J Greenwich （格林威治）is on the River , five miles from the middle of London , and its history is two thousand years old . The first English people were fishermen there , and they named the place Greenwich , meaning "green village". Later the English kings and queens lived at Greenwich in their beautiful places . The name of the earliest palace was Placentia . Its windows were made of glass ---the first in England .Henry VIII lived there . He knew that England must be strong at sea . So he started two big ship-yards (船坞）at Greenwich ,and for 350 years the ships which were made there were the best in the world . But trouble was coming to Greenwich . In 1649 , a war started in England and for eleven years there was no king . The men who had worked for him at Placentia decided to live the place themselves . They sold all its beautiful things , and bought small pieces of the palace garden with money . Finally , the war ended and King Charles II came back . But Placentia was falling down . So King Charles built a new and bigger palace , which is now open to the public . At this time , Charles was worried about losing so many of its ships at sea : their sailors did not know how to tell exactly where they were . So in 1675 , Charles made John Flamsteed , the first astronomer (天文学家）in England , try to find the answer . Flamsteed worked in a new building on the high ground in Greenwich Park . From it with a telescope which he made himself , Flamsteed could look all round the sky . And he did , night after night , for twenty years . Carrying on Flamsteed's work a hundred years later , an astronomer called Harrison finally made a clock which told
the time at sea , and helped sailors to know where they were .You can see Harrison's
clock , still working , in Greenwich's museum of the sea . Because of Flamsteed's
work , every country in the world now tells its time by Greenwich time .
