Battle Castle: Six mighty castles. Six epic sieges. Explore. Play. Go medieval.
Battle Castle host Dan Snow reveals details of trebuchet balls in the depths of Syria’s Crac des Chevaliers, the crown jewel of crusader castles. The castle was constructed by Christian knights in the 12th and 13th centuries, and faced attack by a Muslim force armed with trebuchets and led by the Mamluk Sultan Baybars in 1271. The secrets of this mighty castle’s build and details of the epic siege it faced are revealed in Battle Castle: Crac des Chevaliers.
Dan’s blogs will be released every Thursday on YouTube, unveiling details related to the stories that will be profiled in the Battle Castle shows .
