PBS's Nova "Medieval Siege"

I saw Nova's Medieval Siege show last night. This was very interesting. An American and a Frenchman led in the construction of two different medieval trebuchets and launched them against a replica castle wall. The resulting damage from a single hit was quite impressive, with both designs punching holes through five feet of solid stone and mortar wall with a single blow. Definitely watch this if you get a chance.
