Proposal for memorial
A sundial that illuminates only one time : that time being the time of the event being memorialised.
A circular wall, 7ft in height, enclosing a large circular space (diameter 5m minimum).
The clock face on the floor of the enclosed circular space.
On the inward-facing side of the circular wall, directly above the time being memorialised: a plaque detailing the events being memorialised.
A narrow opening on the section of the wall opposite this plaque.
At the correct time of year, the sun shines through the aperture and illuminates the exact time of the memorialised event on the floor-based clock-face, as well as the plaque above it.
