The history of fashion may date as far back as the Bronze Age, according to new research on the “Tarkhan Dress,” a garment believed to be the world’s oldest surviving woven piece of clothing. Excavated in 1913 from a First Dynasty Egyptian tomb at Tarkhan, the shirt was radiocarbon tested by University of Oxford researchers who say, with 95 percent accuracy, that the dress originated between 3482 and 3102 BC. The ancient v-neck linen “Tarkhan Dress” is currently on display at the University College London’s Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology.
