Hands up who knows what Horology is?
Posted August 30th, 2018 by Grant Nicholas IACF and filed under IACF News & Other Interesting Stuff
Hands up who knows what Horology is? No, it’s got nothing to do with horoscopes or any other arcane way of predicting the future; though the Greek origin for both words has the same root – Horo – meaning hour.
