Have you read Karen Wynn Fonstad's 'The Atlas of Middle-Earth'?
This has a very good map of the first age showing everything from Utumno to Cuivienenn to Taniquetil in Valinor.
It also has a diagram showing the location of Utumno during the time of the two pillars of light - Illuin and Ormal.
In the second diagram, the ruins of Utumno are placed just north of the middle of the Ered Engrin (Iron Mountains) which stretched from Beleriand in the West to the Orcarni (Mountains of the East - whose southourn tip was close to Cuivienen).
If you look at a map of Middle Earth in the Third age, it places the ruins of Utumno somewhere directly north of Eriador, and probably submerged under water in the 'Ice Bay' just south of the Cpae of Forochel.

Great, Menchu, this is a great map indeed!
Well, Kraas, you can see "Utumno" written not far to the east of the lamp of Illuin.
Do a google search and you'll find tons of stuff. This guy's site in particular I liked. Tons of maps of Arda from various sources through the ages.Originally posted by Gareth
