My Travelling Sundial design.

In ancient times, Sun clocks in mini-format were already known in the East, and during the 15th century became widely dispersed in Europe, especially in Germany, France and England.

During the 15th and 16th centuries multi-faced Sun clocks were the rage. One example is given below. They had the advantage of being used without the need of a compass. The 'cube' was correctly aligned to the South, when all surfaces gave the same time.

Stefano Bonsignori, a monk, probably made the one presented, and it was beautifully hand-painted on a pergament surface. It was designed to be "accurate" for a latitude of 45°, but can be used for latifudes between 50° and 40°. Some of the clocks were quite complex, and could be used for different latitudes The times given are in Local Time (ie noon is set at 12 o'clock).
