Anyone who has ever been to school and had to write a project on the Egyptians will think that paper has developed from papyrus, a paper-like substance made in Ancient Egypt from the pith of the papyrus plant. They would all be wrong.
The paper making process was in fact developed in China in the early 2nd century AD, although specimens of paper have been found to go as far back as the 2nd century BC. Paper is used in many different ways around the world, mostly for writing and printing but also used for wrapping, packaging and as a food ingredient in Asian cultures, like rice paper for example.
Paper is used by many people every day, in notebooks, for receipts, business cards, calendars, envelopes and many more items. Without paper our lives would be very different.
