Inventions of Archimedes

Archimedes was arguably the most famous inventor of Ancient Greece.  He developed the first water clock, which used the power of water to keep time.  One example of his inventions was the Archimedes screw.  The screw consisted of a crank which when turned could be used to raise water which could then be used for irrigation purposes.  Archimedes was also the innovator of the lever and pulley system and used these to create the world's first crane.

This is a picture of the Archimedes screw which allowed farmers to use water that was far away to water their fields.
