Gears from the Greeks

Mon, 8 Oct 2012

Back from my trip to Frankfurt, a parcel was waiting for me from Amazon. Inside was this fascinating looking booklet about the incredible Antikythera Mechanism, a gear based computer created by an Ancient Greek over 2000 years ago. The book looks great, the first few pages read well and it is packed with information and diagrams. I'll post a full review when I'm done but in the mean time you can order your own copy from  Amazon UK || Amazon US
