Greece, because of its bas-relief and its geographical position, is predominanly naval country. For this reason, Greek people regarded Poseidon, the god of the sea, as an horonable divinity. They ranked him second most imporant god after Zeus, the powerful god of the whole universe. Ancient Greek assembled everything that could help them in developing their civilization.
They had been 'emperors of the oceans' and this constant relationship with the sea helped them to accumulate wealth, draw knowledge and experiences from other populations, supply raw material and finally, to spread by founding colonies all over the Mediterranean sea and even further. Thus, they shaped their unique of civilization, which has been a source of inspiration for humanity throughout the centuries.
We already know much about the philosophical searches of ancient Greek, about their artworks and about their history, investigating either their texts or keeping touch with archaeological studies. Nonetheless, there is a less known part of their civilization, relevant to their technical and technological evolution. Their grandiose achievements indicate that the majority of science, geometry, math, chemistry, mechanic and static regulations are not totally obscured and they were the basis for constructions that are ultimately related to their everyday life.
These inventions, most of which are colossal, had to do with the whole city and of every building as a unit, with their everyday agricultural and veterinary tasks, and also with the water management, with navigation and shipbuilding, with the mixture of metals, with the entertainment and, in general, with the simplification of everyday life.
