The Antikythera Mechanism

Arthur C. Clarke (1917-2008), author of 2001: A Space Odyssey, called it “one of the greatest basic mechanical inventions of all time.” (1).You may miss it altogether unless you ask to see “the mechanism.”  Although it’s on the ground floor of the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, Greece, you can easily get caught up in the fascinating displays of pottery, statuary, and (my favorite) medical instruments and completely miss the darkened room in the back dedicated to an ancient astronomical calculator known as the Antikythera mechanism. 650 more words

I Racconti dell'Archeologo

Come accennato nel precedente articolo, dopo avere letto tutti i libri di Peter Kolosimo ed essermi appassionato alle avventure di Martin MYstere, e dopo essermi laureato in Archeologia, ho voluto cimentarmi anch’io nel genere fanta-archeologico, inserendo però elementi storici reali e descrivendo le vere tecniche scientifiche usate dagli archeologi. 2,147 more words
