From the beginning of the Middle Ages, buildings made of wood and then stone - fortified castles - emerged as symbols of power. France was almost covered with castles at one point with their popularity skyrocketing between the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. A group of engineers is now trying to recreate a similar structure called the Guédelon Castle. Set in motion in 1997, this work-in-progress wonder will take 25 years to be fully completed. Follow the challenges of such a construction project in this documentary.
