Sundials and the History of Reckoning Time
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Frank King.
We are accustomed to using the 24-hour clock where time runs from midnight-to-midnight and each hour has the same length (usually). Many other ways of dividing up the day have been used in the past and this talk uses sundials to illustrate some unfamiliar ways of reckoning time.
This talk is part of the Frank King series.
