Abstract This study offers a brief overview of the main directions in the research into prehistoric wagon models and the appearance of wheeled vehicles. A new Early Bronze Age clay model found recently in Hungary is presented as part of the study. A discussion of the analogies to the model and the interpretation of its design are followed by a review of new European finds proving the early use of wagons. The dates strongly suggest that wheeled vehicles appeared more or less simultaneously in…

TLDR
Systematic comparisons of bone remodelling in those elements shown to be most directly affected by traction is used to determine the potential use of cattle as engines across this region throughout the period.
