Comment: I am currently writing a paper on Archimedes so I found this site extremely
useful. I spent about 20 minutes reading the information written on this
website, but I have spent much more time accessing the various links for
additional information on Archimedes. I think the links at the bottom of the
page are probably the most useful. I will continue to utilize this site as a
home-page of sorts, in my research. The information listed overall was useful
and easy to read and it gave a good biographical view of Archimedes. It just
wasn?t as detailed as I had hoped in detailing all of his mathematical
accomplishments. It is great for those looking for a very high-level overview
but, if you need to dig deeper, I highly recommend accessing the links at the
bottom of the page. Particularly the list of references that were used in
creating this page, those books will come in very useful if you need to do some
significant research. Overall the quality of the content is good, and if you
need more info on Archimedes there is an abundance of information to be found
using the links this site suggests.
