We are used to thinking that ancient world was not as developed as our modern civilization. But is that actually true? They are as different from us as we are from the people that will be living on Earth in a thousand years. They had their own gods, belief systems, and yes, technologies as well. Some of the archaeological finds we make today reveal that thousands of years ago people were using mechanisms of incredible complexity. Some of them still baffle scientists as they can’t figure out what those gizmos were used for! Here’s a list of 10 ancient finds of unknown origin.
Behold the world’s oldest ‘gear’ machine. Found inside a shipwreck near Greece in 1900, this incredible mechanism reveals incredible workmanship of the ancient people. This machine is believed to be some kind of an ‘analog computer’ that was built to help perform various calculations and astronomical predictions. Historians still can’t figure out who was the engineer of this mechanism. They only know that it was probably built by a Greek astronomer around 3rd century B.C.
