You think our modern world is cool, are we living in a world which knows it all ?? Maybe not, there so many things we need to learn form our ancestors. So we bring you a list of technologies for ancient world, which we cannot replicate even today !
1. Liquid Greek Fire

The fire was actually a liquid which was forced through tubes and could even burn water. It could only be extinguished using vinegar, sand or urine. The chemical formula of the fire is to date unknown.
2. Flexible Glass
There have been three different accounts where flexible glass has been utilized. There is no direct evidence but the first story of it’s invention was given out by Petronius in the ancient world. In the year 1437 a glassmaker was beheaded by the emperor Tiberius so that the formula for the flexible glass was not passed on.

This was an invention of the medieval times. The Damascus sword was made of Wootz steel in Asia. It was so strong and durable that a metal equivalent to it was not made until industrial revolution. What made it special was the use of nano technology to infuse chemical reaction and create effective substance combination. It was first made use of in the 300 B.C.
