An ornate Roman chariot has been discovered “almost intact” near Italy’s buried city of Pompeii, the archaeological park announced on Saturday, calling it a discovery with “no parallel” in the country.

The four-wheeled processional carriage was found in the portico to a stable where the remains of three horses were unearthed in 2018, including one still in its harness.


Pompeii was buried in boiling lava when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, killing between 2,000 and 15,000 people.

That's freaking awesome. I want to go there someday.

Definitely awesome! This rivals the recent discovery of an old dog bone found on west coast beating the record for oldest dog bones discovered so far. Seems man had a domesticated best friend way back when traversing the lands going back farther in time than we knew. Now this chariot -completely intact! I'd love to see the excavation site as well!

Wonder if they'll find Bernice that with Paul and Agrippa

Would like to see the rest of it when they get done dusting it off.
