were it all started

== Paleolithic history ==
Because animal skins and vegetable materials decompose readily there is no archeological evidence of when and how clothing developed. However, recent studies of human > suggest that clothing may have become commonplace in human society around 72,000 years ago. If that is correct, it would mean that for around 128,000 years and the majority of anatomically modern human history, humans may not have worn clothes. Some anthropologists believe that and even may have used animal skins for protection placing the origins of clothing at perhaps a million years or more.Ancient Egypt ==
Fashions in did not change much over the millennia. The ancient Egyptians wore the minimum of clothing. Men were commonly bare chested and barefoot. They wore a tunic around their waist. Women commonly wore a loose draped or see-through fabric. Women entertainers performed naked. Children went without clothing until >, at about age 12.Though the minimum amount of clothing was the norm in ancient Egypt, the custom was viewed as humiliating by some other ancient cultures. For example, the records: "So shall the ''king of the Assyrians lead away the prisoners'' of Egypt, and the captivity of Ethiopia, young and old, ''naked and barefoot, with their buttocks uncovered to the shame of Egypt''simmilar images occur on many bas-reliefs, also from other empires.
