Description

A fascinating tour of time measurement through the ages. Children discover how humans learned to recognize time and began to measure it in smaller and smaller units from the precisely placed boulders at Stonehenge, which marked the equinoxes; to Egyptian obelisks, which measured the hours; to modern-day atomic clocks, which subdivide seconds.
