We all need a bit of help organising our time and remembering important dates and events, be it a diary, a year planner, a digital calendar or a calendar hung on a wall in plain view. Calendars date back to the Bronze Age, with the course of the sun and moon being used to keep time across various ancient cultures before the Romans (during the reign of Julius Caesar) reformed their calendar in 45 BC so that it was no longer dependent upon the observation of the new moon each month but instead followed an algorithm, and introduced the leap year. In 1582 the Roman Julian calendar was revised further (we now use the Gregorian calendar) following a long-term shift observed between the Julian calendar and the solar year, and it is the Gregorian calendar that we still use to this day.
