This was an excellent show and I watched the whole thing on Nova.

I highly recommend it.

I even use these types of weapons in my fiction writings, wargames, and role play games as forms of extremely valuable treasure.

THE TRUE HISTORY OF WIZARDS AND WITCHES

While researching English translations of the Fihrist by al-Nadim (because I wanted to see what books and works it listed by both ancient Greek and Roman authors and if it possibly listed now lost Byzantine works) I accidentally came across this absolutely fascinating book entitled The True History of Wizards and Witches.

I have only perused it so far but already it has some fascinating historical analysis and details which I am anxious to study in depth. I thought some of you might very well enjoy it and learn from it.
