The Truth Behind the Mathematical Bridge

This unusual timber-beamed bridge, which dates back to 1749, is the subject of much misinformation and myth-making. According to legend, it was the brainchild of Sir Isaac Newton, who designed it in such a way that it would hold together without the need for any nails, screws, or bolts. In reality, the bridge was not built until 22 years after Newton’s death, and various bolts and nails are used in the structure.
