    7. Other than  http://members.aol.com/lagardesse/, A Walk Through Time <<http://physics.nist.gov/GenInt/Time/time.html>>
    offers an illustrated tour of the different instruments used throughout time...
    from Stonehenge to a map showing the time zones. With text around these
    pictures, one can better understand the hardships of being able to tell time throughout the years.

    The site from Britannica.com is amazing!
