      ... before relinquishing ownership in the 20th century. The finished chateau is very impressive - it is absolutely huge and has amazing views over the surrounding countryside. It also has a chapel with floors on two levels - the first one for the Lords is on street level, and the other level for the villagers is below the ground, down a very steep staircase. Apparently the Lords though they should be closer to God than the villagers ...

      In movies, cavemen are those big, hairy guys who live in caves and say Grrrr. Yeah, that creates an exciting movie but, it's not real. People never lived in caves.
