windmills Pictures of Penn State windmill reconstruction

As part of a course at Penn State University, a number of students researched and designed a medieval post mill. The objective was to construct an approximately half size mill, which would be ready for the Medieval Mill conference that the university hosted in April 2004.

A good series of pictures showing the reconstruction are now on the project site. These show the reconstructed buck, and windshaft assembly. The mill trestle construction is planned for this autumn.
