Latest invention in bearings
The first known ball bearing was found when excavating a vessel from the Nemi lake outside Rome in the 1930s. It was a thrust bearing designed to carry a turntable for a statue on one of emperor Caligula's ships, and dates to around 50 A.D. The bearing washers were made of wood and the upper washer, equipped with bronze balls with stub shafts on each side, rotated on the lower washer. The balls were mounted in recesses and not freely rotating as in modern bearings, but constrained by the stub shafts and straps over them.
