Ancient Inventions
  • English

Join Monty Python's Terry Jones on a tour of the ingenuity of our ancestors. Take a humorous yet factual look at inventions we think of as unique to modern times when really they have been around for centuries and many even longer. Some of the amazing discoveries include: automatic doors - first designed over 2000 years ago; accurate pregnancy tests - a regular feature of ancient Babylon; and tanks - actually devised by the Assyrians in 8 BC. Clearly the ancient world was every bit as inventive as our own.
