Transcript of Castles
-Magonels were a type of catapult made of wood loaded with rocks.
-Trebucets are the same use as a missile launcher launcher
-Works by putting weights on one end and projectiles on the other
-tied by ropes, when cut, the projectiles are launched.
-Castles began to build in England after the Norman Conquest
-nobles, royals and important people in general lived there
-first castles were built with mud and wood = made the castle quite weak, as wood burns easily.
