The Faeroe Islands? (Danish Faeroerne or F{roerne). Isn't that an island 
group, which is an integral part of Denmark in the North Atlantic Ocean, 
about midway between the Shetland Islands and Iceland, formed by a sub-

formation" of fireclay, sandstone, shale and brown coal makes up the 
secondary stratum which was afterwards topped by dolerite?

of Scandinavian descent and still speak a modified form of the old Norse 
called Faeroese! But I it's only an area of 1399 sq km (540 sq mi) with
a population (1989 estimate) of 47,800. Are you SURE of these faeroesian 

Thanx for the info on Iceland and Finland. I can add THAT to my list now!
