Authentic Austrian castle will take 30 years to build

A team of experts in Austria plans to construct an authentic medieval castle in the town of Friesach, using only period construction methods. The project is expected to take 30 years to complete.

Johannes Grabmayer, project leader at the Department of History at the Alpen-Adria-Universität, says, "Upon passing through the gateway, one enters an authentic medieval construction site. Using only the strength of humans and animals, trees have been felled and the necessary infrastructure for the construction of the castle has been established."
