The types and known history of the trebuchet are explored along with an overview of the device's mechanics. Construction techniques of the medieval period pertaining to the trebuchet are then considered. A trebuchet design is then presented with an explanation of the design's authenticity. The design is then constructed into a full size trebuchet. Finally the documentation of the actual construction and assembly process is established.
