So did you know our ancestors from almost 4,000 years ago used disks to store information, just like we do with our CDs today? And even more important is the fact that one of these disks – known to us as the Phaistos Disk may have finally been decoded. This is rediscovered prehistoric knowledge and a system of super elegance that was lost before Moses reached the Promised Land.
Here we pursue and resolve the obscure riddle of the Phaistos Disc and reveal an amazing truth: that Minoan Bronze Age man had a level of knowledge to match that of 20th-century Europe. Their mathematics was ahead of the Greeks and to this day we use a unit of their measure: the Nautical Mile. Here we demonstrate that Bronze Age man knew the world to be round, and that he could measure its circumference to within hundreds of metres!
