The oldest known archeological fragments of paper date to 2nd century BCChinaPapermaking is considered one of the Four Great Inventions of Ancient China, and the pulp papermaking process is ascribed to Cai Lun, a 2nd century AD Han court eunuch.[2] With paper an effective substitute for silk in many applications, China could export silk in greater quantity, contributing to a Golden Age.

Paper spread from China through the Islamic world to medieval Europe in the 13th century, where the first water-powered paper mills were built.[3] In the 19th century, industrial manufacture greatly lowered its cost, enabling mass exchange of information and contributing to significant cultural shifts. In 1844, Canadian inventor Charles Fenerty and German F.G. Keller independently developed processes for pulping wood fibers.[4] This ended the nearly 2000-year exclusive use of pulped rags.[citation needed]

The English word paper comes from Greek term for an ancient Egyptianwriting material called papyrus, formed by beating strips of papyrus plants.
