Alderney is the most northerly of the Channel Islands but lies only 16km (10 miles) from the Normandy coast of France. About 8 sq km (3 sq mi) in area, the island is a plateau with two main inlets - Braye Harbour in the north and Longy Bay in the southeast. Most inhabitants live in the only town, St. Anne's, overlooking Braye Harbour. Tourism and dairy farming are the main industries. The earliest known inhabitants were builders of megalithic tombs and evidence of Bronze Age habitation can be seen. The Romans built a small fort (the Nunnery) on the island. In the 11th century Alderney came under Norman control, and hence, after 1066, into the possession of the English Crown. It is now administered as a part of Guernsey.
