The Oceana Wall, just south-east of Hurbanova. The archway and bars were added to this section for use in a movie, circa 1910.

The Oceana Wall is a brick wall south of Hurbanova, stretching over 2 miles. The wall is very old, although its exact age is not known. It was almost completely undamaged 100 years ago, but it has been demolished in places to make room for roads and railways. These days there are active projects to try to save the last remaining parts of the wall. The best preserved part is just south of Hurbanova. The other parts of the wall are almost completely gone.

In March and February 2008 the wall was in danger because of plans to lay a new railway at the south of Hurbanova. Fortunately, this proposal was rejected by the then King of Lovia Dimitri I, and the wall remained in place.

It is an official monument of the state of Oceana.

Age Edit

The wall's age is uncertain, although there are many theories surrounding it. The most famous is the one told to the tourists, that the wall is 500 years old and was built before the first Western man ever came to Lovia. It's not known who built the wall, but it certainly suggests that an earlier civilisation existed in Lovia before the arrival of the Founding Fathers. According to another story, the wall is 300 years old and was built by shipwrecked mariners, who also built a small settlement which was later abandoned. The oldest picture of the wall was taken in 1886, but the wall is also shown on the first map of Hurbanova, dating back to 1884. Drawings and accounts of the wall already exist from an exploration of Peace Island in 1878. The wall is almost impossible to date because the bricks have been constantly replaced in order to preserve it.

Mystery Edit

Although geologically the older bricks appear to be made from locally available material, settlers who encountered the wall also noted the total absence of kilns, quarries, mounds, molds, or other evidence of the industrial procedures and tools needed for even the most rudimentary production of bricks (much less mortar) by a Late Stone Age culture, within any reasonable distance.
