Back to Roman Military
- Roman artillery was made up of two main
tools, the bolt-shooting catapults, and the stone-throwing catapults.
- Bolt-Shooting catapults consisted of a
metal framework,which added an unobstructed view of the target, this artillery
peice was praised for its accuacy in destroying far away targets.
- The Stone-Throwing catapults had a great
advantage having an adjustable sling on the throwing arm of the catapult which
allowed it to hurl stones over obstacles, or bounce them along the ground
to take out the base of a structure.
