How it used to beFrom ancient times until the Renaissance, there were no standardised measurement systems: the human body was used as a standard. The system of feet and inches originated from these simple and easily accessible body measurements. A foot was the average length of a human foot; an inch was the length of the top phalanx of a thumb; a yard was the length of a step or of a man’s outstretched arm measured from the middle of his body.The metric system was more abstract and came into wide use thanks to the French Academy of Sciences, which in 1791 defined a metre as 1/10,000,000 of the distance between the equator and the North Pole, measured via Paris.
