[nbos] [FM8] Joerdhgardh Map of Week #188 Released"Mark Oliva" Sun Jan 25th, 2015
With the 188th Map of the Week, we take a look at the abandoned pumice mines
near the village of Goldfields in the northern Border March of Slovania.
Description of the Map Locations
Location No. 1: At this point, the tall grass and low brush end, ending in
a landscape dominated by foamy grey-brown and dirty yellow rock. Both are
forms of pumice. It is said that the Austamaera AEsir used pozzolan type
pumice to produce an early form of concrete. That invention gave birth to
the AEsir town of Vikur (Pumice), which stood on the site of today's
Goldfields. The Austamaera pumice mines and the artisans of Vikur produced
the concrete blocks of which many structures in the southern AEsir Empire
were built. In Goldfields, the two gate towers and the scattered remnants
of the old wall are of concrete brick made by the stonemasons of Vikur.
Unfortunately, the Slovanians lack the technical knowledge and skill of the
AEsir. They do not known how to make concrete or anything else of pumice.
As a result, the mines are abandoned and ignored.

Locations Numbered 3: Openings to subterranean shafts or tunnels.
