This is a lively and informative account of the development of the calendar, from various ancient civilizations to the present day. Part of the story concerns the mechanics of measuring a "year" and this concept varied in different eras and among different peoples of the earth. The other half of the tale concerns how theories about time influenced these efforts at measurement and how the resulting calendars then dictated how people ordered their lives. This book allows you to step back and understand the evolution of our thinking about a fundamental concept (time) that today we tend to take for granted.
