The September/October issue of "Archaeology" magazine has an article about Thracian chariots found in Bulgaria.

The chariots date from between the 1st and 3rd century AD, exemplifying that Thracian traditions were kept even when Rome ruled their homeland.

The chariots were found with between 3 to 8 horses sacrificed on the same place.

Generally the "owner" of the chariot was buried in a nearby mound.

It is a very interesting article not to be missed.

All that is missing is a good artist representation of such chariots.

Best regards
