Human Clothing Date of Origin - 217 LexiLine Journal

ot being particularly fashionable myself, I occasionally enjoy
glimpsing into the world of fashion at the FeedRoom
http://www.feedroom.com
which I highly recommend for top news stories in other fields as
well.

Speaking of fashion,
when did our "threads" first originate?
Since when do humans first wear clothes at all.

Recall, I claim that the word AFRIK,
as an old term for Africa,
comes from an Indo-European term
e.g. Latvian PLIK
meaning "nude, without clothes",
i.e. the description of Africa as the land of the people who wear no
clothes, as is still the case in parts of Africa today.

Scientists studying the genetics of lice - especially the type that
breeds in human clothing - have discovered that the genetic break
between these "clothes-adapted" lice and those lice which are at
home in human hair (they requiring no clothing) took place around
70,000 years ago. This genetic evidence also matches the human
genetic evidence which indicates that humans first came "out of
Africa" into cooler regions at about this same time period,
suggesting that clothing was a matter of adaptation to colder
temperatures due to human migration northward.
