Summary
In 213 BC in the city state of Syracuse, a genius named Archimedes lived. When the Romans tried to invade Syracuse, Archimedes’ inventions were used to defeat the Romans…for a time at least.
When the Roman fleet approached Syracuse, legend says that Archimedes was able to set fire to the fleet using large mirrors (bronze shields) to direct concentrated light towards the ships.
This two-part documentary demonstrates some of Archimedes’ inventions, and shows that they could have worked (as for example the mirrors destroying the Roman fleet.) The pressure of war forced the Greeks to be inventive. They were at the cutting edge of military technology. And Archimedes led the entire crop with his inventions.
