Every thing we use or that surrounds our
reality has a long history. Scientists of course with
joy would have traced such a story, with each object and
certainly since its inception. However it is practically
is impossible. Therefore, if we are talking about the most ancient things, then we
we mean that the older ones are simply not found yet, and maybe
will never be discovered (in the title picture – Sinai

So, here are just some of the oldest, most interesting.
Near the Egyptian city of Luxor, archaeologists have found ancient

area more than three thousand years ago. And although this one is already a big one

which is about five hundred years old. He was found quite by accident in
Scottish medieval castle Stirling, which served as a place
residence and coronation of many kings.
It turns out that the royal persons were not averse, like the modern
people drive on the lawn ball. This unique item is found in

most likely, getting here during the game, and so hung a few
centuries, since for the owners of the castle he apparently did not represent
This ordinary ball is made from the bladder of a pig, in which
dry grass was stuffed. As you can see, the technology of making balls
It was far from modern, hence the quality is not so hot. But
Today, there would be quite a few hunters driving across the field this ancient
ball Well, I think it’s not difficult at all, it would be
