It’s been almost half a Millenium since the oldest direct handwritten news sheets circulated widely in Venice in 1566. Newspapers, in their modern form, started appearing in Germany in the 16th century. They were printed, dated, appeared at regular and frequent publication intervals, and included a variety of news items.

Although today, the written media does not have the same popularity as in the old days, newspapers continue to feed the hungry minds of readers around the world.
