  • The Nature articles (2006) | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    of the second century BC was unexpectedly sophisticated a study in this week s Nature suggests Mike G Edmunds and colleagues used imaging and high resolution X ray tomography to study fragments of the Antikythera Mechanism a bronze mechanical analog computer thought to calculate astronomical positions The Greek device contains a complicated arrangement of at least 30 precision hand cut bronze gears housed inside a wooden case covered in inscriptions But the device is fragmented so its specific functions have remained controversial The team were able to reconstruct the gear function and double the number of deciphered inscriptions on the computer s casing The device they say is technically more complex than any known device for at least a millennium afterwards The text is astronomical with many numbers that could be related to planetary motions and the gears are a mechanical representation of a second century theory that explained the irregularities of the Moon s motion across the sky caused by its elliptical orbit CONTACT Mike G Edmunds Cardiff University UK You can download here the submitted version of the article and the Supplementary Notes Read more on Nature s Website here and here Bookmark Search this post with Google

  • The Antikythera Shipwreck: the Ship , the Treasures, the Mechanism | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    releases and state documents from all the periods involved 2nd Section The ship its capacity and its crew Fragments from the hull of the ship and its external lead sheathing with various other accessories such as tubes for water drainage sounding weights for determining the depth of water and the topography of the sea bottom are displayed in this section The remains of the ship and its cargo show that the vessel was a freighter in ancient Greek ὀλκὰς olkas in Latin navis oneraria with estimated capacity of 300 tons Objects used by the people on board e g vases and games offer a picture of the habits and life during travel 3rd Section The ship s voyage and her cargo What kind of goods was being transported by the freighter Where did it start its journey Where was it heading for The bronze and marble statues the glassware the bronze vessels and the golden jewellery represent only a part of the cargo whose remainder still lies on the bottom of the sea possibly located at deeper levels These works bear witness to the aesthetic tastes of those who ordered them or of potential buyers but above all reflect the then novel practice in the history of western civilization of trading in artworks The study of the cargo greatly contributes to our understanding of maritime trade and the circulation of works of Greek art at the end of the Hellenistic period and the Roman Republic in the light of the commercial exchanges and the taste of the rising Roman aristocracy 4th Section The Mechanism One third of the exhibition is dedicated to this exquisite unique device of mathematical and astronomical genius which has created worldwide interest All 82 surviving fragments including the three best known large pieces will be displayed
