Asked June 28, 2016, 4:40 AM EDT

Hi, I am an A-Level student and would like to do an EPQ ( extended project) about automata and ancient mechanics/ machines.However I am having trouble finding information about this topic. Could you recommend what I should search for and where I could find it? Thanks, Rebecca C.

A simple internet search for "ancient machines" brought up inventions by Hero of Alexander, machines of ancient China, Greek machines, and many others. Try that to get started. All of the old early civilizations had their machines. Some were war making machines.
