office of the governor of ferraiones

the ferraiones should have a history of fierce independence but also a mixed population, one original, another more recent, early modern arrivals. at this point their naval prowess has reduced itself to fishing industry mostly, and the once powerful maritime cities are now quiet working towns.

they can be seen to have been mostly romanized faels, hardly any ethnic roman settlement. and were largely pastoral or fisherman until the arrival of the norse. whose presence made the people warlike and ambitious, and led to the rise of the vetials, which were originally fishing captians who gradually achieved a separate naval defense role. (special native ships?)

the norse called them the jarn Islands, after Ferraoines (calque) or rarely Suðurmenniyar (southmen islands)

prehistory

"Due to the practice, dating to at least the early Neolithic, of building in stone on virtually treeless islands, the Ferraiones are extremely rich in physical remains of the prehistoric eras and there are over 100 archaeological sites all told. A midden site at _____ on the south coast of ____, dated to 4320–4030 BC, has provided the first evidence of Mesolithic human activity on the isles. The same site provides dates for early Neolithic activity and finds at ___ in ___ have been dated to 3400 BC. "Ferraoine knives" are stone tools that date from this period made from felsite from _____."

the Latin Bay Colony?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conquest_of_Ceuta (original "siege of gibraltar" sort of. except this was part of the british takeover. not british defense. i imagine that after seven years war, britain is left as overall hegemon in faeland. there is perhaps a castle or some fortification atop the ridge of this peninsula. but not highly developed. the brits come in seeking to establish their mandate in the area and are repulsed by the city states. but, having naval and military superiority, they lay siege and take the peninsula. ensuing negotiations grant britain control of the pen. and some sort of toll rights for ships entering and leaving the harbor. more or less this is how it stands until sometime either early or mid 19th cent)
