History of the plough – Origin, and evolution

Who invented the plough?

Again, it is from Mesopotamia where we have the first news of ploughs, more than five thousand years ago: a wood to which another vertical wood had been fixed and which was dragged by some pack animal.

Coupling that mechanism to an animal, allowed to do much more work than if a man did it with the strength of his arms. In Mesopotamia of the IV millennium BC, the first idea of a primitive plough without a front set is found.

Some Sumerian cylindrical seals and pictograms show a two-handed instrument supported by a transverse bar, the extremities of which end in a grating or blade, which has a rudder complemented with a deposit of seeds, and is pulled by oxen or zebu.
