A talk on the Antikythera Mechanism by the astrophysicist Professor Xenophon Moussas, of the University of Athens.
The Mechanism is a unique monument of ancient Greek civilisation, universally considered one of the most significant of all archaeological finds on a global level.
Professor Moussas’ research provides sound evidence that the Greeks were developing high-level science and technology, based on a knowledge of the laws of physics much more advanced than is usually assumed by the international scientific community.
