Guedelon is a current day mediaeval project.

A team of fifty people have taken on an extraordinary feat: to build a castle using the same techniques and materials used in the Middle Ages. The wood, stone, earth, sand and clay needed for the castle's construction are all to be found on-site in an abandoned quarry.

Work on the site began in 1997 and it is expected to take 25 years to complete.
