Great animated film – not on the Philistines – but on their “relatives” – check it out

Yesterday, I received information on a great animated clip whose central theme is transporting a ship over land thru the Isthmus of Corinth in Classical Greek times, but also illustrates many other very interesting aspects of ancient Greek culture and technology.

Here is the notice that appeared in “Aegeanet” – courtesy of Kalliopi Efkleidou:

“This is a link (http://vimeo.com/13229017) to a very interesting animation film on the Diolkos, the land route which enabled ships to be transported across the Corinth Isthmus. On the side it shows interesting features of the maritime voyage of a trade ship arriving at the corinthian gulf, crossing the diolkos and ending up at Kenchreai before leaving for Cyprus, technological achievements, visit to Poseidon’s temple, traded goods etc. Produced by the ASSOCIATION of ANCIENT GREEK TECHNOLOGY STUDIES (EMAET) & the Technical Chamber of Greece.”
Highly recommended – check it out!
