Medieval Clock - Amazing
Imagine having this strapped to your wrist. It's amazing just how inventive our ancestors were. One in Exeter cathedral is 14 C, if memory serves. Incredible how far back clocks go - look at Stonehenge. Predicted both summer and winter with incredible accuracy.
This clock is in Prague. It was first installed in 1410 and is really an astronomical clock - so very like Stonehenge in many ways.
