Colin Murray

Michael Scott uses 3D scanning technology to reveal the historical secrets of ancient Athens and tell the story of how this remarkable city created the world's first democracy. He begins his journey on the Acropolis, where, in the late sixth century BC the people of Athens overthrew a tyrant and set up a democracy, and investigates a mysterious, asymmetrical temple called the Erechtheion that sits in the shadow of the world-famous Parthenon. To the south of the city, he clambers through a silver mine where an army of slaves once toiled inside the labyrinth of narrow tunnels
