#GameofThrones used #Iceland's #Thingvellir Park as the #BloodyGate. Its landscape is caused by the Eurasian and #NorthAmerican tectonic plates meeting there and pulling apart at a rate of 2 cms per year. This made a rift valley: low land between 2 separating continents.

#MagheramorneQuarry, #NorthernIreland, is the set for #CastleBlack and #TheWall in #GameofThrones. The quarry wall is used as a backdrop and effects make it look huge.

In the 1800s, #NovaScotia sold the best #grindstones in #NorthAmerica! A #grindstone is a round stone, usually #sandstone, used for sharpening tools. #LowerCove in #Cumberland County was the main area where the #stones were extracted, shaped and exported from.

The biggest company was #Atlantic #Grindstone which operated from 1831 to the early 1900s in #LowerCove because it had excellent quality #sandstone and access to #tidewater for exporting. Access to tidewater is still a key advantage for #NovaScotia #mining companies.

Prior to the 1800s, #Acadians produced #grindstones from #LowerCove and other sites on #ChignectoBay for domestic use. The #British army used grindstones from #LowerCove to sharpen their weapons in the #Warof1812.
