Napoleonland

20 Jan

Today this one came to my attention… according to the Telegraph there are people in France planning to build a Napoleon theme park on the Monterau battlefield. Not really sure what to make of this. Usually I really appreciate it, if someone tries to bring history closer to people, but I am not sure if rollercoasters and waterrides are the right way to it. Especially when it is built on an old battlefield (even if it just a minor one), thus destroying anything that might be left of it.

At first I though (and hoped) that this might be a joke, but the story made several news agencies today, so it seems to be for real.
