Weights and Measures
This website is dedicated to the memory of the British Imperial Weights and Measures. I had to learn these at school, as part of my "tables". While metric measures are simpler, these old measures are still part of our language, and will always be part of our literature. Anyway, it will be hard for any of my generation to think naturally in anything else! I am happy to use metric units, yet it would be sad if these old units were forgotten. There are also some rough conversion guides. The U.S. Customary systems are similar to the British Imperial System, but I mention where they differ. Please email me (Jo Edkins) with any comments or any errors that you spot. I would like to acknowledge corrections, additions and improvements emailed to me by several people, who are helping to make this webpage what it is. And that is? Click below to find out!

47. Special Page On Anglo-saxon Units
Catalogue of traditional British units with historical notes. Proot/met/spvolas.html
How the system emerged, and its long history. Its (very) many different units. Whys and whens. Summary of this page :
  • mil (= 25.4 micron)
  • 1000 mils = 1 inch (= 25.4 mm exactly ) and 12 lines = 1 inch
    • 3 inches = 1 palm
    • 4 inches = 1 hand
    • 9 inches = 1 span
    • 18 inches = 1 cubit
  • 12 inches = 1 foot (= 0.3048 m exactly
  • 3 feet = 1 yard (= 0.9144 m exactly
  • 5.5 yards = 1 rod or pole or perch (= 5.0292 m) - see below
  • 40 rods = 1 furlong (= 201.168 m) know originally as "furrow long" - see "acre"
  • 8 furlongs = 1 mile (= 1609.344 m exactly or 1760 yards)
  • 3 miles = 1 league (= 4828.032 m)
Remarks : in Old England, the mile - derived from the Roman "mille passus" or 1000 double steps - was originally 5000 feet long as in the Roman definition (1 "passus" = 5 feet). Later, it took 5280 feet to accomodate exactly 8 furlongs, the most popular measure of the time. Actually, the usual happened : the foot and the rod went slowly their separate ways, being used by different industries (the weaver and the farmer ...) Things had to be straightened up and, as the foot and the rod were already entrenched, we find these strange figures : 16.5 ft/rod and 5280 ft/mile. This was voted by the House under Queen Elizabeth I in 1595.
It should be noted that the furlong comes from the Greek and Roman stadion , which they themselves inherited from more ancient times. It seems to be the optimal length for the traditional plough.

This question comes from U.S. students, who've been assigned by their teachers to find out. Many of the teachers think the answer is "Liberia and Burma" (make that Myanmar). Let's give Liberia and Myanmar a break! All countries have adopted the metric system, and most countries (if not the U.S.) have taken steps to eliminate most uses of traditional measurements. However, in all countries people still use traditional units sometimes, at least in colloquial expressions. Becoming metric is not a one-time event that has either happened or not. It is a process that happens over time. Every country is somewhere in this process of going metric, some much further along than others, but no country should forget its traditional units completely. At least, that's the philosophy of this dictionary! How can I convert from international units (IU) to milligrams or micrograms?

Presidential campaign could use some anti-metric mania UP TO NOW, all four of the recognized candidates for president Bush, Gore, Nader and Buchanan have had at least one need in common. They've all wanted for an issue that communicates real disdain for globalization without having any major consequences for peoples' pocketbook preferably something that resonates with the average person without scapegoating an industry or community that could fight back. Well, just in time for the major conventions, Britain has given us the perfect international equivalent to flag-burning. I'm referring, of course, to that heinous measure of tyranny, the metric system. Britain's leading supermarket chain, Tesco, declared this month that they would return to "imperial" weights and measures, i.e. good old-fashioned pounds, pints, inches, ounces and feet. The reaction from the British public and press has been hysterically positive. Tesco took this step in part because a survey of customers revealed that about nine out of 10 people still used the old-fashioned measurements in their heads. Tesco's decision follows in the wake of numerous small grocery store owners who have become national heroes by standing up to the European "food police" by defying what British press calls the latest "diktats" from Brussels, the capital of the European Union. Some British politicians, witnessing this unchoreographed national fervor, have been stoking the issue by encouraging other stores to follow suit.

The world is slowly being forced by governments, civil servants and multi-national industries into adopting the metric measurement system in place of the traditional systems which have been in use for centuries, for millenia in fact. The use of metric units has been legally acceptable in the UK since 1897 and in the USA since 1866 and yet the traditional system prevails in spite of this option. If metric were an improvement on traditional measurements then it would have been universally adopted long ago. The truth is that metric offers no advantages to people in their daily lives and will never be used unless it is forced upon us by criminalising the use of imperial measurement, something which is happening now in the UK and has happened in every other country where metric is used. In fact, the people of other countries have never voluntarily adopted metric, it has always been imposed upon them against their will by politicians and bureaucrats.
These few pages are offered by way of a defence against this compulsory conversion and against the criminalisation of ordinary people exercising their right to choose.
