The catapult is a device designed to launch projectiles over long distances primarily during siege warfare. The term is derived from the Greek word, katapultos or "shield piercer." In the Middle Ages, the catapult was a key weapon used against castles and walled cities. Anything from boulders, fireballs, garbage, or tainted animal carcasses were used as ammunition. Morgaine Le Fey's demon army used several catapults in the siege against Camelot. Although catapults were used in World War I's trench warfare, it was mostly replaced by the cannon in the 14th century.
