PERFORMER Sylvester Morand
DEBUT 1996

Archimedes (287-212 BC) was an ancient Greek mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher. He is best remembered for discovering the principles of density and buoyancy. According to accounts, he had an epiphany in the bathtub and shouting "Eureka!" ("I have found it!) leaped out into the city streets, unclothed.

In the 1996 Creature Shop TV movie Gulliver's Travels, Archimedes is among the historical figures conjured in the home of The Sorceror, along with Cleopatra, Plato, Alexander the Great, Hannibal, and Mark Antony, amongst others. Re-experiencing the joys of discover, Archimedes gleefully shouts his famous phrase, this time partially clad in a towel.
