The remnants of one of Wiwaxia's oldest settlements, c. 300, were uncovered during the construction of Tilney's ariport express train tunnel in the early 1980's. While little remains of the original Edicarian people, the strategic spot on Lake Pambdelurion was attractive for the first Ingerish Buccaneers, who built Castle Tilney and Tilney Keep overlooking the lake in the Old Town around 1550. The impressive ruins are a popular spot for tourists.
