is a Trebuchet ? How does a Trebuchet work ?
Centuries before the practical use of gunpowder, ancient armies employed
handmade artillery against castles and fortifications using enormous throwing
machines powered by humans , twisted cord , bent wood and metal, or gravity
Ingenious and varied in their design , these great siege machines, or
siege engines, hurled large stone balls and flaming tar to breach castle
walls and set fire to interior buildings.
The trebuchet , or Trebuket , as it is sometimes known,
is a direct descendant of the simple sling , or what is commonly known
as a slingshot . Introduced into siege warfare during the twelfth century,
the trebuchet , powered by gravity alone, was the most effective siege
weapon of its time.
Now you can own scale, working models of these infamous, gravity powered
medieval trebuchets. All of our assembled trebuchets and trebuchet
kits are individually handcrafted from fine, cabinet grade oak and include
illustrated instructions and projectiles.
Our trebuchet, catapult and siege engine plans feature measured drawings
and dimensions for all parts as well as clearly detailed and easy step-by-step
assembly and operating instructions. All our plans use common, locally
available and affordable materials.
