Time's Untold Tales: When Dublin had two time zones & other stories

Telling the time in hours and minutes seems so natural that we don’t even question where it came from. However it is a pretty recent development. For most of history  our ancestors didn’t have clocks and understood time itself in a very different way. 

In this podcast we will journey back through the centuries to explore how our ancestors measured time. Its an intriguing story. In the medieval world, the length of an hour changed every day so we will look at how that worked and also how Dublin in the 1870s had two separate time zones!
