Archeologists find unscathed ceremonial chariot that survived the Mt Vesuvius eruption near Italy's Pompeii
The Archaeological Park of Pompeii called the chariot “an exceptional discovery” and said "it represents a unique find — which has no parallel in Italy thus far — in an excellent state of preservation.”
The ornate snack bar counter, decorated with polychrome patterns and frozen by volcanic ash, was partially exhumed last year but archaeologists extended work on the site to reveal it completely
The remains of the two victims, lying next to each other on their backs, were found in a layer of grey ash at least two meters deep
A volcanic eruption of the Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD destroyed the flourishing city of Pompeii.
The bones were found with an inscription that dates the eruption to later than previously thought.
