|Description ||Sundial on the wall of St Gregory's Minster. (cast in the Science Museum, London)... The inscription reads: "This is the day's sun-marking at every hour. And Hawaro made me, and Brand, priest" . The lines with cross bars correspond to 6am, 9am, noon, 3pm and 6pm. The uncrossed lines divide time into one and a half hour periods. The line with a cross on it on the lefthand side of the dial denotes 7.30am which marked the brginning of "daytime". (N and M Kerr's Guide to Anglo-Saxon Sites)|
