I would send back a science book written in anchient greek. The book would include chemistry, biology, physics, Astronomy, Earth Sciences, Botany, and
During this time period, 3000 years ago, 991bc, Ancient Greek culture was was in their "Geometric period". The 8th century BC was the time of homer
and his Iliad and the Odyssey. It was also around the 9th century BC that they developed their alphabet. They were also in the bronze age of their
culture, with most objects, statuettes, jewelry, and weapons, found by archaeologists being of the bronze variety.
It was also in the 7th century BC, only 200 years later, that they created the Olympic games.
Sokrates and Plato show up on the scene around 400BC, so about 500 years later. Hopefully my book survives long enough to fall into their hands at the
Academy at Athens, which was founded by Plato circa 380BC.
I think a science book like this would advance human kind by centuries. Perhaps humankind would be actively exploring the universe by now.
