15th Century Rampart Crossbow

Our fully functional 15th Century Rampart Crossbow was used mainly to defend castle walls and turrets. The crossbow was once considered so violent a weapon, the Pope outlawed its use.The European Crossbow of the Middle Ages saved many a Castle from siege. Crossbows were originally brought to England by the Normans and soon became an important historical weapon. They were used for warfare and for hunting and widely employed in England through the time of Elizabeth. Large crossbows were more powerful than any longbow and unlike their light counterparts that were used in the field by armor clad soldiers, these giant crossbows were mainly used in the attack and defense of fortified places such as castles.
