I would Love to Know the Place of Origin of the Antikythera Mechanism
It has Greek Writing on it ... Etched ... But were the Greeks the Original Holders !! of this Device ?
Now Here is a BIG BIG!!! Question !
If the Device is Accurate is a Navigational Astronomical Level .....
Ya think that they Were Able to Voyage to the New World!! as in North America South America ?
thinking in those Days People thought the World was Flat... a handful that didn't
Remember the Piri Reis Map !
Piri Reis map
