A bit of a different post today, but I thought that I would share this as its awesomeness factor is up there with grilled cheese, and seeing that a large number of my readers are from Europe, and this is the summer holidays, maybe you’ll have a chance to go and visit this place.

Gudelon is a castle in the making, being built in a forest in France. It is being built with only tools, equipment and knowledge known in the 12th century. All the artisans on site use materiels collected from the immediate surroundings. The project was begun back in 1996 and is planned to go through to 2025. Check out the site and watch some of the videos. And imagine your leatherworking rogue striding up to lend a hand.
