10th Century Roman Seige Tower
Mantua's range of period weapon kits all feature quality hardwood, complete with brass, metal and wood fittings. The wood is all laser cut for accurate assembly and the manual is clear and detailed with comprehensive illustrations. The kits are supplied with a wooden display base complete with a brass engraved nameplate. They make excellent display pieces and with some 18 models currently in the range there is surely something to interest everyone.
These towers were built during the age of the Roman empire. An original tower, reconstructed from Roman documents, is shown at the Museum of Civiltà Romana at Rome Eur. The kit contains all cut-to-size wooden pieces and cast metal ram's head.
