catapult

trebuchet
The coun­ter­weight tre­buchet appeared in both Chris­tian and Muslim lands around the Mediter­ranean in the 12th century. It could fling pro­jec­tiles weighing up to 350 pounds (160 kg). The tre­buchet's tech­ni­cal con­struc­tions were lost at the be­gin­ning of the 16th century. In 1984, the French engineer Renaud Beffeyte made the first modern re­con­struc­tion of a tre­buchet, based on doc­u­ments from 1324.
