Our closest Chateau, the Chateau at La Celle Geunand, held a weekend medieval event. There were many attractions including a Medieval Market, Animations, Tir à l'arc (archery), visits under the chateau into the cellars and a special "repas" at lunchtime on Sunday. This meal was accompanied by musicians and dancers who performed music and dance of "old France" and sang madrigals. It was a thoroughly good entertainment.
In the village of La Celle Geunand there is also a museum of Tools (Musèe de l'Outils), some 4,500 tools, and some 25 old tractors on display. Dave was somewhat surprised to see some technological items he used when he was at University and when he first started teaching. Namely a "Banda" duplicating machine and an Olympia Typewriter!!
