Summary
Get an up-close look at a reproduction of a trireme, or ancient Mediterranean warship. See the reproduction of the gigantic cargo ship Syracusia capturing the vessels' original grandeur. Witness a demonstration of the Archimedean screw, a machine designed in the third century B.C. to pump water out of a ship's hold, and watch as another one of Archimedes' discoveries, the principle of buoyancy, is put to the test. In England, investigate the Antikytheara mechanism, a type of celestial computer that tracked the movement of the sun, moon, Mars, Venus, Mercury, and a handful of stars
