The Sense of Place series presents a number of  IDEAS  through  a range of data - text, photographs, drawings, diagrams, statistics and maps to encourage students to form opinion through feelings and values as well as evidence whilst developing a wide range of skills that helps students to look at the future as well as understand the present.

“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren't any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth,   you wouldn't be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter   how overwhelming life's challenges and problems seem to be, that   one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.”

THE ONE THING that history teaches us, IS that our large brained homo sapiens forebears, were as resourceful in their understanding of 'the theory of everything' as indeed HumanKIND is today. If one single item were to be chosen to exemplify the TRUTH of this statement - in juxtaposition to the multitude of other proofs, from the pyramids, through aqueducts, to the terracotta army - IT would be the Antikythera... a timepiece/computer mechanism? - an ancient Greek clockwork machine which was found in a shipwreck more than a hundred years ago, by sponge divers at the bottom
of the sea near the island of Antikythera - that has taken more than a century to decipher. It astonished the whole international community of experts on the ancient world.

Was it an astrolabe ? Was it an orrery or an astronomical clock ?
