HI Jim,
John Michell's prejudice against the modern Metric system is very well known and rightly so as to it's actual use in ancient Metrology, but if the dimensions of the Earth were in fact known long ago, it wouldn't matter how they were expressed and would find equivalency in any metric system later on. However, knowing that ancient metrics have an evolution just like any other phenomena, it stands that there would be an equivalent system surviving as the English Metric so called, but it is more to my research originating far from the shores of England back to the earliest era of grain cultivation and subsequent calculation of harvests for distribution. Where would that original source be now anyone? Hint, the late metrologist L C Stecchini noted that usage of metrics based on English standards were still to be found as far as Russia up until the modern era.

Best regards,

Stephen
