Paper was invented in China sometime during the four centuries of the Han Dynasty, which began 200 years before the Common Era. At the time, paper was made from a blend of mulberry bark, hemp, and rags. A well-kept secret for a very long time, the recipe for paper finally made its way to Europe near the end of the 12th century. The Chinese were also the first to use paper money, and Marco Polo described this discovery—which he made while on his epic journey at the end of the 13th century—in his Description of the World.

From September 27th to September 28th 2014
