Description

Sundials have played an important role in regulating the daily life of mankind throughout Europe and the British Isles. This text describes and illustrates each particular class of sundial likely to be found on buildings, in churchyards, public squares, and remote countryside locations.

Christopher St.J.H. Daniel was the chairman of the British Sundial Society for 20 years. He designed the famous dolphin sundial in front of the observatory in Greenwich and other extraordinary sundials.
