This cleverly laid out wooden carpenter's rule unfolds 2000 years of world history accurately and in sequence. Defined by individual events on one side, and epochs on the other it provides easy quick access to our most important historical dates. Here you can trace the decline into the Dark Ages, see highlights of the Renaissance and Reformation, review the various circumstances that triggered two calamitous world wars, follow the steps that lead to peace in each instance, and revisit exciting events such as Armstrong's walk on the moon in 1969 and the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. It's all here: 2,000 years of history presented in two meters of folding rule (which is also calibrated in inches and feet).
History by the Meter folding ruler is two meters long when open (81 inches open), and 9 inches closed.
