  • Sumerian Chariot

    Hello
    The Sumerian armies introduced many features lately to be found in other armies.
    One of those was the war chariot.
    However the model depicted in Sumerian art and its role in war is very controversial.
    Many scholars claim that this device could not have been use in war (the way we imagine chariots do) because it did not posses the necessary characteristics to do it;.
    Many believe that this chariot was in fact a “battle-taxi”, a prestigious form of transportation for the nobleman who would do battle. Almost like a modern commander arriving at the battlefield in a limousine.
