About this title:

Synopsis: Why do we measure time in various ways? Why is a week seven days long? When did minutes and seconds come into being? Why are some calendars lunar and some solar? With a range of fascinating examples from Ancient Rome and Julius Caesars imposition of the Leap Year to the 1920s project for a fixed Easter, this book chats about the time by tracing back to ancient and visiting today.
