Peristyle Wall Clock
« on: June 15, 2019, 03:39:18 AM »

I've discovered a technique that can help us with the timing of certain photos and films captured in the first 15 minutes or later after 12:30. During this time the shadow moves about 3 per minute. The biggest issue I've found is the poor digital resolution of photos and video available to us. As a result, estimated times should be considered to have a possible error up-to plus/minus 1 minute. To be useful the north peristyle wall needs to in-frame, but only a handful of examples exist. Here is a summary of those I've found so far.

Pretty cool James.
And yes that has been credited to Darnell at least I guess on Youtube and IMHO is most unlikely to be Couch or Underwood. I was looking at it the other day wondering if there's anyone in that Towner clip(that was under discussion recently) that matches up but it seems some time has passed between the two.
