Mini Trebuchet

Mini Trebuchet


This perfectly tuned miniature trebuchet is a beautiful addition to any desktop, and it really works! It takes up only 4″ x 9″ of desktop space and stands just 14″ tall (7″ at the axle).

The trebuchet was the ultimate artillery weapon of the medieval period and early renaissance. A large and unwieldy weapon, it was typically built on-site during battle, and tuned to lob great weights – such as the carcasses of rotting horses and pots of burning pitch, over the castle walls and onto its inhabitants.
