To add an extra layer of confusion, the modern mile is 5280 feet long, not 5000 or 4860. This is due to a translation problem. At the end of the 16th century, the English government were quite fond of the furlong (a measurement based on the daily plowing potential of a group of oxen). They therefore decided that a mile should be defined by furlongs, and that it would comprise eight. This made for some messy math/s, as a furlong measured 660 feet, so the mile got stretched out to 5280 feet in order to accommodate its fashionable pal, the furlong.The Roman mile, the total distance of the left foot hitting the ground 1000 times, was about 4860 feet in today's imperial units, but would have apparently been around 5000 Roman feet back in the day. Some people attribute this change to increasing foot size over the years, though it could just as well be a margin of error; we now have accurate measuring equipment, whilst 2000 years ago people were literally measuring.
