HNW - knitting needle question

Does anyone know when knitters stopped using four needles and started to use
two the way we do now? I've been hit with that question in Meridies, and I
can't answer it. I know four-needle isn't exactly dead because I have a
five-needle set from Germany. I wonder why people started to use two?
Answers, anyone?
