Archaeologists in Italy have unveiled a ceremonial chariot they discovered near the ancient Roman city of Pompeii.
The four-wheeled carriage was found near a stable where three horses were uncovered back in 2018.
Experts believe it was likely used in festivities and parades, with the find described as "exceptional" and "in an excellent state of preservation".
The chariot was found in a double-level portico connected to stables at an ancient villa at Civita Giuliana, north of the walls of the ancient city.

A possible marraige chariot! Pompeii and Herculaneum are a gift that keep on giving. I'd love to visit these sites.
Yeah! Hope they manage to conserve it, it seems to have been affected by deterioration due to exposure.
