TECHNOLOGY: Water clocks were the common way of keeping time prior to mechanical clocks. Time was measured through the regulated flow of water into (or out of) a vessel where the amount of water correlated to the amount of time that had passed. One of the most well-known water clocks is the Elephant Clock invented by Al-Jazari in roughly 1206. Though the water clock never reached today's standard of timekeeping, they were the most reliable timekeeping device for nearly a millennia.
