Behind the scenes during a siege

Every day, entertainment on the siege of 1204-1205!

The year is 1205. The armies of King Philip Augustus of France are laying siege to the fortress of Chinon held by King John Lackland of England. A cultural mediator from the fortress invites you to meet the soldiers and craftsmen who worked to win this war of attrition.  

You will witness the handling of medieval war machines at three different times: at 10:45am and 4:30pm, you will be on the side of the English to organise the defence of the Fortress, while at 2:30pm, you will go to the French camp to test the effectiveness of their strategy.
