Tents date back to ancient times…

Apparently, as long as there have been settlements, there have been tents. There are rumors on Google Searches of discoveries dating back to 40,000 BCE in Russia, but they are also documented in the bible, were used by the ancient Roman military, and yurts are traced back at least 3000 years by Herodutus. They could be made of straw, hemp, animal hair and leather.  Many innovations over the years have been inspired by the military, since tents are portable and can shelter soldiers on the move.
