I saw this special on History channel about the advancements of ancient civilizations. No one yet has been able to copy damascus steel which is known to have the most perfect molecular structure of all steel. And the greek computer made by archimedes that was found underwater. It uses an intricate set of gears to track the stars and planets. Anyone got more info?
