Of I course, they wear them to cover baldness. The only men who wear wigs as part of their official costume are certain people in England: the speaker of the house of commons, the clerks of parliament, the lord chancellor, and the judges and lawyers in a courtroom. Nobody knows exactly when men first had the idea of wearing wigs, but it was a long, long time ago. Did you know that mummies have been found in Egypt with wigs on their heads? And in ancient Greece wigs were used by men and women both. The idea of wearing wigs among these people probably came from Persia, so the custom was even older there. The ancient Romans were great wearers of wigs. The women, of course, made quite a fashion of wigs, and they even imported golden hair from Germany for their "blond" moods! The first wigs worn by men were really tight fur caps that were supposed to look like hair. Soon this gave them the idea of making wigs out of false hair, that is the hair of another person. In more recent times, wigs as a fashion started in France. In 1620, an abbe called La Riviere appeared at the court of Louis XIII in a wig that gave him the appearance of having long fair hair. It so happened that the king I became bald at an early age, so I four years later he also began to wear a wig. This started the fashion, and it spread not only through France but through all of Europe. In England, Charles II started the wearing of wigs in that country. Later on, under Queen Anne, wigs became such an adornment that they covered the back and the shoulders and flated down over the chest! At one time, in England, mem bers of every profession wore some kind of wig. Then gradually, doctors, soldiers, and clergymen began to give them up. The bishops were the last to stop wearing wigs in England. And today, as mentioned above, only a few officials still wear them. FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1. Why is an apple like a book? 2.
