  • Tony Freeth | The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project
    who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 During 2000 he was inspired by Mike Edmunds to research and develop a film project about the Antikythera Mechanism In doing this he realized that much of the classic academic work on the Mechanism is wrong This led to two research papers in Mediterranean Archaeology Archaeometry The first of these challenged the classic research on the Mechanism and proposed new investigations using the latest cutting edge technologies of microfocus X ray and digital imaging Mike Edmunds initiative on the Antikythera Mechanism led to the formation of a new research team that became known as the Antikythera Mechanism Research Project AMRP After a four year struggle the AMRP got permission to carry out the investigations that Tony Freeth had proposed In the autumn of 2005 Hewlett Packard USA took a team led by Tom Malzbender to carry out digital surface investigations of the Mechanism using Polynomial Texture Mapping PTM Another team from X Tek Systems UK led by Roger Hadland carried out microfocus X ray computed tomography CT on the fragments to get the crucial 3 D X ray information Together with his colleagues from the AMRP Tony Freeth has been analyzing this rich data set ever since The first results of this work were published in Nature in 2006 Freeth et al Decoding the ancient Greek astronomical calculator known as the Antikythera Mechanism The AMRP organized a conference in Athens in 2006 to coincide with this publication One aim of this conference was to extend the research team particularly in the area of the history of ancient astronomy where our expertise was lacking A collaboration with two distinguished historians of astronomy Professor Alexander Jones and Dr John M Steele was one very positive result A new paper in Nature was published on
