Wagon, chariot, and carriage : symbol and status in the history of transport by Stuart Piggott ( Book )
11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents the technological and social history of early land transport -- horses, wagons, chariots and wheeled conveyances of all kinds -- including the history of vehicles and mounts as symbols of status and eminence, fit to be presented to potentates, or buried with them. The author assembles evidence from texts and archaeology in the form of a grand chronological narrative that touches on matters as diverse as the fodder of King Solomon's horses, the military significance of the cavalry stirrup and the role of women on horseback. It begins with the ox-wagon: humble enough to us but, over 4000 years ago, the very first luxury transport. During the second millennium BC it was supplanted -- in lands as far apart as Egypt, India and China -- by the horse-drawn chariot, not merely as an engine of war, but as a parade car for public display and hunting in royal parks. Yet the chariot itself was gradually displaced by the ridden horse, which became the cardinal attribute of monarchy and nobility. The image of the heroic ruler on horseback remained constant from Marcus Aurelius until the eve of the modern era, by which time the covered carriage and coach had long since assumed the mantle of prestige vehicles
