Scruples, Drachms, and Grains

When: Jan. 21-March 11 2016

Through March 11. Units of measure go way back in time. People have always needed to trade and people have always needed to be sure they are getting a fair and honest trade. Measures and lengths first came from the forearm, hand and finger. Seeds, grains and stones were first used as weights. Then came more exact measurements.
