This website is designed to introduce the user to basic concepts having to do with time. It is important to study time - not just so we get to where we belong. So much in our world depends on the ability to tell time accurately. In addition, time is an important part of history - our own and the world's.

This site has graphics and quizzes to help you learn more about time. The quizzes use JavaScript and sound effects so make sure both are on to enjoy this site to its fullest. In addition, there are also JavaScript time animations on several pages.

For those that use screen readers, there are animated letters at the top of each content page spelling out the title of the page. The link on the first letter goes to the beginning of the page content. The link on the second letter goes to the menu table at the bottom of the page.
