Glimmingehus, Skåne, Sweden

 

"Glimmingehus, located in Simrishamn Municipality, Skåne County in southern Sweden, is the best preserved medieval castle in Scandinavia. It was built 1499-1506, during an era when Scania formed a vital part of Denmark, and contains many defensive arrangements of the era, such as parapets, false doors and dead-end corridors, 'murder-holes' for pouring boiling pitch over the attackers, moats, drawbridges and various other forms of death traps to surprise trespassers and protect the nobles against peasant uprisings. The lower part of the castle's stone walls are 2.4 meters (94 inches) thick and the upper part 1.8 meters (71 inches)."

In Main Square of Santa Pau (Girona)

"In Europe, as the towns and cities of the Middle Ages began to grow, and the general populace was unable to read, instead of signs that read "cobbler", "miller", "tailor", or "blacksmith" would use an image associated with their trade such as a boot, a suit, a hat, a clock, a diamond, a horse shoe, a candle or even a bag of flour." This subject has always fascinated me, and during this last trip to Paris, I took a photo of this fellow that I had seen many times before. Can you guess what this merchant was advertising? It took a while for me to figure it out ...with the help of a knowledgeable friend and Google! Make your guess, and I'll post the answer tonight.

The interior of Exeter Cathedral is as glorious as the exterior. Here is a detail showing the marvelous craftsmanship of the medieval artists who worked for hundreds of years on this massive project. Truly awesome!

The splendor of the Middle Ages

campiglia - Since many archaeological evidence in the municipal area is known to have existed prior appropriations to the Middle Ages. The territory already in Etruscan and Roman settlement is also due to the fact that the area is rich in minerals.Today we still visited the furnaces and mine shafts that the Etruscans exploited in search of metals. Were identified traces of a village of huts VIII-IX, it is in the Middle Ages that the town takes shape. In the eleventh century we have the first evidence of written sources that speak of the urban settlement of Campillia although it is certainly from the middle of the twelfth century, when the historical events influenced the Pisan village, that we start talking more and more of the city.

This amazing stained-glass window in St. David's Cathedral, Wales reminded me of the excellence of craftsmanship in Medieval times.

On another visit with grandchildren to Richmond Castle last year, we were treated with some Medieval Pageantry consisting of ladies dances and armed combat. This was provided by the Plantaganet Medieval Archery and Combat Society.

 

The colour of the ladies dresses, atmosphere and action of the combat was very entertaining.. we loved it : ))

Just a quick bracketing / series mode test of the new D300 on my way home yesterday (out the car window). Yay, talk machine gun! The sky sucks - mostly because the weather sucks, too ;-) 5 Exposures blended using Photomatix.

 

In medieval times, Regensberg castle was the political center of the area.

Siendo los puentes medievales verdaderas maravillas ingenieriles y artísticas, suelen pasar bastante desapercibidos por el gran público, éste de Frías es in embargo uno de los más famosos y admirados.

 

Forma junto al de Puente la Reina, Cangas de Onís, Balmaseda, Besalú y algunos pocos más, ese grupo de puentes privilegiados que sí aparecen en las guías turísticas convencionales.

 

La base del puente y los tajamares son de época romana y por él cruzaba la calzada romana antes citada. Ya en tiempos medievales fueron necesarios importantes reconstrucciones.

 

Este puente fortificado de Frías es un portento de longitud y belleza. Mide 143 metros de largo y una altura máxima de 11,3 de petril al río y otros tanto tiene la gran torre central .

 

Consta de nueve arcos de distinto perfil (apuntados y rebajados) y su trazado algo irregular responde a la necesidad de aprovechar las rocas que emergen distintos puntos del río para asentarlo.

 

La torre construida en el centro tiene planta poligonal y su función era controlar el paso y cobrar el impuesto de paso o "pontazgo" que permitía, entre otras cosas, sufragar las continuas reparaciones que serían necesarias para mantener su integridad.

Church of Frisian village Hijum, 12th century church with graveyard on man-made mound (Hijum, Friesland, The Netherlands). Hand-made hills, called wierde or terp, protected people against flooding caused by high tides.

My vision of the classic fortified medieval castle as we have it today. A classic tourist attraction both for kids and adults with all accompanying events and features. From fair where you can buy "autentic" (made in China) medieval weapons, utensils and armors to medieval show program and entertainers.

 

MOC is laid over 20 baseplates, and originally started as a large castle project, but was later decided to move it a couple of hundred years in the future - Today. It was displayed in klub "Kockice" city diorama at Varazdin exhibition, and will be displayed on LEGO World Kopenhagen this year.

 

Overall photos.
