The forked stick-and-rubber band slingshot wouldn't be period,
because they didn't develop rubber bands until much later (first
patented in 1845.) But a David-and-Goliath style sling would
certainly be period (and I've seen them in use occasionally at SCA events.)
On the other hand, torsion-style catapults are, essentially,
slingshots, so that option would be viable.
