TBT – History of the Abacus

TBT – History of the Abacus

I can’t cover the history of the abacus in one post; not even Fred’s head can’t cover the history of the abacus – he passes us off to a great website with lots of history and information.

My favorite part of the history page, http://www.ee.ryerson.ca:8080/~elf/abacus/history.html, is the fact our Cranmer Abacus is more Japanese than Chinese. Many people think the opposite.
