Our overall winner in the trebuchet category was Logan, whose sling design was very effective in getting both height and distance. Castle walls stand no chance against a weapon like this!
Some epic ballistas were made also - though to be fair, they were more of a Roman invention than a medieval one! Ethan was the winner in this category, with a sensational shot that covered the entire width of the school field. His use of levers on his trigger mechanism was very impressive.
Here are some pictures of the afternoon's action. It was great having visitors from Cust Preschool come and share in our learning also.
