Science and Art: How Time has been told through the ages

Science meets art and explains how telling the time has changed over the ages.

When? How Long? Now! As the social context of time telling and the accuracy required has changed over history, our own perception of the transience of life has never varied. Perhaps as a result of this, time-telling devices (whether using shadows, clockworks, the drip of water or the burning of wax), have always been produced with exceptional craftsmanship, intricacy and beauty. This study day looks at many time-telling devices and charts how their use has risen and fallen as history, fashion and technology have progressed.
