115th Anniversary of the discovery of it (not the building of it, the instrument has been variously dated to about 87 BC,[16] or between 150 and 100 BC,[5] or in 205 BC,[17][18] or within a generation before the date of the shipwreck (in about 60 BC))

There was a really interesting documentary on the BBC about it. Alas, not on the iPlayer currently, but it is available on youtube.
