Arms and Men: The Trebuchet | HistoryNet
A brief and easy history of the catapult.
Unfortunately, the shaduf does not meet all of the requirements of a catapult. Specifically, it was not designed with the intent of hurling stuff. So, while it may be a predecessor to the trebuchet, it isn’t a catapult. It is still pretty cool, though.

A SHORT HISTORY OF WEAPONS - Local Histories
Another Medieval siege weapon was called a trebuchet, which worked by counterweight. A trebuchet had an arm set on a pivot so it had a long and a short end. The long end held the missile and a heavy weight was attached to the short end. The long end was winched down and when it was released the weight at the short end swung down. The long end swung up firing the missile. (However the defenders could also use engines to hurl missiles back into the attacker's camp).
