The Way Back History of Fire Eating

An article by J. Tithonus Pednaud caught my eye. A post entitled “FIRE EATERS AND MANIPULATORS” on his Human Marvels blog. It’s a brief, lovingly written history on the art of fire eating. A wonderful read for any fire bug and I highly recommend it.

“The earliest record of fire eating dates back to 133 B.C.E. when a Syrian named Eunus lead a successful slave revolt while breathing out smoke, sparks and spikes of fire”
