Scaling ladders

Postby Alex Nordin » 26 Jan 2010, 21:59

Im preparing for a small siege battle that we will have in Lund this year, and i am sareching for pictures and findings of both scaling ladders and more ordinary everyday use ladders. I have seen originals of both the ordinary plank-ladder with just steps nailed to some 2" by 4" and the more advanced ones ones with the steps being inserted into holes in the planks and the being wedged in place (Like the head of an axe)

Anyone else got pictures of ladders? Or perhaps some manuscript pictures with constructional details? The first one who brings me pictures of a different ladder that i havent seen yet will receive ice-cream as reward when we meet ;)

Mvh
Alex

i did a bit of research into this a while back but most of the images i came across were 15th c or later.
i do have a couple though, one from the Maciejowski bible which depicts the steps being inserted to the uprights by dowels or pegs, sort of like you mentioned. (yeah i know its early - but better early than late right?!)

http://www.insecula.com/oeuvre/O0007743.html - this is a mirror case depicting siege of the house of love -the ladder is unusual and looks almost rope like

It does indeed look like a ropeladder, bit its kinda strange since it doenst hang from the tower but leans against it. Excellent pics though, icecream for you.

Det blir inga mail till dig...

De finns nämligen inte i elektronisk form, dessutom måste det ju finnas något skäl till att locka hit personer?
