Artist's Description

Castle of Bouillon – Belgium.
The castle of Bouillon belonged to Godfrey of Bouillon who had inherited from his uncle. He sold to finance his departure for the first crusade to the Holy Land. This fortress was built to protect the Duchy of Lower Lotharingie, strategically located on the axis Reims – Liège – Aachen The castle, which housed up to 200 soldiers, is located just above a bend in the Semois. As it was known to occupy an impregnable position on a rocky outcrop, the enemy preferred to apply the technique headquarters starve the defenders, especially in winter. But in the castle, it was all planned. They had access to drinking water and food stocks were lifted along a gallery of 30 m deep. The pulley was operated by soldiers who were running around in a sort of wooden carousel. The intendant of the castle had a key function: he was calculating the amount of food needed to maintain a siege.
