HISTORY OF BAGS
Throughout most of history, both men and women used handbags for practical purposes. Ancient people used bags to carry weapons, tools, food, and flint (for fire-making). Otzi the Iceman, a 5,300-year-old, well-preserved mummy found in the Italian Alps in 1991 had a pouch attached to his belt containing flint, a drill, an awl, and dried fungus.
Egyptians of the Old Kingdom (2686 - 2160 BC) used double-handled bags made of linen and papyrus.
The Ancient Greeks carried byrsa, or coin purses hung from the belt which could be hidden in folds of clothing. Archaeologists discovered an ornamental leather purse in an Anglo-Saxon burial mound in Britain. Dated to 625 CE (AD), the bag had deteriorated but showed evidence of gilt, silver, and garnet ornamentation and probably hung from straps on a belt.
The purse still contained 40 gold coins. A Byzantine relic pouch from the 9th century was found at St. Michael's in Switzerland. Lined in red silk, the bag featured embroidered lions on a blue background.
