Description: Our present calendar predates the invention of the telescope, the mechanical clock, and the concept of zero -- and its development is one of the great untold stories of science and history. Now, David Ewing Duncan leads us on an extraordinary journey through man's reckoning of time, from the earliest calendars to today's atomic clocks. We travel from Stonehenge to Giza, from Mayan observatories to Elizabethan England; we visit a host of ancient cultures and meet a cast of historic personages and giants of science. Here is a fresh, stimulating volume that answers -- and raises -- a host of fascinating questions about the nature of human timekeeping and the majestic historical forces that have produced the miracle of the calendar.
