    COLUMBIA, PA: Pack a lunch and join the National Watch and Clock Museum for its Lunch “Time” presentation on Wednesday, April 11.

    Museum Director Noel Poirier will discuss the ancient Antikythera Mechanism and the theories for its use and what it tells us about ancient timekeeping capabilities. Those attending will be able to examine the Museum’s model based on drawings made by Dr. Derek de Solla Price during his study of bronze fragments in the early 1970s.

    The Museum invites the public to join in a casual conversation and understanding of timekeeping, including developments beginning during ancient timekeeping. “We wanted to provide a more intimate opportunity for people to discover objects from the Museum collection or learn about important and interesting aspects of the history of time and timekeeping. We thought a brown bag lunch would be the perfect fit,” explains Poirier.

    Lunch “Time” is a complimentary educational program held from noon to 1 p.m. and will continue every other month. The next program is scheduled for June 13.
