2. The History of Feng Shui

Dwellings and graves dating from 4000 BC contain elements of feng shui. Around 3,500 years ago, people began developing techniques and instruments, and placing buildings, based on the stars. Early instruments included astrolabes, used to measure the position of the stars. The magnetic compass was invented in China around 206 BC and has been used in feng shui ever since. Feng shui compasses, known as Luo-Pan, have details around the edges that help practitioners place buildings and other objects.
