Re-discovering of Mechanical Equipments

Authors(2) :-Karol Vasilko, Zuzana Murcinkova

The paper presents the development and origins of mechanics and refers to old machinery, equipment, apparatus, which stand out from technical level of its time. Such analyses find out some similarities – parallels of mechanical principles between present and ancient age. On the base of the study of the origins of mechanics, it can be observed there are some equipments and also technologies that are currently undiscovered but utilized by previous (even extinct) civilizations. We do not expect it, because we have been influenced by the classical, traditional explanation of history from the simple (primitive) to the complex (sophisticated). The authors analyse the idea of “repeated discovery” – re-discovery
