Archaeologists have discovered what they think is the world's oldest pair of pants - dating back over 3,000 years.

The woolen pants were found in a grave in Yanghai, in China's Xinjiang region. The fabric has been carbon-dated to some time between the 13th and the 10th century BC, according to a research paper published in the scientific journal Quaternary International.
