Larry was given a tunic to wear, and upon seeing it he remarked, it looks like a hospital gown. Larry first worked in the quarry where he broke rock with Anthony our quarryman.Once Larry got the hang of swinging a sledge hammer the work went quickly. Once enough stone was broken Larry pulled the stone in a handcart to the castle site.
Larry then worked with Brad, our stone cutter, who showed Larry the basics of stone cutting. Once Larry learned how to break and cut the stone he went with Jacob our site manager to learn about the roman crane.
Larry then worked with Kieth our stonecutter/mason and Curt our Head Mason. As Larry was working on a stone his chisel broke which made the blacksmith his obvious next stop.
At the Smithy he worked with Luke our blacksmith who showed him some of the things he makes and how the metal is heated and shaped.
After Larry had lunch Jacob conscripted his help to cut and haul a tree. Jacob and Larry cut and limbed the tree then Jacob hooked Honey, our Belgian draft horse, up and pulled the log out of the woods.
By this time, after quite a bit of work, Larry was quite tired and ready to call it a day.
It was a privilege for the Ozark Medieval Fotress to be given the chance to appear on the History Channel. In the meantime the crew of the fortress is anxious to see it air in 2012.
