The Trebuchet was a weapon used during siege warfare during the Medieval period and was similar to a catapult.  It was used for hurling heavy stones to smash castle or city walls.  It was also used to fire barrels of burning tar.  Sophie's family wisely used tennis balls to test their trebuchet!  I am told it fires them a long distance!  Sophie has earned herself 4 very well-deserved extra stars for her efforts.
