It was the ultimate defensive structure in the Middle Ages. Today, it's a vivid reminder of a harsh, violent, and unstable time in history. A lightning rod for bloody conflict, and a dreaded prison, the Castle Tower was a rock-hard stronghold in a lawless world. In this extraordinary program, join contractor Nick Mystrom as he travels to northern Idaho to erect a two-story medieval castle tower using the same methods employed by thirteenth-century masons. In the Middle Ages, great castles were built for barons, lords, and kings by thousands of craftsmen and laborers, with some projects lasting over four years. However, Nick, master builder Roger DeClements, and their team have just under three weeks to turn stone, wood, and a bit of steel into a 25-foot tower. Will Nick be able to relax and gaze upon the stars from atop the tower before reveal day? Will the Idaho weather cooperate? And what will the new owners think of Nick and Roger's creation? from the difficulty of working at a remote site to the challenge of erecting a massive tower without the use of modern-day scaffolding, Castle Tower highlights the ingenuity of medieval builders and those who strive to re-create their magnificent work today.
