The Wheel

The wheel was invented by the Sumerians around 3500 B.C.E. Also around 3200 B.C.E the wheel was used for a vehicle called a chariot. The wheel was the most important technology invented in Mesopotamia. The wheel was used whenever you wanted to get somewhere quicker than walking. Without the wheel we wouldn't be here today, that's why the wheel is so important.
