Episode

This former medieval stronghold in Franche-Comté has suffered a good number of invasions.

The region was annexed by the Franks in 534 after the death of Charlemagne and was subsequently re-aligned with the German Holy Roman Empire, the Kingdom of France, and the Duchy of Burgundy…It was only in 1678 that Franche-Comté became French, and Pesmes along with it. The forges were built in the late 17th century and provided a key activity here until they were closed in 1993. The villagers today are trying to give them a new lease of life…
