WHEEL, 5200 YEARS

Let’s set the world in motion!

 
Once upon a time, many years ago, the first wooden wheel was made. It set the world in motion and encouraged progress and imagination. Thousands of years of inventiveness have not created anything to replace the wheel.

The invention of the wheel is the foundation of civilisation and culture. And the oldest wooden wheel with an axle, 5,200 years old, was discovered in Slovenia in the Ljubljana Marshes.
 
The wheel is making its first public appearance in the City Museum of Ljubljana at an exhibition which links ancient heritage and technological and scientific development with culture and art in an original manner and even escapes the limitations of our planet. The exhibition is open to the public on 24 May.
