The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch Has Been Discovered

Well, at least according to Fox News.

Crusade Grenade – Bane of Killer Rabbits

Recovered near Northern Israel, it is thought that the clay device would be filled with a flammable liquid such as alcohol and once a burning fuse was inserted would then be thrown at enemy ships.  These were used fairly commonly around the 11th century or so in Syria and elsewhere.

It sounds more like a Molotov Cocktail than an actual hand grenade.

No word of its effectiveness against killer rabbits.
