Bill Wilson provides photos of the building process, detailed and updated plans, plus construction information on ballistas, onagers and trebuchets. You will aso find information on catapult web sites and how to be included in some of the catapult contests around the country. Also included is some interesting catapult history, as well as discussion of its strength and weakness as a weapon, and what it was that led to its demise as a functional war machine. There's no question that warriors have found more efficient means of lobbing projectiles at enemies, real and imagined, but has it ever been as much fun?
Bill Wilson grew up near Atlanta, Georgia, and has spent most of his adult life avoiding things that would limit his freedom, such as credit, relationships and responsibilities. He has, however, nurtured a passion for writing, and describes himself as "a happy bohemian, slightly insane but completely harmless."
