When you see ancient mechanisms, it’s hard not to doubt, “How did they do it?” Looking at our own store, you will find how many things are purchased from suppliers who benefit from the latest Automatic machinery, computer control and clean and safe electricity. Not to mention high-tech products like electronics, these are ancient master craftsmen for centuries to come.
However, they built it. It is true that not every artifact is as complicated as the Antikythera mechanism, but this ancient astronomical computer still exists, and it must come from someone’s workshop. What is that place like?That is problem [Chris], Aka [Clickspring], Start to answer In his new video.
Like any good academician, he relies on the evidence locked in the device itself to provide clues about how it was produced and make educated guesses about the contents of the store (or store) where it was made. For example, complex work requires adequate lighting, so the store may be at least partly open. There must be a heat source to process the original brass and bronze materials. There must be a workbench, a storage warehouse, and possibly a place for the apprentice to turn his hands into simple tasks under the watch of the master. In short, it may be recognized by our eyes and may become an ergonomic efficiency model.
[Chris] We kindly let us take a sneak peek and obtained the exclusive broadcasting rights a few hours before it was broadcast to the public. We are very grateful for that. We are really looking forward to more Antikythera builds and can’t wait to see the finished product.
