With A Breathing Apparatus20 August, 2015
|The Assyrians were credited with many technological achievements such as the first system of keeping time, first paved roads, first postal system, first plumbing and flush toilets, invention of locks and keys and magnifying glasses.|
Although, the telescope was officially invented in the 16th century, it is possible that ancient Assyrian astronomers used the so-called Nimrud lens that allowed them to watch the skies nearly three thousand years earlier.
The Assyrians were without doubt very innovative people and it is only logical to assume that they could have invented some form of breathing apparatus.
