The cat and the mantelets remained in the bailey as well as the trebuchets.
It is claimed that trebuchets were often built large enough to hurl carcasses of horses into an enemy's fortifications.
The fantastic arms of the mangonels and trebuchets, and other slinging instruments rose grimly above the battlements.
The trebuchets were mounted within this palisading, forming an interior retrenchment.
Towards daybreak the baron had caused two trebuchets remaining within the palisade to be dismounted with all speed.
