a castle in the making
preface Nicolas Faucherre | photographer François Folcher
Présentation en anglais
Have you ever wondered how medieval castles were built ? Where the building materials came from ? How they were transported ? What tools were used ? How were heavy loads hoisted onto the castle walls ?
The secrets of the medieval master-craftsmen are revealed on the Guedelon Medieval Construction Site. This experimental site lies deep in secluded woodland, where the project's founders discovered an abandoned quarry hidden in a landscape seemingly untouched for the last thasound years. Out of this wood ans stone, quarrymen, stonemasons, woodcutters, carpenters,
blacksmiths, tile makers, basket makers, rope makers, carters ans their horses are working together to complete a castle using 13th-century building techniques.
In this book, Guedelon's co-founder, Maryline Martin, and master-mason, Florian Renucci, examine the evidence currently available from documentary sources as well as considering the new insights into medieval masoncraft offered by findings made at Guedelon.
Descriptif de la construction d'un château fort dans le respect des techniques utilisées au XIIIe siècle qui met en lumière les métiers du Moyen Age. Le chantier médiéval de Guédelon en Bourgogne constitue un site pédagogique, historique et scientifique. ©Electre 2021
