Join us in London, a city both cutting-edge and grounded in history,
as we move forward and backward in time to look at the development
of time measurement, its impact on exploration, imagination, societal
development, and what it could mean in the future—might time
travel ever be possible? For thousands of years, recording time has
been a way by which humanity has observed the heavens and
represented the progress of civilization. Sundials and candle-clocks
gave way to mechanical clocks and the ultimate discovery in England:
the measurement of longitude, which changed exploration forever.
This unique journey explores how time is measured today, and its
future possibilities, while visiting a number of sites ranging from
Stonehenge to the NPL atomic clock, to contemplating geological
time along the Fossil Coast. Optional post-extension to York.
