History of Greenwich

History Of Greenwich

Greenwich is part of Greater London. It houses many remarkable structures from the 17th and 18th centuries. Greenwich is nestled along the southern bank of the river, stretching from Greenwich in the east to Thamesmead including Blackheath, Woolwich, Charlton, as well as Plumstead. The town centre is nestled in the middle. The main attractions include The National Maritime Museum, Cutty Sark, Queen’s House and Royal Observatory, all of which are situated in and around Greenwich Park.
Cutty Sark Greenwich
Greenwich town centre is a distinctive and world-renowned tourist destination. It has a lot more to offer both the local people as well as visitors, including magnificent museums and visitor attractions, elegant riverside walks as well as breath taking views from the Royal Park. These characteristics, combined with close links to Britain’s Stuart and Tudor sovereigns, give Greenwich a matchless emblematic identity.

This world heritage site has played a pivotal role in the history of England’s sea power for more than 4 centuries and today the town boasts its maritime history. The history of this town is linked to that of the Park, the Thames and the Royal Hospital for the sailors. Crammed with river workers and naval pensioners, Greenwich was the maritime and a place of most popular resort for the residents of London

Greenwich history

Greenwich has a varied history dating back to the Roman era and probably earlier. The ancient Londoners were known to have resided in nearby Charlton and scientists have discovered many pre-historic and Bronze Age relics in the nearby River Thames. The remains of the Roman temple were discovered back in in the year 1902 at the Greenwich Park. A section of one of the floors can be seen even today and some of the remains found at the site, encompassing pottery and coins, are now preserved at the Greenwich Heritage Centre.
National Maritime Museum Greenwich
After the Romans left Britain, the next invaders were the Saxons. An Anglo-Saxon cemetery was discovered in the 10th century within Greenwich Park. There is documented evidence regarding property in Greenwich that belonged to the Saxon King Edgar. The hugely complex saga of the real ownership of this ancient property strolls through the history of Greenwich much as the beautiful river on which it stands curves and bends.

After the Saxons left around 10th century, the Danes invaded Greenwich. Their longboats were moor at Greenwich and in 1012 the Danes abducted St Alfege. He was later killed by the Danes at the site where Hawksmoor’s Church of St Alfege lies. The present building was designed by Nicholas Hawks moor who was trained by Sir Christopher Wren. The church was completed in the year 1718.The Danish left Greenwich in the early 1400s.
Discover Greenwich
In 16th century Henry VII owned the palace at Greenwich town. Henry VIII and his daughters Elizabeth and Mary were born in the palace. But in the 16th century Charles II demolished the palace. James I decided to construct a new house at Greenwich for his Queen Anne of Denmark. The structure was called the Queens House and was the very first classical structure in England. The structure was completed in 1637. Nonetheless, Anne died before it was completed and it was rendered to the wife of Charles I.

Having held the former royal palace from 15th century to 1670, the site has evolved through a number of changing roles. Royal Hospital for Seamen was established in 1696 to 1869, its school 1712 to 1933, Royal Naval College 1872 to 1998. Dreadnought Seamen’s Hospital was built from 1870 to 1980 and National Maritime Museum since 1937.  Read More on Greenwich as a World Heritage Site

What Is GMT?

Greenwich Observatory

What is Greenwich Meantime (GMT) and how does it Relate to World Time?

GMT or Greenwich Mean Time is usually used for Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). It does not take into account the precise accuracy on the basis of fractions of a second. Usually, most people refer to GMT as a term which can be interchanged with UTC. However, there are some differences between these two concepts. In this article, we will tell you everything about Greenwich Mean Time and its relation to other world time zones.Greenwich Park ObservatoryGMT – An Overview

In 1884, Greenwich Mean Time was adopted as the world’s standard time. This happened during the Washington Meridian Conference. During this conference, Universal Time was also established. Universal Time gave rise to the international 24-hour time zone system. As a result, every time zone refers back to GMT on the prime meridian. Since the 19th century, prime meridian at Greenwich, England has served as the line of reference for GMT. The time of time of this city is taken as a reference for the whole world. The time of other cities of the world only calculated related to the time of this city.

At first, Greenwich Mean Time was calculated as per the 24-hour clock, beginning at noon. However, the scenario changed in 1925, when the day of GMT was considered to start at midnight. After a while, GMT Greenwich Time zone was renamed to Universal Time (UT). Sometimes, it is also referred as UT0. On the other hand, t is called UT1 when irregular movements of terrestrial poles are taken into account. Also known as Chandler Wobble, this happens because Earth’s poles never spin in a straight line.

Development of Different Time Systems

UT1 was followed by the formulation of a new concept. This one was known as UT2. It aimed to correct certain seasonal variations to give precise and accurate time. With the development of mechanical clocks, Atomic Time came into existence.

There are many different time services around the world. Their combined mean version is used as International Atomic Time (TAI). This one is the international atomic time scale. It is based on many different atomic clocks. However, unlike UT1, developed from GMT, it does not take into account the Earth’s rotation. As a result, one more standard for civil time is Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

Development of UTC

The difference between UTC and TAI are important seconds.  If you add or subtract seconds from TAI, it results in UTC. This difference is also known as a leap second.  A leap second is measured by an atomic clock, and added to or subtracted from UTC, to make it similar to astronomical time within 0.9 second.  All the timing centres in the world like to keep their timescales synchronised with UTC. Therefore, all these scales are known as Coordinated Universal Time.

Usually, GMT is often called UTC.  However, this reference means UT1.  Since 1972, UTC has been the universal time broadcast by radio stations around the globe.  Popularly, it is known as GMT Greenwich Mean Time zone.  UTC is unofficially known as Zulu Time.   It is also used in aviation to avoid any confusion between time zones and daylight saving time.

Some Other Time Systems

Astronomers also used other time systems to measure time. Some popular examples include:

Terrestrial Dynamical Time
Ephemeris Time
Terrestrial Dynamical Time (TDT) is 32.184 seconds ahead of TAI. Terrestrial Dynamical Time is also called Terrestrial Time (TT). It has a unit of duration 86400 SI seconds. Astronomers use TDT to calculate planetary positions with respect to the Earth’s center. The difference between UT1 and TDT is known as Delta T. TDT was first used in 1984. Prior to TDT, astronomers used Ephemeris Time (ET) to gather information about planetary positions. Ephemeris Time was the closest approximation before atomic clocks. It helped astronomers keep a track of planetary positions and motions.

Other important time systems in the world include :

Barycentric Dynamical Time (TDB)
Barycentric Coordinate Time (TCB)
Sidereal Time
Geocentric Coordinate Time (TCG)

GMT Greenwich Time zone is recognized by people all across the globe. Over time, people have come to adopt this system as a standard for civil time. However, other time zones mentioned in the article are also equally important for different purposes. Understanding how different time zones work will give you a better idea about their purpose and functioning. The standard Greenwich clock is located at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England.
