Today on Far Future Horizons we present another exciting episode of the acclaimed History Channel documentary series Ancient Discoveries that investigates the ancient super ballistics technology of the ancients.
Since the first time a rock was thrown in anger, mankind has endeavoured to deliver larger, deadlier payloads further and faster.
From mega-catapults that destroyed cities to rocket launch systems that could fire a hundred rounds per second to anti-personnel machines that pierced armour and shields, ballistic weapons technology first made its appearance on the bloody battlefields of the ancient world.
This History Channel documentary reveals how the science and technology of ballistics, a seemingly modern, cutting edge technology actually dates back thousands of years to the ancient world. Using state of the art forensic techniques and the world's leading firearms experts, this groundbreaking instalment of Ancient Discoveries reveals the accuracy, power and range of ancient bullets, rockets and bombs.
