    To answer the initial question it wasn't "invented" like Edison invented the phone, because science, well, wasn't. It was more than likey developed over time, by many, many people of both sexes. It's not like someone sat down and said "hey, round things mean more result for the same amound of work!" No, there was no "Wheel R&D" department.

    It evolved over time to what we recognize as the wheel. No one person invented it.
