Educational workshops: builder workshops

From May to June, discover educational workshop. Immersed in the heart of the eventful history of Provence, the children will in turn become builders, crossbowmen or attackers! Each workshop includes: crossbow shooting, a demonstration of war machines and an animated discovery.

The workshop revolves around 3 main questions:
- Kindergarten and CP: what pushed the builders to install their Castle at the top of a rocky outcrop?
- From CE1 to CM2: how were the buildings organized at the feet of the defensive towers?
- College: has the evolution of war techniques influenced builders over the centuries?
