Mathieu Bonnemaison, a blacksmith, at work at the furnace in the forge at the Chateau de Guedelon, a castle built since 1997 using only medieval materials and processes, photographed in 2017, in Treigny, Yonne, Burgundy, France. In the forge, the site's blacksmiths repair and manufacture all the metalwork needed for the project, including chisels, axes, adzes, gates and hinges. The Guedelon project was begun in 1997 by Michel Guyot, owner of the nearby Chateau de Saint-Fargeau, with architect Jacques Moulin. It is an educational and scientific project with the aim of understanding medieval building techniques and the chateau should be completed in the 2020s. Picture by Manuel Cohen
