France's new medieval castle

Recommended Posts

The BBC has reported on a project, started in 1998, which will see an 'authentic' medieval castle built in Burgandy. This project goes a long way beyond the previous, what in comparison now seem fairly limited, attempts at archaeological 'recreations' of the past or living history events such as the annual event at Kentwell Hall which began in 1979 in a similar way with an equivalent timestream progressing a day at a time based on real events. It looks like a lot of useful data is already being gathered about possible reasons for why some castles were built in the way they were.


Deep in the forests of central France, an unusual architectural experiment is half-way to completion, as a team of masons replicates in painstaking detail the construction of an entire medieval castle.
