Origins of ordinary things: Socks

People wear socks to be warm, to be fashionable or to keep their feet from sweating and causing a foul smell in their shoes. Socks are thus multifunctional. It’s therefore a good thing that socks have been around for a long while. The earliest known surviving socks, according to Wikipedia the online encyclopedia, date as far back as 8th century BC.
