Iron Age chariot & horse skeletons unearthed in Yorkshire, England

Post Neon Knight on Sun 7 May - 22:52

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4363618/Iron-Age-chariot-two-horse-Yorkshire.html

An Iron Age chariot and two horse skeletons have been unearthed at a Yorkshire building site. The 2,500-year-old remains have been dubbed by experts as 'highly unusual'. The find, described as being of 'international significance', is the first of its kind in the last 200 years and one of only 26 ever excavated in the UK . . .

Paula Ware, from MAP Archaeological Practice, told BBC News that the find could shed more light on Iron Age burial rituals. She said that the positioning and close proximity of the horses to the chariot suggests they played a key role in the burial ceremony. Ms Ware added that the 'rare discovery' would help researchers better understand the Arras culture - a group of people who lived in the region at the time  . . .

Many people of the period were farmers, growing growing wheat, barley and beans along with animals such as cattle, sheep and pigs. The Arras culture is associated with east Yorkshire and is defined by its strange burial practices, which include burials in round and square graves. Burials with chariots were reserved for the rich and powerful members of Arras society. Much about Iron Age culture is not known because cremation burials were popular at the time, so Arras burials offers a unique insight into Iron Age life.
