Roman warships were fearsome weapons and a major factor
in the expansion of the Roman Empire. The ships were
powered by sails and oars, and armed with the spears and
swords of the soldiers on board. Protection was provided
by many removable shields along the sides of the craft.
A unique "proboscus" on the front of the ship was a reinforced
ram often used to spear enemy ships. Whent an
enemy ship remained skewered to the Roman ship, the
soldiers leap aboard and engage in hand-to-hand combat.
