Coz has been doing an excellent job organising photos and telling a bit about our trip to France; I should really chime in and talk about the cave paintings and the cheese and the churches and the cheese and the castles and the wine and cheese... but this is not that post. This one - this one right here - is for the engineers.

During the course of our wandrings through cultureville we managed to find strange little bits of medieval engineering - some of which are hauntingly familiar. We took photos, which I put here. A couple of teasers:

A pocket sundial, apparently stolen from Tops and sent back in time.

A clockwork spitjack, with winding monkey.

A rather tasty organ gun.

Trebs. Real ones, what chuck 100-pound rocks instead of tennis balls.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled cheese.
