As mentioned yesterday, due to the need for contact with the outside world, the inhabitants of inner-city Angliaterra began discussions with the council of the outer city about possible modifications of both inner as well as outer city walls. Readers familiar with the relationship between the inner and outer city dwellers might correctly guess that such discussions would easily get bogged down.
As reported previously, Angliaterra is a walled city dating from the medieval era, located on a broad plain at the base of the Pyrannees in Southern France. As also reported, the astonishing discovery was recently made that within Angliaterra is another city, the inhabitants of which have had practically no contact with the outer world for somewhere between 800 to 1000 years, relying upon a system of secret barter with the inhabitants of the outer city. These inner city inhabitants have their own culture, language and even genetic makeup.
As has been discussed, Angliaterra was recently discovered to have hidden within it another city, the inhabitants of which have had little or no contact with the world (or even the outer city) for perhaps as long as 1000 years. As we've also discussed, keeping the secret of the hidden inner city has had psychological and other consequences on the inhabitants of the outer city of Angliaterra.
(This is the second in a series of pieces about the City of Angliaterra, and it's recently discovered city-within-a-city.)
Examination of the inhabitants of the inner city of Angliaterra is most fascinating, but a clearer context is established by first taking a look at the inhabitants of the outer city.
