      I think the best invention was the wheel. It is an oldie but a goody, as it meant that we could travel larger distances and it helped make the Industrial Revolution possible. It would be closely followed by the printing press, as this made it cheaper to print books and spread information in the age before the internet. Without it, books were restricted to the rich and powerful. It probably did more to free knowledge than anything else.
