£15.00 / pack(s)

2 wheel Platform Carts were still being used at the very beginning of the Middle Bronze Age and pulled by 4 equids. However, the spoked wheel was now used replacing the solid wheel of the Early Bronze Age and making it an altogther faster vehicle.

As an alternative, this Cart can be used with just 2 equids, by cutting down the yoke pole to cover the necks of only 2 equids. Equids of this period were the same size as the Horses used to pull the early chariots proper.

The vehicle was still crewed by either a single javelinman or commander.

Such a vehicle was used in armies of the early Neo-Sumerian & Successor States, the early Amorite Kingdoms and early Elamites of the first half of the Middle Bronze Age.

Pack contains 1 Platform Cart, 4 Equids, 1 Javelinman and 1 alternative Commander
