A few days ago, in Italy they made a find that has impressed both archaeologists, anthropologists and historians as well as the general public alike. Since near the buried city of Pompeii, they gave with a ceremonial carriage that was preserved in a great way, surprisingly supporting the lava of the eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 after Christ. A four-wheeled vehicle made of iron, bronze and tin that was seen in an old villa in Civita Giuliana.
Previously, other vehicles from that time and from that place had been found that in their time were used to transport work, but a ceremony carriage had never been discovered. For what has become the first of its kind found to date, and that during the geopolitical rule of Rome, its function was to accompany and elegantly transport during parades and processions. Adding this discovery to so many others that have been found well preserved in the city that once housed approximately 13. 000 people and that after a volcanic eruption, ended up under ash, pumice and dust.
It has been calculated that the force of the eruption of Vesuvius was equivalent to the explosion of several atomic bombs, but even so, objects such as this ceremonial carriage have been preserved in an impressive way . And there is still much more to discover, because in Pompeii only 2/3 of the ancient city of 66 hectares have been found and investigated, starting this archaeological record after they were seen in the 16th century for the first time its runes , while the excavations began in the year 1750.
“This is an extraordinary discovery that advances our understanding of the ancient world ”
– said Massimo Osanna , outgoing director of the archaeological site of Pompeii, as stated Day-to-day Mail –
“A unique find, without precedents in Italy ”
