What Is the History of Shopping?

Answer

In ancient times, there was no money and people bartered goods, that they produced themselves. The first money was used about 2000 years ago. Markets and fairs were in operation from early times and people would shop at a weekly market, for goods, in nearby towns. Not only silk and spices were sold and exchanged, but plants, perfumed wood, rare animals, and ivory were exchanged for such western luxuries as amber, coral, gold, lengths of woollen and cotton cloth , and silver.
