The Royal Egyptian cubit
The royal cubit has been an integral part of ancient Egyptian civilisation since its beginnings some 5000 years ago, making it one of the original measurements of historical mankind.
This carefully reconstructed cardboard replica offers history at your fingertips: The hieroglyphics of the divisions (finger, hand width, fist, span, upper arm, etc.) are intuitively legible even for the untrained, and a centimetre scale on the underside allows interesting comparisons of measurements. With extensive accompanying material on the historical background, this set offers history you can touch!
