The Re-Inventors: Roman Crane
Powered by a human-sized hamster wheel, the Roman crane was responsible for building some of the most impressive structures in history, including the Coliseum, the Pantheon and Hadrian's Wall. Matt and Jeremy salute this invention the only way they know how: by resurrecting this 2nd Century giant of engineering. Follow them as they construct this massive piece of equipment to see how it worked and how much it can lift. It's one of the biggest re-inventions they've ever built, and as they'll soon discover, it's also one of the most dangerous.
When it comes to hauling, lifting and building, humans have been making up for physical weakness with skillful ingenuity for thousands of years.
