Smorgasbord Blogger Daily 10th May 2017 – Paul Andruss, Olga Nunez Miret, Fiction is Food and Love Books Group

First post today is for Paul Andruss who shares the remarkable find in 1900 of an ancient analogue computer from 250BC. We think of Romans and their Empire as being invaders who gave us straight roads and built villas with central heating.. but the mechanics involved in some of their everyday operations were not to be utilised in our time for another 2000 years. Paul shares the evidence of both the Greek and Roman ingenuity…fascinating stuff.In 1900, off the coast of the Greek Isle of Antikythera, fishermen discovered a sunken wreck from Roman times lying 150 feet underwater. The recovery operation was ground breaking given the deep-sea diving equipment of the time. A modern underwater archaeologist described it as being like ‘drunks with coal scuttles on their heads, working in 5 minute shifts, in the dark.’

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
