27 September 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm BST
In 1901, Greek divers made the astounding discovery of a Roman-era shipwreck off the island of Antikythera in the Aegean Sea. Amongst other treasure, dives revealed lumps of bronze which were pieces of an ancient Greek ‘computer’ approximately 2,000 years old. This is now known as the Antikythera mechanism, and is depicted in the latest Indiana Jones adventure movie as The Dial of Destiny.
