Mail was invented some time in the mid 1st millenium BC, but it is unknown where and by whom it was first used. Several patterns of linking the rings together have been known since ancient times, with the most common being the 1-to-4 pattern (where each ring is linked with four others). In Europe, the 1-to-4 pattern was completely dominant.
