Modern masons recreate medieval castle
Published on July 5th, 2010 | by Sevaan Franks1
Today, the walls are rising gradually from the red Burgundy clay. The great hall is almost finished, with only part of the roof remaining, while the main tower edges past the 15m (50ft) mark.
Builders use sandstone quarried from the very ground from which the castle is emerging.
Modern cement did not exist in the 13th Century, so mortar is made from slaked lime and sand. For tools they have basic ironware.
