    Fascinating stuff. It's also wild that so many bones and artifacts can so easily be swallowed by the desert for so long.

    Very cool, I've been intrigued by the discover of Chariot Burials in Bulgaria. beofre the fall of the Iron curtain, only two roman chariots were known, since 1989 over 200 have been discoved, some full blown state carriages , with teams of 8 horses and decorated in gold, silver and bronze.
