If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Frank King.
This is a fast-moving story. A contemporary English diallist works in harness with the Roman poet Virgil (and a number of others) to produce an unlikely analemmatic sundial in a truly exotic setting. There is a mystery courting couple, the brooding presence of Vesuvius, hints of Mafia involvement and an elementary geometry lesson. You will need to pay close attention. Alas, there is a sad ending.
