Some pics of HYW battle places in south west France, in the Quercy-Périgord area :

The castle of Castelnau, which was an english garrison during the most of the war. Taken by French in 1442.
 
In front of the castle of Castelnau, on the opposite bank of the river Dordogne, the castle of Beynac, which was a french place during all the war.

Incredible, so much is preserved it's easy to visualize these battles taking place there.
Sing, goddess, of Achilles' ruinous anger
Which brought ten thousand pains to the Achaeans,
And cast the souls of many stalwart heroes
To Hades, and their bodies to the dogs
And birds of prey

Yes, the most of these places, like Rocamadour or Puy-l'Eveque have inhabitants. For the castles, a lot are now museums. For example :
 
 
The castle of Castelnaud, now medieval warfare museum : http://www.sites-en-perigord.com/uk/sites/chateau-de-castelnaud.html   and www.castelnaud.com
 
All this places were battle places during the HYW, but they are older than the XIVth century. Rocamadour, for example, is a place of pilgrimage since VIIth or VIIIth century. The building of the Valentre Bridge of Cahors began in 1307 and was achieved during the war (the roadway about 1355 and towers about 1380). You have to know that this bridge was is service for cars till... 1995 !!
 
Yes, if you are interesting by old castles and towns, south west is better for you than the mediterranean coast, full of tourists and where local tourism busyness is without morality (it's only my point of vew).

Other pics : little fortresses built during the XIIIe century and used during the HYW by littles english companies, little french urban or royal troops, as well as bands of outlaws. Now, these places are called "english castles" or "english rocks".

The english castle of the rock of Bouzies, beside the Lot river.
 
 
The english castle of Brengues, on the nothern bank of the Cele river.
 
The english castle of Vers. In fact, it was only a part of the defensive system of the village of Vers ( hold by in English in 1359 and during the 1370')
 
The rock of Autoire. This place was commanded by famous mercenary captain Johan de Lassalle during the 1370', before he goes to fight in Italy.

I always found France to be interesting, many of their cities look as if they haven't changed much since the middle ages, stuck in time. Like Paris for instance, the city always seems to have an 1800's vibe.

I was only in Paris, for about five times, during the spring (mai-juin)of 1971, and I loved the city. I would visit again anytime if I just had the sous!

I certainly have the time.

Why, bless my soul!

Dawn, as you well know, I used it to describe a monetary instrument. Perhaps you would have rather I had used "sou", instead?

"sou

"small Fr. coin," 1556, back-formation from sous, pl. of O.Fr. soul, formerly a coin worth one-twentieth of a livre, from L. solidus (see solidus)."

Of course I used the word as a word play on the American phrase "If I only had the coin!"

But a really delightful post anyway.

Perhaps you want to be my sous-chef?

100 Years War conveys an enjoyable feel that reminds you of Fiesta Online and Luvinia Online. After all, they are all developed by Asian game companies. I need more troops of the RTS game Kingdoms Social, and I have posted my email on the MMOWood forum. If someone else can help me, please email me. And thanks in advance.
