Sundial

Active selection:    
Solar time is time measured by the apparent movement of the sun, a solar day being the time taken for one complete rotation of the earth. For years, most people used the sun to tell the time. This Tudor gentleman is telling the time using a portable version of a solar time device Sundial that is still seen on the walls of buildings and in gardens. The sundial works by allowing the sun to throw a shadow onto a surface marked with the hours of the day according to a mathematical formula.
