  • The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    Radiographs The digital radiographs of all the known remaining fragments of the Antikythera Mechanism that were acquired by X Tek Systems using their BladeRunner System are available for viewing and download on the website of Shaw Inspection Systems formerly X Tek Industrial The digital radiographs available include all the Main Fragments fragments A to G and the all the Small Fragments fragments 1 to 75 and were obtained using X Tek s BladeRunner CT system Read more Full resolution PTM The surfaces of the 82 remaining fragments of the Antikythera Mechanism imaged by the HP Labs team are available for download at the HP Labs download page 82 PTMs are listed this number being a coincidence since some small fragments are grouped into a single PTM and the larger fragments are imaged on more than one PTM per fragment You will have to download the PTM viewer available on the same page to browse the data on your computer Read more Solid Models of the Antikythera Mechanism The first model of the Antikythera Mechanism was actually build in the 1930s by Ioannis Theofanides A model based on Derek Price s work was built in the 1980s by Robert Deroski and donated by Price to the National Archaeological Museum in Athens In Australia clockmaker Frank Percival made a model based on the research done by Allan Bromley and Michael Wright who subsequently developed his own model With the new results and the latest gearing diagram from the Antikythera Mechanism Research Project new models are being built by other researchers with some being working models The results of the AMRP have been integrated into at least three models made by Michael Wright Dionysios Kriaris Massimo Vicentini and Tatjana van Vark while the Research Group is developing a model based on the ongoing

  • Project Overview | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    the National Archaeological Museum in Athens which is custodian of this unique artefact Two of the Museum s senior staff Head of Chemistry Eleni Magou and Archaeologist museologist Mary Zafeiropoulou have co ordinated the Museum s side of the project and are actively involved with the research One UK and two Greek universities are the core of the academic research group the astronomer Mike Edmunds and the mathematician and filmmaker Tony Freeth University of Cardiff the astronomer John Seiradakis University of Thessalonica the astronomer Xenophon Moussas and the physicist and historian of science Yanis Bitsakis University of Athens And last but not least the philologist and palaeographer Agamemnon Tselikas NBG Cultural Foundation During the first data gathering phase in the autumn of 2005 the most innovative technologies were used to reveal unknown elements of the mechanism This research was carried out by two world class high technology companies Hewlett Packard US and X Tek Systems UK X Tek s superb three dimensional x rays were imaged using software from the leading German company Volume Graphics Technical support was also provided by the University of Keele UK The whole process was filmed by Tony Freeth s Film and Television production company Images First for the TV documentary The World s First Computer During September 2005 three specialized scientists from Hewlett Packard s Mobile and Media Systems Laboratory came to Athens with their innovative digital imaging system to examine the surface inscriptions and other features on the Antikythera Mechanism The HP team Tom Malzbender Dan Gelb and Bill Ambrisco brought with them a remarkable piece of specialist equipment a Dome that surrounds the sample under examination and takes a series of still photos to analyze the three dimensional structure of the surface This enables astonishingly detailed examination of fine details such as faded and worn inscriptions It has been a revelation for the research team See here for this data During October 2005 another team of specialists from the cutting edge company X Tek Systems came to Athens Led by the company s pioneering proprietor Roger Hadland the group of experts consisted of David Bate Andrew Ramsey Martin Allen Alan Crawley and Peter Hockley Their aim was to use the very latest x ray technology to look at the internal structure of the mechanism with its complex and confusing gear trains With them they brought the prototype of a very powerful new x ray machine the eight tonne Bladerunner Originally designed to search for minute cracks in turbine blades this machine gives astonishingly detailed three dimensional x rays using the latest microfocus x ray techniques It has opened a remarkable window on microscopic internal details of inscriptions and gearing at a resolution better than a tenth of a millimeter Inscriptions can now be read that have not been seen for more than two thousand years and this is helping to build a comprehensive picture of the functions of the Antikythera Mechanism Browse here some of the initial images from the Blade Runner

  • The Team | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    astrophysicist Xenophon Moussas University of Athens Greece the physicist and historian of science Yanis Bitsakis University of Athens Greece and the philologist and palaeographer Agamemnon Tselikas National Bank of Greece Cultural Foundation The academic team worked closely with the team from the National Archaeological Museum the chemist Dr Eleni Magou the archeologist museologist Mary Zafeiropoulou with a number of conservators led by Gerassimos Makris The Scientific and Technical Collaborators were the Hewlett Packard Team and the X Tek Team After the first results were published in 2006 the AMRP began an important collaboration with Alexander Jones Institute for the Study of the Ancient World New York USA and John Steele Brown University USA In 2007 a PhD was established at the University of Thessaloniki The PhD student Magdalini Anastasiou is supervised by John Seiradakis Kyriakos Efstathiou and Stella Drougou The team is assisted by a number of students and technicians The results of the AMRP have already aided further research and interpretation and attracted the attention of scholars in such fields as epigraphy and ancient calendars ancient science and technology and more generally in the Hellenistic period of the ancient Greek world AMRP collaborators include Maria Papathanasiou University of Athens

  • The Data | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    data 1000 Gigabytes has been collected and processed The data consists of Digital photographs Surface imaging PTMs X rays 2D and 3D Two data sets are available online The full resolution PTMs at the HP Labs download page 82 PTMs are available from the 82 remaining fragments of the Mechanism the number of PTMs 82 is a coincidence since some small fragments are grouped into a single PTM and the larger fragments are imaged on more than one PTM per fragment You can also browse a beautiful interactive relighting of the Mechanism here The Digital Radiographs of all the known remaining fragments of the Antikythera Mechanism acquired by X Tek Systems with the BladeRunner System are available for viewing and download on the website of Shaw Inspection Systems formerly X Tek Industrial Extensive data from Computed Tomography CT can not be released online at this time since the data sets are much too large Researchers interested in accessing the CT data should contact the Antikythera Mechanism Research Project Some partial results can be browsed online Images from the data gathering phase the people and the Mechanism CT slices animations etc Presentations in Athens May 30 2006 Fragments Glyphs Inscriptions Gears

  • The Fragments | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    was done by Mary Zafeiropoulou in 2005 The fragments are described as A 1 for Fragment A Side 1 For the major fragments A B C this corresponds with Rediadis Svoronos 1903 and Price s A1 etc see Price 1974 where 1 refers to one face and 2 to the other We do not in general yet know which face was facing outside and which inside the device Indeed some
