Among thousands of inventions that the British gave to the world, there is one that everyone surely uses and depends upon - a global system of time and time zones. And I'm not surprised that it was actually invented in Britain as it was once the largest empire and the greatest seapower ever existed. And as many of us know, a notion of time and its derivatives - longitude and latitude - are the key in sea navigation. So for that reason, Greenwich, a borough of London, was chosen a centre of world's time.
