It's a basic division of time, Probably invented by hebrews.(jewish)

I don't remember specifically who did it, but I do remember that it was accidental. The intent was to make 10 hours in the day and 10 hours at night, so they divided the day into 10 equal portions, and when they tried to extrapolate those into the night, they found there were 14. That's right, they tried it in the winter. But since then 24 hours has stuck.

I think it was the Ancient Egyptians.

I thought that the Romans created the hour system.

I don't know...

but isn't is ever so interesting that despite the 24 hours in a day humans actually go by a 25 hour clock naturally (:

The mayans... I think.

Two Societies

I think the hours were actually developed by not only Egyptians, but also the Aztecs/Mayans.

Both societies were very strong in mathematics and I do believe both followed the shadows, though Egyptians didn't develop the 'hour' and 'minutes' as we know them, though we had a similar system that eventually spread. But the Aztecs/Mayans used actual numbers to tell the time of the day. Eventually, I believe both ideas met and stayed over time.

But I'm not completely sure about it, I'm not a huge fan of ancient cultures. =/

I just absolutely adore this page.
Mr. Duck is lovely, and as is the man of few words.

Probably the Babylonians/Chaldeans, because nobody's said it yet. Actually, I'm really surprised nobody's suggested them. They did a lot of math stuff earlier than anyone else mentioned, and used base-6 and base-60 number systems.
