Today on Far Future Horizons we present the final episode of Terry Jones’ acclaimed documentary series Ancient Inventions.
Julius Caesar never used a mobile phone, Socrates never consulted a digital watch, and Alexander the Great never flushed the lavatory. But that doesn’t mean they were stupid. Archaeologists tell us the human brain is the same size now as it was 60,000 years ago, and our ancestors were every bit as intelligent as we are today, so we shouldn’t assume that the scientists and inventors of the past have nothing to teach us. In fact, when it comes to weapon’s technology – well, none of it is as new as we think it is. Guided missiles, flame-throwers, chemical weapons, tanks, even the theory of the atom bomb – they’re all ancient inventions.
Ancient inventions, hosted by Terry Jones, is available on DVD through Amazon.com.
