Title Precursors of Technology #1
Description Precursors of Technology #1
.....Antikythera Mechanism - Dated to the early 1st Century BC, the antikythera mechanism is a ancient computer designed to calculate astronomical positions with a precision and accuracy thought unknown to the ancients. Found in the wreckage of a sunken ship, this mechanism was in 82 pieces and the bronze (shown right) was extremely corroded. The knowledge of this mechanism, and its function, was lost for over 1000 years. Only within the last decade has its true use, and unprecidented accuracy, been revealed. The Antikythera Mechaniam predated the "Brainiac Computer by thousands of years. Wheels on brads really turn as did the gears on the original mechanism.
