The Wheels of War
Written and narrated by Magnus Magnusson
The wheel was invented about 5,000 years ago and one of its first uses was in warfare. Last summer two archaeologists with teachers and pupils at St John's Comprehensive School, Epping, built and tested a full-size reproduction of a solid-wheeled Sumerian battle waggon, to try to answer the many questions about its effectiveness as a war-machine - questions which no amount of theorising could solve.
