No faster, google for the ancient Armorique. This village belonged to Armorique.

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 .

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ok, I noticed something that could eventually be confusing regarding Armorique.

The village is inside the region that is shown by this map and I mean all the map.



A BIG clue: Today the village is not in Britany. It was in Britany from 851 till the XVIII century. No, they did not move the village but they altered what belonged to the historic region, don't know why

I'm not totally convinced but ... Trans-la-ForÍt ?

edit .... which just happens to be landlocked some ten miles from the coast ..... so I think perhaps not.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I thought someone would have got it while I was away.

So Paulo, there seems to be some conflict about Alain Barbetorte. From Wikipedia:
Quote:
Alan II (died 952), nicknamed Wrybeard (French: Barbe-Torte) and also known as Le Renard "The Fox", was Count of Vannes, Poher, and Nantes, and Duke of Brittany from 938 to his death. During his rule, he defended Brittany from Viking invasions.
Everything points to it being Nantes, but I just canít match the pictures.
