From the simple sling the premises of artillery, visitors will discover the evolution of siege techniques. With the help of the public, and Pied-fat Coquillard will operate the various war machines: tinker, bombard, trebuchet and other guns if the typical names
During live fire (but harmless projectiles!) Ingenuity of old builders and performance of these machines will be demonstrated in front of the stunned young and old.
Finally, up to the body-to-body and best knights! You will witness jousting in period dress but also in armor. Beautiful shows in perspective!
