Extraordinarily Unique Project Starting Up in Arkansas

The brainchild of Michel Guyot, a full scale reinactment of the raising of a 13th century fortress has already started taking hold on a hillside in northern Arkansas.

A team of masons, carpenters, blacksmiths and the like needed to build a castle using techniques right out of the middle ages is forming. They will be out there for twenty years constructing this fortress by hand. This historical construction site will be open to the public as of May 1st, 2010.

Individuals, as well as groups can come learn first hand what architectural techniques were used to build a ribbed vault, an arrow loop etc. There will also be opportunities for the public to get involved with the project working side by side with team members for short periods of time in our volunteer program and internships.

Tryouts are taking place right now for professional stone cutters, experienced in or willing to apply techniques used in the late 13th century.

Please take a moment to visit the website. Contact Julie Sonveau for further information at 870-436-7625 or by e-mail at  julie.sonveau@ozarkmedievalfortress.com.
