This is a major discovery on a site that has been known for a long time. A new treasure is added to the already immense treasures of the ancient site of the Neapolitan region. The archaeological park of Pompeii announced this Saturday the discovery of a large ceremonial float, found in excellent condition, just a few hundred meters north of the famous Italian cultural site. “A large ceremonial chariot with four wheels, with its iron elements, beautiful bronze and pewter decorations, mineralized wood remains, imprints of organic elements (from ropes to the remains of vegetable decorations), was found almost intact ”, indicates a press release from the archaeological park.

Archaeologists unearthed a series of 119 Aztec skulls during excavations in the basements of Mexico City, Mexico. They were part of a tower at the heart of a ceremonial center discovered a few years ago. This type of construction was intended to celebrate life.

The chariot was discovered in a porch in front of a stable where, already in 2018, the remains of 3 equines, including a harnessed horse, had been found, the statement said. This discovery was made in Civita Giuliana, an area located a few hundred meters north of the Pompeii archaeological park. It was carried out as part of the fight against grave robbers, particularly active in this area of ​​Italy, full of archaeological treasures yet to be discovered.

In Germany, seven companies brought in just 1.06 billion euros - the lowest level since the financial crisis. That should change fundamentally in the coming year.

Nothing like the chariot of Civita Giuliana

“It is an extraordinary discovery for the knowledge of the ancient world. In the past we have found in Pompeii transport vehicles (…) or two tanks (…) but nothing similar to the Civita Giuliana tank ”, rejoiced the outgoing director of the archaeological park, Massimo Osanna, quoted in the press release. .

“It is a ceremonial float (…) not used daily or for agricultural transport, but to accompany moments of celebration for the community, parades and processions, ”added the expert. Like most Italian cultural sites, Pompeii, buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79, has remained closed in recent months due to the Covid pandemic and only reopened on January 18. In 2019, the site had welcomed more than 3.9 million visitors, making it the third most visited site in Italy after the Colosseum in Rome and the Uffizi Museum in Florence. No doubt the chariot will be one of the future attractions of eternal Pompeii. X1
