The foot was a common unit of measurement throughout Europe. The "foot" was a part of many local systems of units, including the Greek, Roman, Chinese, French, and English systems. It varied in length from country to country, from city to city, and sometimes from trade to trade. Because the length of a foot changed between person to person, measurements were not even consistent between two people, often requiring an average.
