Gunpowder shares a zip code with Aberdeen Proving Ground, and the name is quite fitting because of all the military weapon testing done nearby. However, we’re not going to talk about the community in Harford County, Maryland today. Instead, we’ll be talking about the specifics of gunpowder, the chemical explosive used in firearms throughout history. Gunpowder was first developed in China by alchemists who were attempting to create an elixir to infinitely prolong life. While they didn’t achieve their ultimate goal, the did discover a product that would change the history of mankind, unfortunately ending many lives instead of prolonging them. The Chinese name for the substance was “huoyao,” which roughly translates to “fire medicine” in English. The medicinal aspects come from the attempted elixir. All of this occurred in the 9th century! By the 10th century, gunpowder was being used to revolutionize bow and arrow technology through the use of fire arrows. Eventually the development of weaponry such as guns and bombs occurred in China.
Eventually, growing nations and the Middle East acquired the product of gunpowder and the knowledge to make it, creating recipes and descriptions of the technology written in Arabic by a scholar named Hasan al-Rammah. This knowledge was clearly derived from Chinese culture and people, since the writing refers to “Chinese flowers” instead of fireworks and “Chinese arrows” instead of rockets. In the scholar’s first military guide book, he included about over 100 recipes for gunpowder and gunpowder-powered devices, like rockets. Gunpowder’s path to Europe was slow, but eventually it began to appear in the writings of Europeans around the 13th century, such as Roger Bacon (an Englishman).
