            This time-lapse shows one of our Stonemasons hard at work using traditional skills to cut a new cope stone at Culzean Castle and Country Park. All sides are hand cut and dressed and then a slope is added, known as a wash. This allows water to be shed from the top of the wall. The stone is then given a uniform tooling to match the original stone it is designed to replace.

              LET´S BUILD A CASTLE _____________________________________________________________ This 43-minute film especially made for children features the most unusual building site on earth. In contrast to a modern day site where machines and fossil fuel do the heavy work, at Guédelon, people power does the job. 50 workers deliver an amazing performance. All the raw materials come from the site itself. Stone, earth, sand, clay, color, wood and water. On the 25 acre site, nature, provides everything necessary... and for free! Lumberjacks deliver the wood from the forest; carpenters use it to build hoists, scaffolding and timberwork. Charcoal burners produce the charcoal for the forge. Blacksmiths hammer out the tools, spikes and nails. Rope makers twist hemp ropes for the hoists. Stone breakers and stonemasons break out and shape stone in the site’s own quarry. Potters and basket weavers create the necessary vessels. The actors in this performance are not acting; most of them are master craftsmen with many years of experience, a wealth of knowledge and a great deal of determination.

                To visit Guédelon is like a journey into history. The reason is as simple as unbelievable. In the forest of Saint-Sauveur a castle will be build. But not the way we are used to. 50 craftsworkers are building a castle with abidance by the XIIIth century techniques in a natural site which provides them with every building material: water, stone, earth, sand and wood. In Guédelon, there is no excavator, no drill, no electricity. Quarriers, stone hewers, masons, carpenters are working just like seven centuries ago. That's a continuous, lively and progressive building yard where towers, curtains and the keep will spend 25 years coming out from earth. The site is well-known in France. Around 350.000 visitors are joining this site every year (this is also the way the project is financed). Reinhard Kungel and his team is filming in Guédelon since the beginning. After realizing a 45minute documentary for ARTE in 2003 and a special program for kids in 2007 (3 x 15 Min., WDR) now they finished a long-term-documentary from the beginning until 2010.
