  • Is the Antikythera Mechanism a fake? | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    remaining fragments it is very clear that the mechanism has been under the sea for a very long time Further evidence that it is not a fake is literally emerging from inside the mechanism itself Much more evidence of the purpose and function of the mechanism has been revealed by the recently acquired CT data This includes detailed inscriptions which would have been almost impossible to fake Bookmark Search this

  • Is it existence evidence of time travel? | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    mechanism of its kind that we know about there is written evidence of similar but not the same mechanisms existing at the same time and more importantly references to their makers Furthermore the Mechanism fits within a very long historical astronomical context and perhaps represents the climax of ancient Greek astronomy Bookmark Search this post with Google Plus One Pinterest Login or register to post comments Tags General questions Rate

  • How was it found? | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    This recovery is thought to constitute the first underwater archaeology to be ever undertaken and is hardly surprising that these events have been somewhat romanticised in subsequent accounts Further reading and documents 1 2 1 The Antikythera Shipwreck Reconsidered Weinberg G D Grace V R Edwards G R Robinson H S Throckmorton P and Ralph E K Transactions of the American Philosophical Society Volume 55 Issue 3 p 46 1965

  • When was the ship wrecked? | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    When was the ship wrecked By Martin Allen Posted on 03 July 2007 The ship a Roman merchant ship of some 300 tons had sunk on a well used trade route from the Eastern to the Western Mediterranean The wreck and its contents are consistent with a date of 80 50 BC The famous Jacques Cousteau recovered Pergamese coins from about 86 67 BC which with Ephesian coins of 70 60 BC reinforces a view that this had been a treasure ship on its way to Rome including booty from Pergamon circa 84 BC after the First Mithradatic War A reasonable date for the wreck is thus 85 60 BC The ship itself is thought to built at least in part from much older timber 200 43 BC It has been speculated that the ship foundered because of its age and perhaps because it was overloaded with treasures including a number of particularly large statues Bookmark Search this post with Google Plus One Pinterest Login or register to post comments Tags General questions Rate This Select rating Poor Fair Good Very Good Excellent Your rating None Average 4 6 29 votes Tweets by antikytheradive Upgrade tasks Check upgrade status Update

  • What was it made of? | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    considering the advanced state of corrosion the Mechanism exhibits The frame plate all the gears shafts and fixings are made of bronze The Mechanism was originally housed in a wooden box which may not have been complete at the time of discovery Once the mechanism was removed from the sea this soon disintegrated and today only very few fragments of wood remain It is not certain what type of wood

  • Where was it made? | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    for the place of manufacture for the Mechanism However there is a growing consensus of opinion that the Mechanism was made on the Island of Rhodes Both Rhodes and Alexandria were perhaps the two major academic centres at the time in Europe Bookmark Search this post with Google Plus One Pinterest Login or register to post comments Tags General questions Rate This Select rating Poor Fair Good Very Good Excellent

  • Who made it? | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    was a Greek astronomer geographer and mathematician of the Hellenistic period Hipparchos was probably born in Nicaea now Iznik Turkey and probably died on the island of Rhodes He is known to have been a working astronomer at least from 147 BC to 127 BC Hipparchos is considered the greatest astronomical observer and by some the greatest overall astronomer of antiquity He was the first Greek to develop quantitative and accurate models for the motion of the Sun and Moon For this he made use of the observations and knowledge accumulated over centuries by the Ancient Babylonians Amongst the many works of Hipparchos is his development of a quantitative geometrical model for the first anomaly of the Moon s motion It has been recently shown by the Antikythera Mechanism Research Project that the Antikythera Mechanism includes an ingenious mechanical realization of this model Furthermore Hipparchos is credited with the invention or improvement of several astronomical instruments which were used for a long time for naked eye observations As such it is very tempting to associate Hipparchos as the maker of the Mechanism especially as he was contemporaneous with date of manufacture of the Mechanism 150 to 100 BC Bookmark Search
