Noble Friends,

Today the BBC is offering a brief video (no sound, at least after the 
mandatory commercial) of Criccieth Castle, Wales. The video includes 
drone footage of the current ruins, and a computer simulation of how the 
castle would have looked in the 1200s. Note the trebuchet atop one of 
the main towers:

Wikipedia offers a brief history of Criccieth Castle at 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criccieth_Castle . Apparently the 
trebuchet was an English addition. Doesn't matter. Trebuchets are always 
cool, unless you're on the receiving end.

Yours Aye,

Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge
