Underground quarries (France)


The quarrymen took stones for using them to build castles and cathedrals. It was a difficult and dangerous work. They worked in the dark using an oil lamp. They transported the stones in the underground galleries by using the force of animals. Out of the quarries the boats continued the transport on the rivers.
