Stilt walkers of Landes

The Aquitaine region of France is one of the areas in Europe that fascinate me (they have some really cool castles).

Discovered these folks from the Landes region of Aquitaine tonight -- before 19th century reclamation projects turned the moors into pine plantations, they raised sheep but needed stilts for the people to navigate the swamps.
