Iron Age chariot found - complete with horses and driver!

Post by Grahame » Fri Oct 12, 2018 8:56 am

A chariot dating back to the Iron Age has been discovered in Yorkshire, making it the second time in two years there has been such a discovery.

The discovery was made in a small town with the name of Pocklington in Yorkshire on a construction site where homes were being built. Now work on the homes has been halted while a full excavation takes place starting from October. What is interesting about the find is that not only has a chariot being discovered but also the horse’s skeletons that pulled the chariot and the human remains of the driver....

The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it - Terry Pratchett.
