What is restoration ? I often wonder ... it is a marvellous thing because without full time conservation efforts we would lose most of the marvels the past has left us.
But when I walk in Carcassonne, I often wonder what the city really looked like in the Middle Ages. What we see now is a Viollet-le-Duc impression of what it should have looked like. I often wonder : if someone from the fourteenth century were to come back : would he/she recognize the place ?
