Do clocks go clockwise because of the sun dial? Image from yardenvy.com

Yes time goes forward, the direction of the hands on a clock is irrelevant to the direction of time, but if you put a sundial in the southern hemisphere, the shadow would rotate anti clockwise, hence the question.
Thanks for getting me to find out why I was confused. I was assuming all sundials pointed true North. I didn't realize in the southern hemisphere, they point true South, which now , I wonder why. See what you did? LOL
