Horology -The science of measuring time. The art of making instruments for indicating time.
WHAT IS WEB HOROLOGY? Since the dawn of time, humans have been fascinated with the passage of days into seasons, seasons into years, and years into lifetimes. As we moved from our agrarian roots to more civilized societies, it became increasingly important to measure time in ever-smaller increments. With the development of the first sundial thousands of years ago, the study of horology (the science of measuring time) was born. If you find yourself fascinated with devices that measure time, you have come to the right place.
