People have been making rope for tens of thousands of years. Archaeologists have discovered a piece that dates back 50,000 years ago inside a cave in modern France. When put under a micrograph, its construction became apparent. The Neanderthal weaver twisted a few fibers together to create a single strand, then twisted three such strands together.
This exact construction technique remains in use today. In fact, 3-strand twisted rope is not just the oldest rope construction technique, but the most commonly used design. It's many applications make it an obvious choice for general purpose use, as opposed to more intricate and expensive types of rope. Also, it is the easiest type of rope to splice, and it has excellent shock absorption due to stretch capability.
