Medieval construction machinery
The attractive installation presents full-scale functional replicas of the machines, which have been created based on the study of historical sources and consistently manufactured using the craftsmanship of the period. They represent a unique reconstruction of the original medieval construction technology on a European scale.
Medieval construction machines were ingenious in their simplicity, consistency and production of spare parts. All these devices skilfully apply basic mechanical principles, thanks to which it was possible to effectively use limited human or animal power, for example, when lifting and moving heavy loads, when driving piles for the foundations of buildings and during other construction activities.
