Scientists are Still Debating When People Started Wearing Clothes
According to archaeologists and anthropologists, the earliest clothing likely consisted of fur, leather, leaves, or grass that were draped, wrapped, or tied around the body.
Knowledge of such clothing remains inferential, since clothing materials deteriorate quickly compared to stone, bone, shell and metal artifacts.
Archeologists have identified very early sewing needles of bone and ivory from about 30,000 BC, found near Kostenki, Russia in 1988.Dyed flax fibers that could have been used in clothing have been found in a prehistoric cave in the Republic of Georgia that date back to 36,000 BP.
Scientists are still debating when people started wearing clothes.
Ralf Kittler, Manfred Kayser and Mark Stoneking, anthropologists at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, have conducted a genetic analysis of human body lice that suggests clothing originated quite recently, around 170,000 years ago.
Body lice are an indicator of clothes-wearing, since most humans have sparse body hair, and lice thus require human clothing to survive.
Their research suggests the invention of clothing may have coincided with the northward migration of modern Homo sapiens away from the warm climate of Africa, thought to have begun between 50,000 and 100,000 years ago.
However, a second group of researchers using similar genetic methods estimate that clothing originated around 540,000 years ago (Reed et al. 2004. PLoS Biology 2(11): e340).
For now, the date of the origin of clothing remains unresolved.
The home improvement chains have also benefited from a housing market that is beginning to recover. 
Among major cities, home values are up the most in a broad band from Texas up to the Northwest, The Washington Post reports in an in-depth look at the uneven nature of the housing market recovery.
Nearly a decade removed from the 2008 recession, many companies are focusing more intensely on the growing generation of younger consumers beginning to considering buying a home, says Paula Rosenblum, managing partner at RSR Research, which focuses on the retail industry.
