Build a human sundial for winter solstice: Tell time the ancient way.
Master gardeners in Washington State University Extension Clark County have devised a cool way to mark the occasion when the sun hits its lowest point in the sky: they built a human sundial.
Featured with a photo gallery and article on Oregonlive.com, the project was built as 78th Street Heritage Farm in Vancouver, Washington. The sundial needs a person to act as the gnomon, the part of a sundial that casts the shadow that measures true local time. The project was made possible by donations, including Mutual Materials donating the stones.
