Talk: Time and Culture in Ancient Greece and Rome

Professor Alexander Meyer (Western University, London, Ontario) examines the ways ancient Greeks and Romans kept time and their reasons for doing so. He discusses various time-keeping artifacts and works of literature to show that the manner in which time was kept and tracked reflected and continues to reflect much broader cultural issues, including imperialism, commercialism, religion, and law.
