A pair of socks from 400 BC and a linen bra that dates back to 1390 AD: Photos of the world's oldest examples of perfectly ordinary things
Did you know, a Sumerian beer recipe dating back to 3000 BC is the world's oldest written recipe? The beer is very strong and would contain chunks of bread floating around in it, if you made it today. The oldest shoe dates back 5,500 years and was found in Armenia. It's made from a single piece of oiled cow leather and bound with leather laces. These photos are of the most common things used everyday.
