for winter time, and Arabic numerals for summer time. Ten-minute intervals
are indicated by short lines, and the five minute intervals by spots,
so the dial can be read to within a minute or two. Instructions of how
to set up the sundial to point to true North, so that it tells sun time
correctly, are given on our setup page. There is a wealth of other information
