When where siege towers built?
Asked in Roman Empire
What are facts about the roman siege tower?
The Roman siege towers could be on rollers to be mobile or they could be stationary. They were built taller than the walls of the city they were attacking, enabling the men inside to fire down upon the enemy. Often a battering ram was concealed inside a siege tower. Because they were made of wood, the siege towers were vulnerable to fire if the enemy shot incendiary arrows them. The Romans had to be on the alert for this.
