Catapult Yourself Into the Chaos of Medieval Battle

The Scots inside Stirling Castle must have felt untouchable. Protected by a massive stone fortress, they prepared for a long drawn-out siege against the army of England's Edward the First. But Edward had 50 carpenters working day and night to create the medieval version of the atom bomb: the trebuchet - a fearsome, gravity-powered catapult dubbed "Warwolf" that was capable of hurling boulders, bee hives and plague infested corpses long distances. Travel back to the Middle Ages and relive a fascinating turning point in warfare and medieval history

  • Enter the battlefield and experience the chaos of medieval warfare - 200 years before the invention of the cannon
  • Discover how the mechanized catapult sent English history and warfare in new directions
