A great book, recently published, dealling with the ancient use of
geodetic measures in stunning ways is "Civilization One." I will not
spoil it by telling you what it is about, except that it deals with
precise (very precise) measures used in the megaliths in the British
Isles and Brittany. Factors of these measures were used in Babylonia,
Greece, and, were shadowed in Egypt.
Heretofore, the megalith builders have been considered sort of
Neanderthal bumblers, but "Civilizaton One" shows that they were using
exquisitely measurements that are still found in the weights and
measures used today.
The string between the megalithic inch and weights and measures has
just been lost for a while.
