• Greece: Engineering an Empire

    Western Civilization has been influenced by many cultures, from Rome to America, but it was born in Ancient Greece. Centuries before Julius Caesar conquered much of the known world, the Ancient Greeks were laying a foundation that has supported nearly 3000 years of European history. Ancient Greece brings to mind philosophers like Aristotle and Socrates, Olympian gods, the beginnings of democracy, great conquering armies like those of Alexander the Great, and savage internecine battles, none more famous than the duel to the death between Athens and Sparta. Greece is a story about the human drive to explore, to wonder, to be curious. Their ruins now communicate that drive. Over 1000 years, this strong and charismatic people strategically harnessed the materials and people around them to cre...

  • History Channel - Engineering an Empire - Greece in the Age of Alexander

    In 438 BC the Parthenon was completed. This masterpiece is the crowning achievement for the Greek people. Without Alexander the Great, it is possible Greece's Golden Era would have been just a footnote in history. Tens of thousands would die during Alexander's relentless attacks on Persia and Egypt, yet, his armies carried Greek life, culture and values far abroad and this empire became known as the Hellenistic world. Greece's amazing engineering achievements and ideas are still with us today.

  • Impossible Bridge, Greece

    The Rion-Antirion bridge has the longest span of any cable-stayed bridge in the world. It spans 2200m through the Gulf of Corinth, Greece. In addition, this bridge enters the record books with the biggest and deepest pier foundation. Its other incredible feature that no other bridge has is the capability to survive severe earthquakes since the bridge lies right above the active seismic fault line. The question is how to build this megabridge in order to link two important regions in Greece and to welcome the Olympic flame on the way to Athens. The engineers and builders have to face so many challenges in all stages of the construction: from reinforcing the seabed, building the floating foundation, erecting the pylon, and anchoring the roadway. Let enjoy the movie to see amazing technolog...

    Aeronautical Engineering Students take part in a study trip to Greece. They visit the premises of the Hellenic Aerospace Industry, where they are shown the complete life cycle of a typical aerospace industry project. The students then visited the neighbouring Tanagra Air Force Base to see the operational part of an aerospace project. Finally, to enhance student's cultural exposure, they visited Mikines (UNESCO world heritage monument) and Epidavros.

    Engineering Feats of the Golden Age - The Parthenon. The Parthenon (Greek: Παρθενών) is a temple on the Athenian Acropolis, Greece, dedicated to the maiden goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens considered their patron. Its construction began in 447 BC when the Athenian Empire was at the height of its power. It was completed in 438 BC, although decoration of the building continued until 432 BC. It is the most important surviving building of Classical Greece, generally considered the culmination of the development of the Doric order.

From The Tunnel of Samos: a mile-long aqueduct dug through a large mountain of solid limestone, to Agamemnon's Tomb, to The Parthenon, this episode will examine the architecture and infrastructure engineered by the Greek Empire.
