Did you know...

The appearance of the fence in human societies marked the transition from a pattern of looting nature to taking care of it. It was with devoted agriculture that fences came about. In Ancient Mesopotamia, Rousseau curiously alludes to the inventor of the fence - stating: "The first man who, having fenced in a piece of land, said "This is mine,"... that man was the true founder of civil society."

The fence helped institutionalize one of the most important elements of the social contract – the collective recognition of private property.
