The Link: Greek Fire
The Byzantine Navy used pumps to project Greek fire at enemy ships.
There is a very good book that has been recently published on this issue. It' s by the Byzantinologist Konstantinos Karatolios and it 's called "Greek Fire and its contribution to Byzantine might"
Does anyone know the basic ingredients that were used in this movie? I'm writing a term paper for my class and would love to do a little experimenting of my own.
100 potassium nitrate
100 of charcoal powder
mix in a beaker with a flammable liquid AND maybe try something like tar. this will not be what they used in the video but will still work.
