Where would Steampunk be without tech? Steve A. Wiggins, PhD, historian of ancient religions, will offer a presentation looking at ancient technology. Beginning with the Antikythera Mechanism, a 2000-year-old gear-box found in 1901, he will take the audience through several strange pieces of technology at appeared before their time. The Baghdad Battery, the ancient Egyptian lightbulb, and several other examples of ancient tech will be explored.
