Summary
The mile gets its name from the term mille passus, which means "a thousand paces." The abbreviation for pound (lb.) comes from the Latin libra pondo. Feet, pounds, quarts, miles: these are words we use every day. But where did they originate, and what do they actually mean?
Summary
Delves into the past to show where words such as pound, quart, feet, yard, mile, and other terms of measurement originated and why
