Pompeii: Archaeologists unveil ceremonial chariot discovery

Archaeologists in Italy have unveiled a ceremonial chariot they discovered near the ancient Roman city of Pompeii.

The four-wheeled carriage was found near a stable where three horses were uncovered back in 2018.

Experts believe it was likely used in festivities and parades, with the find described as "exceptional" and "in an excellent state of preservation".
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

This is certainly a great and interesting discovery. The only fly in the ointment is the designation. Surely four wheels is a cart or coach not a chariot. But clearly there is much still to be found at Pompeii, if it is not robbed out first. There is still the great mystery of why a precious chunky amethyst necklace was found in a sewer drain.
