Leo, had the same topic weeks ago about horses: how many miles they could travel in a day... I searched through the answers and found a lot of it useful for my novel. But, also, I ask: How many miles can a old galleon/trireme travel in a day. I've tried Google but got varied results. I was wondering if anyone could clear it up. How many miles can a wooden ship with sails or oars travel in a day? The day is good for sailing : a good breeze and easy waves and the ship has a basic crew. Also, I was wondering how far an army in formation can travel in a day? (the terrain is fields and the army is lightly armored.) If anyone could answer any of these questions or give me links that helped them , it would be greatly appreciated. This is to help me make a map of my characters journeys. I need to make sure that it's as realistic as possible.
