    Greeks invented the crane 1.5k years earlier than previously thought



    "The foremost discovery of the Greeks in building technology is the crane," Pierattini said. "No previous civilizations are known to have used it, and it has remained central to building construction without remarkable changes for nearly 25 centuries—because it was perfect."

    When will the t-rolls arrive trying to claim it that it was not really invented by the ancient Greeks, that they stole it from another culture, that the ancient Greeks were not really Greeks, that the modern Greeks have no connection to the ancient Greeks, that modern Greeks are Slavs or Albanians or Bulgarians?
