Clash! Yay!! That was the sound of the valiant knights and braying crowd at the battles at the Copenhagen Medieval Market, now in its tenth year, over the Pentecostal bank holiday weekend. From May 13 to 16, tens of thousands of Copenhageners flocked to Valbyparken in the southwestern corner of the capital to travel back in time.

What’s missing from all of these symbols of former aristocratic glory is a pulse — a community filled with decadence, despair, determination, decorum or even debauchery. But deep in the heart of the French countryside, I found a medieval castle teeming with life. When my husband and I arrived, the men on-site were drenched in sweat as they stood back to admire their handiwork. Clad in linen tunics cinched with rope and leather belts, they used a wooden triangle and...

Das Klopfen eines Steinmetzes ist im Wald bei Friesach, Bezirk St. Veit in Kärnten, zu hören. Unterbrochen vom Sägen der Zimmerleute und gefolgt vom Geräusch eines Ambosses. Man nimmt ein Schnauben und Hufschlag wahr; ein Pferd wird sichtbar, das mit einem Fuhrwerk Kalksteine auf den Berg zieht. In Friesach wird eine Burg errichtet. Eine mittelalterliche Burg. Dies geschieht jedoch nicht mithilfe moderner, sondern herkömmlicher Geräte und Methoden. Also mit der Kraft von Mensch und Tier.

Depuis 1427, la ville a été gouvernée par les Médicis, puis est devenu une république, puis re-les Médicis, puis s’est fait assiéger pendant 10 mois avant d’être intégrée dans le Saint Empire romain, et a entre autres subi 21 ans de dictature fasciste sous Mussolini, une occupation nazie et la télé de Berlusconi...
