Before clocks were invented, people generally relied on the sun’s passage through the sky to help tell time, with the earliest examples of sundials being invented around 3500 BCE. Over time, technologies advanced and mankind engineered mechanical clocks, as we know them today. In England, Salisbury Cathedral houses the oldest surviving clock in the country, dating back to 1386. As well as serving a practical function, clocks are now also decorative pieces that bring a space to life and add character to a room.
