Archimedes of Syracuse, c. 287 - 212 B.C., mathematician and inventor.

Draft. Some of the obvious things here include:

  • The "Eureka" thing
  • Archimedes' screw
  • Machines invented for the defense of Syracuse
  • Books written (yes, they didn't survive intact, but list them anyway)
  • Some info on π, or at least a link to π's page.
