Over 30 years ago the reconstruction of a late medieval trebuchet was the starting point for building a little danish market town around the year 1400 - Middelaldercentret Nykøbing. Through the years more houses followed and a second, bigger trebuchet was added. Today "Sundkøbing" is a lively little town inhabited by merchants and craftspeople and has become very dear to us.
Sadly the older trebuchet was strongly affected by the ravages of time and had to be taken down.
As the trebuchets have become a trade mark and main attraction for the Middelaldercentret, the museum has build a new one. To support the enormous costs, a crowdfunding campain was launched on INDIEGOGO - Medieval trebuchet, which we supported with our share.
