  • everyone pretty much said it... position of the sun. Even without a watch I can tell for most of the day just about what time it actually is just by looking at the shadows or seeing where the sun is or isn't in the sky during the day.

  • it's to do with the movement of the sun from east to west. i'm not sure how he figured out the night hours though. maybe he chucked an all nighter?

  • The native Americans and for the most part all the citizens of the time could tell time by the Suns position in the sky. The sundial was as close to a clock as you got back in the Roman Empire era

  • hahahaha... thats a valid question, but time has been kept since the Egyptian era, it just was miniaturized.
