Just watched Ancient Death Machines on the History Channel's Ancient Discoveries series. They did some experimenting on creating Greek fire grenades and a flamethrower that would shoot Greek fire a great distance. It was quite impressive. :) They also tested a model of a Chinese mine, a scythed chariot, and the most impressive-looking siege engine of all - which means it really wasn't that effective in practice because it was too big to move quickly - the Helepolis.
