Normandy

.

The Poles are the vintagers in Normandy. The Norman vintage consists of apples beaten down by poles. The French say, “En Normandie lʹon vendange avec la gaule,” where gaule is a play on the word Gaul, but really means a pole.

The Gem of Normandy. Emma, daughter of Richard I. (*-1052.)
