Tony Freeth is a founding member of the Antikythera Mechanism Research Project and an Honorary Senior Research Associate at University College, London. His academic background was in mathematics, with degrees from Cambridge (UK) and Bristol (UK). He then worked as a film director/producer for twenty-five years—for example, making films in Sub-Saharan Africa with Nobel laureate, Norman Borlaug, about how to raise food production for subsistence farmers. In 2000, he proposed and organised new scientific investigations on the Antikythera Mechanism. The results revolutionized Antikythera research and were published in Nature (Freeth et al, Nature 2006 and Freeth et al, Nature 2008) as well as other prominent science journals. He also produced and appeared in an award-winning TV documentary about the Antikythera Mechanism.
