Telling Time Without a Clock - Scandinavian Daymarks
Industrialized societies need accurate regular time measurement to function. Does everyone on Earth live in such a society? No, in some parts of the world people still live much as they did thousands of years ago. Only a few hundred years ago telling time exactly wasn't so important. But it was still helpful to get a rough idea of what time it was. This is an interesting article about telling time with daymarks and the sun.
Types of Sundials
Sundials are classified into a number of different types, mainly by the plane in which the dial lies. This page includes descriptions and examples of many different types.
