The first constitution believe it or not was made in Medina, Saudi Arabia by the Prophet Muhammed (SAW)
There are many records of ancient written law (dating back to 2300 BC). However, historians agree that Agreements and Constitutions of Laws and Freedoms of the Zaporizian Host, written in 1710, is the earliest constitution that satisfies our modern understanding the the word.

So, the Zaporozhian-Ukrainian Republic was the first country in the world to have a written constitution.

Probably the first time people decided to work together rather than simply as competing individuals there emerged a kind of unwritten constitution, determining who did what and who took care of the weak and defenceless who could not contribute. Once leaders emerged in communities there would also emerge unwritten compacts between the leader and the followers. As to when any of the early constitutions were put in writing, that would be centuries or millennia later. But do not underestimate the force of unwritten constitutions - the United Kingdom, in theory at least, has no written constitution, but an abundance of statute law and common law defining powers and limits on powers, and rights and limits on rights.
