“Ancient Greece – the origins of Technologies”
The Hi-Tech inventions then and now! Visitors have the chance to meet over 100 fully functional reconstructions of ancient Greek inventions, accompanied by rich audio-visual material, from the robot – servant of Philon to the cinema of Heron and from the automatic clock of Ktesibios to the analog computer of Antikythera. Each exhibit is a stimulus to relate technology and science and their role to the everyday life of people diachronically.
The public is invited to discover and wonder around the revelation that the technology of the Ancient Greeks, just before the end of the Greek world, was shockingly similar to the beginning of our modern technology.
