            Calendar and Holidays on Ancient Aztec Calendar
            Cultures throughout history have devised many ways of tracking time, from ancient China to Mesoamerica.

            By some estimates, humans have been tracking the seasons and the movements of the stars for more than 6,000 years. Sites from Egypt to England have (speculatively) been related to these ancient methods of keeping time. Infoplease is happy to provide you with some more modern methods of timekeeping. Check out our different calendars, and find out more about the history of modern dates and times.
