You must have gotten a different puzzle than I did. I haven't
seen that one so far. Nonetheless, the Google Calculator knows
all. A score is 20, as in the Gettysburg address, "Four score
and seven years ago...". So four score is 80, and the Google
Calculator can take it from there:

80 scottish ells in hands

Good luck!

A Scottish ell is a medieval measurement used for cloth. The length
varied. At one time it was set at 37 Scottish inches.
More information on this page.

So assume you are asking: what is 80 Scottish ells measured in hands. 

Does by hand mean the measurement often used to measure horses.
?A unit of length equal to 4 inches (10.2 centimeters), used
especially to specify the height of a horse.?

I?ll let you do the maths.

Silas.  What is the shape?

A interseting viwepoinnt is the vantagepoint from which we last see
Silas.  What is the last thing we sww him touch?

During the action in the video, we see many things shattered and
destroyed, but what is it the ultimated be broken?

Thank you
