model of Ancient Roman wheel plough
Model of Ancient Roman wheel plough
This is a representative type of the implement in use prior to the Christian Era, some of which may still be in use in the less developed countries. The early farming tools were often constructed from a suitably shaped branch of a tree, probably fitted with an ox-horn. These ploughs are unable to turn a furrow slice, but stirred the soil in a manner resembling the modern cultivator tine.
Plough of roman origin, this model was probably used for road construction rather than oil cultivation.
