According to an announcement from the Pompeii Archaeological Park on Saturday, excavators found that the bronze and tin chariots were almost intact, with wooden wreckage and rope imprints.
The outgoing park director Massimo Osanna said: “This is an extraordinary discovery of our knowledge of the ancient world.” “Vehicles used for transportation have been discovered in Pompeii in the past, such as Maynard. The vehicle of the former residence, or the two chariots found in Villa Ariana, but not like the chariot of Civita Giuliana.”
This villa is located north of Pompeii in Civita Giuliana. It has a stable horse. The remains of three horses were found in 2018, including a used horse. The chariot was found in a double porch, which may face the yard, not far from the stable.
The Pompeii Archaeological Park called the discovery “extraordinary” and “added an extra element to the history of this house.”
The carriage was decorated with bronze plates and red and black wooden boards. There are various stories engraved on bronze and tin medallions on the back. The ceiling of the villa is deciduous English oak, a material often used in Roman times, and it was carefully removed for further research.
The excavator first discovered part of the cultural relics from volcanic materials on January 7. A few weeks later, the entire tank was discovered. Although part of the room containing the tank collapsed, it was miraculously intact.

Italian Minister of Culture Dario Franceschini said at a press conference in Pompeii on Friday: “All the discoveries of Pompeii are amazing, and it will be This continues to be the case throughout the year, and there are still 20 hectares of land to be excavated.” “But most importantly, it shows that price increases can be achieved and tourists from all over the world can be attracted. At the same time, research, education and research are ongoing… …”
The park considers chariots to be used for ceremonial purposes, such as to accompany celebrations, parades and parades. Park officials said that this type of chariot had never been found in Italy before, but was similar to the discovery of Thrace in northern Greece.
Pompeii is one of Italy’s most famous tourist attractions and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Since Mount Vesuvius erupted and covered the city with ash and pumice about 2000 years ago, most of the Greco-Roman city is still covered with debris. And experts are still discovering some clues that provide clues to the life of the city while it is in operation.
In recent years, looters have stolen from the villa several times. Since January, Torre Annunziata’s prosecutor’s office, officials at the headquarters of the Cultural Conservation Headquarters in Caribinieri, Naples, and Torre Annunziata of the Caribinieri Group Investigators from Torr Annunziata Command have been helping to protect the tank since January.
The current excavation work aims to protect one of the most important villas in the area from predators. The predators developed a complex system consisting of more than 80 tunnels with a depth of more than 5 meters, looting and partially destroying certain areas of the area.
At a press conference in Pompeii on Friday, the chief prosecutor of Torre Annunziata Nunzio Fragliasso said: “Fighting against the robbery of archaeological sites inside and outside the ancient city of Pompeii is undoubtedly one of the main goals of the office.”
