It was Eratosthenes in 240 BC who, remarkably accurately, calculated the diameter of the earth. Damned clever those ancient Greeks!

Truly very interesting. With all our modern technology its sometimes easy to dismiss the ancients as some sort of ill developed lot.

It's always worth remembering that whilst our knowledge has grown over time for the most part our intellectual capacity has remained broadly the same.
