Richard Carrier gives enthusiastic recommendations for three recent books* related to ancient science.

"These are the kinds of authors I wish I were, and strive to be. All three books are entirely approachable to laymen, yet all are advanced, cutting-edge works, and will be required reading for experts in their respective subjects for decades to come."
* The Catapult: A History
  Technology and Culture in Greek and Roman Antiquity
  Creationism and Its Critics in Antiquity
