Technology

The technology of Suwarnabumi is similar to the technological advancements in the Chinese Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD). Explosive bombs and devices called 'fire lances', a hollowed bamboo tube that fires sand particles, scraps of metal or lead pellets like a cannon, have begun to appear. However, bows and crossbows still remain standard issue amongst the armies of the time. Although printing technology exists, illiteracy is still prevalent. Literacy is banned in most societies, reserved for the wealthy and religious elite. Other technologies include the use of wind power, hydraulics, papermaking, suspension bridges, siegecrafts, drydocks and postal systems.
