Descriere

Sundials from Cluj County, Romania - de Dan George Uza

A guidebook to the old customs of measuring time in the heartland of Transylvania, Romania.
From very long ago until a not-so-distant past, humans assessed time subjectively, by the length of their own shadows or the position of the sun relative to the buildings or objects around them. People then invented the sundial to better measure time according to the sun. Now there are about 200 sundials in Romania - Cluj County has about 20. Featuring close-up colour photographs, this book presents their history and locations using QR coded GPS coordinates and tips for easy access.
