Siege weapons have been used in War Reenactments hosted by the SCA (Society of Anachronism) since Pennsic, another SCA event, of 1998. With growing interest, more and more siege engines have appeared on the field of battle each year! Our local community is home to two Ballistas: “The Dragon’s Wing” and its younger brother “Robert the Destroyer”.
This year we will be using Ballistas in our war reenactment scenarios to give you the idea of the power and distance these machines have!
