Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That looks like Essex mud but the building are more like Germany And is that a German flag? Difficult to tell.

It does look a bit like Germany but I couldn't find the "Schwarz-Rot-Gold" anywhere.

Either that or the North Sea coast of Belgium/Holland/Germany. There are a lot of estuaries along that coast.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Nah, nobody has really come really close, at least in what regards the country. A big help:

There are vestiges of human occupation back to 100 000 years. In ancient times belonged to the Armorique Confederation, a Celtic territory. In medieval times, more than 1000 years ago, a Duc known as the crooked beard built a fortress to protect the population from Viking attacks .
Before the XVII century existed there, near the water, a quarter where lived cod fishermen.

No Faster, it is not on the Continental sides of the English channel, but it is not far away.

I think you are right - that flag looks like yellow and black. Now I look a little closer, what I thought was red is a buoy. Oooops

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That would be Alan II, Duke of Brittany. Maybe I'm being dense but I still can't place the town.

No, it was Alain Barbetorte, not Alain II. A bit confusing because there is previously a Alan I, the Great but curiously this Alan is only known as Barbetorte. There is effectively a Alain II but reigned 36 years after the Alain Barbetorte.


come on, the region is not that big
