Guedelon and Accrobranche

The group spent the morning in Guédelon, a medieval castle-construction project that started in 1998.  The pamphlet describes it as follows:

At Guédelon, we are building in order to better understand medieval castle-construction.  We have an advisory scientific committee, made up of art historians, archaeologists and castellologists, which guides and monitors work on site.  In turn, researchers have the unique opportunity to observe a team of builders on a working medieval construction site.

The students found it very interesting, and enjoyed the guided tour.

The afternoon was spent at the Parc d’aventure bois de la folie, where the group did an “accrobranches” or climbing and zip line tour.  The group was fearless, and remained unfazed by the showers.  A wonderful time was had by all!
