The year 2000 marked the end of the second millennium since the supposed date of the birth of Christ. The British government set aside money from the National Lottery for several engineering works to mark the year. The best known is the Millennium Dome in London's east end, but there are others. Today I came across one I had not heard about, The Falkirk Wheel . What I like about it is that it uses engineering principles from Archimedes and cost only $25 a day to run.
