The Ancient Greeks were the most amazing engineers - and their technology reveals a lot about contemporary society. Among other 'wonders', we will look at their metallurgy, the Samos tunnel, the Trireme, the Antikythera mechanism, the mathematician and engineer Hero of Alexandria... Perhaps they were just as fascinated by their technological innovations as we are. (Not to be taken with B27 in ISP Term II.)
