Colin Oakes examines how our calendar developed from Republican Romes’,  through Julius Caesar ”Julian calendar”, then the Augustinian changes,  Anglo-Saxon modifications and then onto The Gregorian calendar.  He will examine the great changes in 1751 and 1752 and the missing days, with some ramifications for dates before 1752;  ending with more modern changes and leap years, seconds and Atomic clocks.
