Faithful and accurate Reconstruction of the Ancient Roman Legionary Siege Tower [Model as described in Ancient Roman Military Handbook De Re Militari by Vegetius], according to the Scientific Data and the Archaeological Evidence.

The Roman standard Siege Tower had 3 sections: the lower level with a batterig ram, the intermediate level with room for soldiers and drawbridge device and an upper level for archers and missile troops.

As usual [see Vitruvius' and Vegetius' books], the tower was entirely covered with a mattress of cattle raw skin or with unfinished leather sacks stuffed with fire-proof materials or with materials treated to be fire-proof. These sacks and mattresses made the Siege Tower sufficiently fire-proof during attack, also because a group of soldier in the tower was always trained to extinguish fire using special leather water sacks [the siphones].

The head of the Greek and Roman Battering Ram usually had the ram snout in frontal position not the ram top-head [see the Olympia Ram Head, the Trajan's Colum Ram Head].

The Battering Ram Siege Tower probably appeared for the first time during the Empire of Augustus or Tiberius [first half 1st century AD] and was largely used during the wars of the end of the 1st century AD.

The Roman towers used before that date [i.e. Julius Caesar] probably were without incorporated battering ram but always with the heavy protective leather cover. So in the package you will find a second tower without Battering ram, to be used for reconstruction works about the era before Augustus' Empire.
