Abstract
Marstrand's Theorem is a one of the classic results of Geometric Measure Theory, amongst other things it says that fractal measures do not have density. All methods of proof have used symmetry properties of Euclidean space in an essential way. We will present an elementary history of the subject and state a version of Marstrand's theorem which holds for spaces whose unit ball is a polytope.
