The Simple Ideas Can Be the Best Ideas

What simple inventions have been very successful?

Many historians believe that the plow is the most important invention of all time. The plow played a pivotal role in changing civilization by enabling people to grow food and raise animals, freeing them from hunting and gathering.

The first plow, a simple stick pulled by a person, was first used in the Middle East 6000 years ago. As the plow spread to other regions, it was improved and oxen, horses, and finally, machines were used to pull it.

An effective and simple invention, the plow has remained virtually unchanged over the millennia.
