Lost technologies! Greek fire, Damascus steel, the pyramid building abilities of ancient Egypt, India's flying vimanas, Rome's miracle medicine, the Antikythera Mechanism and so much more. We look into various claims of ancient technologies lost to time. Did they exist in the first place? Were they in any way superior to modern equivalents? A lot of historical mysteries explored on a Timesuck that bounces all over the place and was a blast to research and record. Hail Nimrod!
