A princely tomb in central Italy

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Archaeologists have found the remains of an entire iron-wheeled war chariot in a newly discovered Iron Age tomb in central Italy, a new study finds.

"The lavish tomb is also brimming with other riches, including a stash of weapons, a bronze helmet and vessels made of bronze and clay.

"The body of the chariot’s owner, however, is long gone."

"At Corinaldo, near the Adriatic coast in northern Marche, the discovery and excavation of a high-status tomb dating to the seventh century BC has illuminated wide-ranging aspects of Piceni Culture in this part of central Italy, while also highlighting the growing symbiosis between academic research and development-led archaeology in heritage conservation and planning processes throughout Italy."

That's quite the find. Shame the body's missing. It would have been interesting to get a glimpse of what this person might have looked like.
