Clock tower on the hill St Hippolyte

Author 'Boucher Marc dit de Meilh' (Id 159711 ) : On the hill Saint-Hippolyte we can see the vestiges of the old convent (ruined by the Baron of Adrets) and the entrance to the priory there is only one square tower and a round tower on which is fixed a clock. In this place, surrounded by fortified walls, the Benedictines lived in the Middle Ages. Marc Boucher said Meilhan.

Beautiful photo medieval. In the left foreground we can see an excavation laid bare, without doubt an ancient well gutted. At the top of the tower to the clock, it is a watch-tower intended for the alert. Then still at the left, a square tower, which is the ancestor of the bastion. It was the place or were installed in the archers. On the other side on the right is a tapered circular tower with several floors and openings. There must have been inside the small artillery pieces as fauconneaux. It could also have crossbowmen. The scope of a tile of a crossbow was one hundred toises or two hundred meters. The two round towers are fitted to roofs, conical trunk, this is to prevent the falling of flaming arrows or other projectiles. See you soon for other photos. Friendships. Marcel.

Hello Crabecanoë. I am amazed by your knowledge and I confess that you give me clarification each time. It is a pleasure to read you. I understand very well the construction of roofs conical trunk so that the projectile slides and does not stop. The flaming arrows, otherwise, would soon have destroyed the roofs and laid bare the whole of the defence. Well seen also the issue of the towers and their roles in the surveillance and defence of the territory and the protection of the population. The excavation... but this is awesome of you... we could actually think of a well torn. A pit, perhaps ??? But then for what service ??? In any case you summed it up with this photograph and I am proud to have a historian who looks at my work. I thank you for this follow-up. I've seen partially your blog, your website, and I see that you move a lot and I'm proud of that and I thank you and congratulate you, of course. Have a good evening. Marc.
