Professor Aevitas’ chamber of time

He dedicated his life to one dream: being able to travel through time. On his sixtieth birthday a eureka moment led to the finalisation of his dream: the chamber of time. A few years later he is a seasoned time traveller, watching history as it occurs. From the rise of the renaissance, the invention of barbwire in the west of the United States, the opening of the Colloseum in Rome to the fall of Berlin in 1945. There are even whispers he played the role of baker in Marie Antionette’s playtown…

As an avid art lover, one of his favourite moments happened in 1642. Never told anyone about it though.
