    Just back from Israel.  In Acre, an early sea port in Northern Israel the crusaders had an impressive fort.  Archaeologists found these early projectiles.  Catapult wall busters.  They looked approx. 200 lbs., 20in.

      I beg to disagree……have to calculate the RPM of the catapult arm to know the distance to the wall you want to hit…….Just kidding….wow, them are “balls”……
