Greek Ballista

Greek Ballista

Generally, I followed Heron's Belopoeica and Philon's Belopoeica. However, those sources do not provide all the pieces of information needed to build an exact replica; they lack a detailed description of pedestal of euthytone, the dimensions of its trigger mechanism etc. Therefore, I constructed tho...

Mangonel (catapult) Test, May 30, 2010

Mangonel (catapult) Test, May 30, 2010

This mangonel was started on Victoria Day weekend 2010 and was completed on May 30th 2010. It was used as part of a display at Upper Canada Village during an event held on June 11, 12, and 13 2010. Most of the test firings were made using softballs, but the one here was using a five pound river rock...

How To Make A Torsion Catapult - Table Top Size Mangonel

How To Make A Torsion Catapult - Table Top Size Mangonel

This is a great little catapult that uses torsion from twisted rope or string. It is more accurate to the types of catapults used in the middle ages because they didn't have rubber bands back then but they did have rope. The rope can generate enormous force that is used to hurl a projectile. If you ...

Giant Hybrid Torsion Catapult

Giant Hybrid Torsion Catapult

Hybrid torsion catapult I made for a school project. Sorry about the wind noises but I can't really help that. This is one of the first shots we took, we were just guessing with the tension and angle of release. After some modifications I have it shooting close to 450 feet. Its a true thing of beaut...

Mangonel Siege Artillery - Battle Castle With Dan Snow

Mangonel Siege Artillery - Battle Castle With Dan Snow

Dan Snow tries out a working mangonel - a siege weapon that utilised rope under tension to fire shots up to 100 metres. Similar to a trebuchet or catapult, it launched rocks in the midst of battle to take down troops or damage medieval castles. Subscribe to Discovery TV for more clips from Battle Ca...

Ballista...

The ballista was first designed by the Greeks, who referred to it as oxybeles. The Romans then adopted the machine and referred to it as scorpio or catapulta. All of these were classified as torsion catapults and were often referred to simply as ballistae (singular, ballista)...

The ancient Greek Ballista first appears in historic literature in the 4th century b.c. and made very creative use of the newly invented Torsion Spring. (See siege engine mechanics for details.) The design of the ballista was such that it could be built in small to large sizes and could be configure...
