Professor Samuel Cobb
of the Durham University. Was taking his vacation in the Mediterranean Sea sailing
and scuba diving. Chasing down history’s artifacts. Off the shores of Athens. The
long hot summer day he enjoyed to the fullest. He had saved for years and got a
few research grants for his so-called expedition.
He found some beauties
too add to the charm of the Mediterranean. They joined him on his 40-foot yacht.
They were fun to party with, he was more interested in what he could find under
the water than the girls. Using his
underwater metal detector he had found, old 16- century canons and outboard
motor and many new objects.
He moved farther out
into the Aegean Sea on the route he believed to have been taken to troy, anchored
and made a few dives.
It may have been
lucky that he had just anchored right over a sunken Greek ship. Although he
believed it was his research that led him there. The ship was obviously a
supply ship. He had found many suits on armor and helmets and swords. And three
skeletons still in their armor. He had brought them all to the surface to be
cleaned and inventoried. On one of the lifts, a heavy bronze sword fell out of
the netting and brushed against his arm just missing him.
It was on his last
dive with 15 minutes of air left. He knew he had surfaced when he had 5 minutes
left to decompress. When his metal detector went nuts. He dug with his diving
knife in the silt and sand, to find a metal box, about 6 inches high by 8
inches long and 3 inches wide.
Back on-board his
boat, he cleaned the box of sand and silt. It was open on the top and ends and
had many gears, and two knobs with graduated dials on it. At first, he thought
it was made of gold, but under further examination, it was found to be gold
plated. He believes it was an early form of Sexton. He had found it had four
mirrors made of silver. They were a position by the knobs. His two months of
vacation was over, and he returned to port at Athens.
He met with the Greek
mister of antiquities, they had no claim on his find because of them being
found in international waters. He, however, gave them one of the skeletons and
five sets of armor. Just to keep them happy.
He got everything
pack and shipped back to the Durham University, In England.
He caught his flight
back home and was thinking about the box he found. He got home a week before
the things he found would get there.
He prepared his lab
to receive the items he had found.
ultra-sound cleaning baths to remove the sea, sand, and salt form them. He made
a chemical bath to protect them from decay from the air.
They finally showed
up, and he started the work on them. He took a tooth and some bones and sent
them off to be tested for DNA and carbon dating. He believes them to be from
the Trojan war, from Homers Iliad. One of the thousand ships sent to bring back their Queen.
When it came to the mysterious box, he cleans it first in the
ultrasound bath, and then he started to take pictures of it, then he started to
disable it. Making sure he could put it back together. The
parts had been gold plated, and it had protected the brass parts from decay. He
was surprised to find how well it had been machined. Expressly for the time, it
was made. The bolts and screws were as fine as if they had been machined on a
He found the mirrors were polished with mercury, to a high
gloss. As he put it back together, he found it had jewel bearings.
He was not sure of
its use although he believes it was a navigational instrument of some kind. He
moved the knobs through their range and found the mirrors adjusted to different
angles. He put it on a table next to a
window. He went to take some of the armor out of the cleaner. When he turned
around, he saw a portal about four feet in front of the table. He could hear
people screaming and could see them running. Then a spear came through it and
broke the lab window it landed stuck in the ground by some student sitting on
the lawn. They got a good scary from it. He yelled out he was sorry he was
doing an experiment, and it went wrong. He asks a student to bring it back to
the lab. A student brought it back to
the lab and asked, professor Sam as he was preferred to be called, what he was
doing. Sam showed him the target he was aiming at. And it went array, he had a
chest plate of armor, he said he was aiming at. To see how it would protect
someone wearing it.
Sam took it out of
the sunlight. And the portal disappeared.
He was not sure of what had just transpired. It was strange, to say the
least. He questions what to do next. It
had some strange powers. He decided to
try it one more time. He set it in the sunlight and turned a knob one notch.
And again a portalappeared. This time it was a market
place he could hear people talking, he caught a few words that he recognized.
But the dialect was unknown to him. He was literate, he could speck read and
read all most any langue in the world, there was very few he did not know.
It had accrued to him
that he should not be playing around withtechnology he knew nothing about. He found that
one knob pick a period and the other a place.
