In 2006, archaeologists discovered the world’s earliest known artificial eyeball. It was uncovered while they were searching the necropolis of Shahr-i-Sokhta in the Sistan desert on the Iran-Afghan border. It’s believed to be dated between 2900 and 2800BCE and was made with bitumen paste and covered with a thin ayer of gold and an engraving on the face to represent the iris. On the sides was a small hole through which thread could hold the eyeball in place.
