I have been fascinated with the Antikythera mechanism ever since I found out about it a few years ago.

The Antikythera mechanism an ancient analogue computer used to predict astronomical positions and eclipses for calendrical and astrological purposes.

Because modern historians believed that the Greeks were incapable of this much knowledge of celestial bodies movements.

Obviously, they were wrong.

I have believed for a long time now that our version of man’s history is not accurate. And in fact, we are not the first advanced civilization to inhabit this planet.

When the mechanism was found, it was encased in a lump of rust and sediment on the sea floor off the Greek island of Antikythera in 1901.

A company called Clickspring has taken on the challenge of rebuilding this ancient machine in a most beautiful way.
