Hi Rod

I'm Jim Wakefield aka molder and I have been looking at ancient measures for 20 or so years. Have come to the conclusion that the imperial system of measures is a part of an ancient measuring system originating somewhere around the Indus Valley 4000 years ago. This old system has a metric component that may have been the precursor to our present metric system.
