Summary
The use of steam from boiling water has been used as a source of energy going back to Heron of Alexandria who designed the first steam engine. This film discovers the ingenious machines that the ancients used to harness natural power. Could the Romans have had the first industrial revolution, 2,000 years before we like to think it happened?
