Thracian Chariot Unearthed in Serbia

Monday, December 09, 2013

PIROT, SERBIA—Archaeologist Zoran Mitic has uncovered a two-horse chariot estimated to be between 3,000 and 4,000 years old. “Judging by the manner of burial, I guess that it was a member of [the] Thracian people, not ordinary, but someone who occupied an important place in the hierarchy, due to the fact that the chariot is decorated with beautiful bronze applications,” he said.
