Ancient Greek Technology Exhibit
We are pleased to inform you that the Center for Hellenic Studies "Paideia" at the main campus of the University of Connecticut is hosting the Ancient Greek Technology exhibit from the Kostas Katsanas Museum in Greece.
Come along on a guided and virtual tour of an exceptional selection of 50 amazing inventions of the ancient Greeks (from the robot - servant of Philon to the "cinema" of Heron and from the hydraulic clock of Archimedes to the analog computer of Antikythera) covering the period from 2000 B.C. up to the end of the ancient Greek world.
Discover that the technology of the ancient Greeks, just before the end of the ancient world, was shockingly similar to the beginning of our modern technology. Explore this era when ownership for cutting edge technology was not claimed and become aware of how much (more than we think) the Western Civilisation owes to Greeks. Only after a millennium of maturation was humanity able to "recover" this remarkable forgotten technology.
Group tours will be given on Sundays following the Liturgy to interested parties with prior reservations. Please call our office at 860-429-8518 for more information.
