    This is incredible considering they probably travel from one end to the other just to take those measurements. Not to mention many parts of the country was still unexplored by man.

    Very interesting to see what people back then know and didn’t know. Coz today we know that the river nile was the longest river in the world, followed by the amazon, then yangtze.
