Summary
Much of our modern weaponry has its roots in the ancient world. This film explores the world of ancient warfare and the weapons used. The Greek fire was a forerunner to today's flamethrower, the Roman ballista may have been the first missile, and siege towers evolved into modern day tanks. For all our technological advances, the weapons used to wage war really haven't changed all that much?
