1.2.1 The first carts
From time immemorial, man strived to make his life easier by transferring his work to others. That’s how the slave-owning system appeared ... but we are not talking about this era of development of civilization. The man wanted to move something very heavy, to move the load, using not one hundred people, but one person, who is equipped with some kind of mechanism that would help to cope with this task. When human strength was not enough, as a rule, animals, for example, horses were used. The horses turned out to be a very profitable mover - it took a little time water and hay for them to regain their strength, and the power reserve was enough for several miles. Later, people realized that riding on horseback was rather tiring and invented carriages. And everything would be fine, but a person constantly lacks something. Horse can cover a little distance, it moves slowly and with a little comfort. For even at first glance, well-protected carriages for the kings reminded of their leaks by the crunch of sand on the teeth of passengers. War was another important factor… Due to the fact that a horse can be killed in a battle, the question arose of replacing it with an inanimate object.
