Secret communal bread ovens during the French Revolution
One young builder, called "Jacques le Croquant" was captured and killed a couple months before the French Revolution ended in 1794. In 2007 a French movie Jacques le Croquant was released on the subject.
The photo, and many others may be viewed HERE Walking Dordogne has a six hour hike, “In the footsteps of Jacques le Croquant” to five original illegal ovens and other sites, including a Templar Hospital ruin, caves, and more.
Does anyone know more about these fascinating ovens?
