Abstract

The mischievous scholar Nicholas of Oxford (as featured in Chaucer’s The Miller’s Tale) takes us back to the future for a whistle-stop tour of the history of time-telling. For him a Roman sundial is yesterday’s news, but what will the medieval scholar make of a marine chronometer, a Renaissance sundial, a revolutionary decimal clock, a stopwatch or the most recent physics of time?
