Roman chariot with horses was discovered in Croatia

Roman chariot with horses was discovered in Croatia
Franjo Sorčik/Novosti.hr

An unbelievable discovery occurred in eastern Croatia, in Stari Jankovci, near Vinkovci. Archaeologists found the remains of a two-wheeled chariot and two horses harnessed.

An amazing discovery was in a large funeral chamber, 40 meters in diameter and one meter high. According to specialists, this extraordinary burial was certainly founded by a rich Roman family and was part of the custom of the inhabitants of ancient Pannonia. Preliminary analysis of the metal and inventory suggests that the tomb is dated to the 3rd century CE.

Scientists plan to learn more about the animals themselves buried in the grave: where they came from, how they were fed.

According to the plans of local authorities, the chariot and other objects will be on display in the museum in Vinkovci – the city where Emperor Valentinian and Valens were born.
