The compass was invented around 206BC during the Chinese Han Dynasty and Tang Dynasty. It was over a thousand years later when it was used for maritime navigation. Then add another thousand years and we are pretty much up to today. The compass has been with us for thousands of years, and in today's world they are not a much needed tool to navigate the globe as they once were, but they are still very much in demand.\nOur personalised compasses are some of the best selling products on the website.
