Hardtack, Romans had that too: 3 cups whole wheat flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon olive oil. Mix it all up adding water, a little at a time, to make a stiff dough.  Form it into flat rounds 4" wide on ungreased cookie sheets, poke some holes in them, and put in oven at 250 degrees for 2 hours. Break one in half--if it is hard and dry all the way through, it's done, but if not, give it another hour.

buccellatum, or Roman hardtack, a simple biscuit made of flour, salt, and water. It is rock hard, baked twice at low temperatures for a very long time to ensure no moisture is left inside. This makes it ideal for long campaigns, and it was served not only to Roman soldiers, but crusaders, sailors, and soldiers in the American Civil War.
