    Antikythera mechanism
    From: Jackson McDonald

    Today I had an opportunity to see the Antikythera mechanism at the National 
    Archeological Museum in Athens.  It is an astounding analogue computer dating 
    back about 2000 years.  It is far more technically sophisticated than 
    archeologists thought possible for that period. 
    
    Here is a link to a Wikipedia article:

    There are also several documentaries (of varying quality) about the 
    Antikythera mechanism on YouTube describing how it was recovered from an 
    ancient shipwreck and how scientists struggled for decades to understand is 
    purpose and internal workings.  
    
    Fascinating stuff!
