    In order to track temporal hours during the day, inventors created sundials, which indicate time by the length or direction of the sun’s shadow. The sundial’s counterpart, the water clock, was designed to measure temporal hours at night. One of the first water clocks was a basin with a small hole near the bottom through which the water dripped out. The falling water level denoted the passing hour as it dipped below hour lines inscribed on the inner surface. Although these devices performed satisfactorily around the Mediterranean, they could not always be depended on in the cloudy and often freezing weather of northern Europe.


    Hi Orson,

    Here is my attempt at the WWH of your paragraph:

    What: A description of the water clock.
    Why: Time keeping has always been an important part of society.
    How: By discussing the operation of the water clock, as well as its counterpart (sundial), as well as its drawbacks (cloudy/freezing).

    What’s yours?
