It is said that in the past, the Assyrians were people that were constantly being attacked in their own territory.
As a method of defense, they had to come up with a number of inventions that would help them overcome the attacks of nearby civilizations.
That is how they become skilled warriors. Among their inventions, we have the following:
BATTERING RAM: is a machine used to break open fortification walls or doors.
SLINGS: is a projectile weapon typically used to throw a blunt projectile such as a stone.
HELMETS AND ARMOR: protective covering used to prevent damage from being inflicted.
The above inventions suggest that the Assyrians were devoted to the art of war. Their contributions have had a great influence in our modern civilizations, due to the fact that many of the equipments used to fight in war nowadays, have their bases on the Assyrian inventions.
