In Pompeii archaeological area in southern Italy, a large ceremonial carriage with traces of iron, bronze and tin decoration, mineralized wood residues, ropes and other organic elements has been found. Pompeii is almost intact. Pompeii was buried after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 ad.

Pompeii Archaeological Park and the prosecutor’s office of Torre anuciata reported on Saturday that the discovery is of great value for understanding the ancient world. It took place in the suburban villa of civita Giuliana outside the city wall in the north of Pompeii, They are working together on this project, and also aimed at combating illegal robbery.

The carriage was parked “in good condition” on the porch of the villa, and in front of the stables, the remains of three horses have been found in 2018, including a horse wrapped and preserved with iron, beautiful bronze and tin decorations, mineralized wood residues and traces of organic elements.

“This is a remarkable discovery of the progress of knowledge in the ancient world,” said Massimo osanna, the outgoing director of the Archaeological Park, who stressed that “in Pompeii, the vehicles of the past, such as those of Casa de menandro, or the two carriages found in villa Arianna, have been found, but they are different from each other Civita Giuliana’s car. ” This is “a carriage, probably pirentum, not for daily use or agricultural transport, but accompanied by festivals, processions and community processions.”.

Pompeii continues to be surprised by its findings and will continue to do so for many years, with 20 hectares of land to be excavated. But most of all, it shows that it is possible to strengthen this, to attract tourists from all over the world, and at the same time to conduct research, training and research, “said culture minister Dario Franceschini. The Minister stressed that the cooperation of various departments “prevented the theft and illegal sale of this extraordinary discovery”.

The aim of the project is to “stop illegal immigrants from plundering cultural heritage by building several tunnels in the area in search of archaeological treasures” and “expose one of the most important villages in the territory of Vesuvius from being robbed”.
