"Guédelon Castle: A New Medieval Chateau"

There's something historic happening near the quiet French town of Treigny in Burgundy. A full-scale medieval chateau is being built entirely by hand, with the tools and techniques of the thirteenth century. It's an exercise in archaeology, and was initially begun in 1999, with funding from the European Union, regional councils, and a little help from the private sector. Now the project pays for itself by charging an entrance fee.

Here are some photos depicting the Guédelon project as it has progressed over the years. Completion is expected in the mid 2020's. Take a peek, and enjoy!
