Site where oldest computer lay for thousands of years may yield other treasures and even another Antikythera mechanism...
In 1900, Greek sponge divers stumbled across "a pile of dead, naked women" on the seabed near the tiny island of Antikythera. It turned out the figures were not corpses but bronze and marble statues, part of a cargo of stolen Greek treasure that was lost when the Roman ship carrying them sank two thousand years ago on the island's treacherous rocks.
What they had found was amazing.... a whole wreck stuffed with goods from across the Empire and a remarkable early 'computer'
Now divers are returning to the site.
It has taken scientists over a hundred years to decode the inner workings of those corroded fragments, with x-ray and CT scans finally revealing a sophisticated clockwork machine used to calculate the workings of the heavens
