Sun­dial it down

In agrar­ian times, when grains were first sown and mankind turned from its no­madic life­style to a com­mu­nal one, the sun was not merely the source of life and en­ergy, but also the only way to keep track of the day. Sun­di­als re­flected the time clearly, to en­sure that they would know when to leave the fields. The larger the sun­dial and the thin­ner the rod, the more pre­cise the time.
