Lend Me a Hand...

Lend Me a Hand... Among the earliest measures developed by ancient man were those of length. Lacking formal standards, parts of the body became the basis for our earliest measurements. But not just anybody's parts were good enough. Generally, the part belonged to royalty. One of the first, if not the first, documented examples is the Egyptian cubit derived from the length of a Pharaoh's arm from his elbow to his outstretched fingertips. Since all Pharaohs were not created equal, by 2500 BC the cubit had been standardized in a royal master cubit made of black marble (about 52 centimeters in length). The cubit was subdivided into 28 digits (roughly a finger width) that were further subdivided into fractional parts, the smallest of these being just over a millimeter.
