A short history of materials used for writing

historywritingmaterials
I was intrigued by a mind map made by Francesco DellaValle entitled Paper and its ancestors.
Francesco agreed that the ordering could be improved, so I made this mind map to improve the ordering (and not to give a complete history of materials people used throughout the ages to write on).
The ordering

  1. the mind map is chronological ordered
  2. the taxonomic ordering is based on material

The later seems logical because of the main title chosen by Francesco.
