whether the Musuem would be interested in this.

Yes Trotter I did remove his remarks which did not have anything to do with the article or better marked it as spam. I will not allow people to ventilate their anger towards third parties through my website.

Mark Faith had commented on Beren's original story but the comment seems to be no longer available on the site.

"If this story remains live, you will find further comments on my Facebook page including those about your involvement in the past venture. I will not sit back and watch my ideas stolen and used by you and he for your own profilt! You both had the chance to work with me as we did from the start, but chose instead to leave all of us at Festival in the Shire hanging."

Beren had replied "This article is a translation of an article that was published by the Italian Tolkien Society. I have no involvement in the development of this Musuem, just like you I have visited it some times in the past when it was under construction. And so far as I know this museum is not being made for profit, but is there to promote Middle-earth and all things Tolkien. I'm happy you promote the same with the Festival in the Shire. Keep up the great work!"
