History of Accounting

The history of Accounting is one that takes us from modern times and stretches all the way back to the Greek and Roman times.  While today our accounting systems are made up of massive computer systems networked together, the origin of these systems actually started when man began counting with recorded symbols and numbers.  As the complexity of business and the advancement of writing occurred, so did the accounting systems.
