Building A Medieval Castle In France The Old Way

Building A Medieval Castle In France The Old Way

The Guedelon castle is a typical French medieval chateau-fort being built using the techniques, materials and rules of the 13th Century. It is the brainchild of Michel Guyot, local landowner, and business woman Maryline Martin, now site's managing director, and has been in construction since June 1997 when the first stone was laid. What started out as an eccentric project is now an established enterprise, employing 65 people and drawing in visitors from around Europe every year. The medieval castle will be finished around 2030.
