Various forms of adhesive have been in use since 72,000 BC as evidenced by them being found in the Sibudu Cave of South Africa and dating back to that era. Today, adhesives have advanced far beyond the natural glues found in the Sibudu Cave of plant gum and red ochre, and even the more complex adhesives used 6,000 years ago used on ceramics when someone no doubt carelessly dropped on or knocked it off the end table.
