Dr. Alexander Meyer, Wednesday, March 27 at 7 p.m London Public Library, 251 Dundas Street
Central Branch Stevenson & Hunt Room (Main Level)
The manner in which we keep time is integral to our culture. Clocks and calendars provide the framework around which daily and seasonal life is structured. Ancient culture was no different and, as in the modern world, there was more than one calendar and system of time-keeping being used. Dr. Meyer will examine the various means by which inhabitants of the Roman world tracked time and discuss how calendars and clocks affect our understanding of practical life and cultural interaction in the Roman world.
