Description

For over 1000 years sundials have played an important role in regulating the daily life of mankind throughout Europe and the British Isles. Indeed the study of the art of constructing sundials, or the 'Art of Dialling', was a part of every scholar's education. Only with the coming of modern communications and the extreme accuracy of timekeeping equipment has the sundial been eclipsed as a scientific instrument and ceased to provide a useful service. This text describes and illustrates each particular class of sundial likely to be found on buildings, in churchyards, public squares, and remote countryside locations.

Author Biography

Christopher Daniel joined the National Maritime Museum in 1964, after a career at sea, becoming Heading of the Department of Museum services. In 1986 he left the museum to pursue his current career as a sundial designer. His works include the famous dolphin sundial at Greenwich, marking the Queen's Silver Jubilee; the reconstructed vertical sundial at HM Tower of London; the Sir Francis Drake commemorative stained glass sundial in Buckland Abbey; and the equinoctial armillary sundial in Windsor. He is chairman of the British Sundial Society and author of the 'sundial page' in 'Clocks' magazine.
