Answer

The Rules of Football which were written in England 1863. Much of that applies today.

Back in the 1800s people were allowed to push and hack playing football. They also used a different kind of ball then we use today.

The same way it is made today- by milking a cow or goat. In the 1800s, they were milked by hand, today that is done by a milking machine. But milk is still made by cows and goats.
