Archaeologists have made "unparalleled" discoveries of a spectacular Iron Age chariot in East Yorkshire - The Inquisitr News

The horses, which were tied to the Iron Age chariot in East Yorkshire, were buried in a position that made them look "as if they were rising from the grave".

East Yorkshire archaeologists have recently made a so-called "unparalleled" discovery after discovering an Iron Age car. The horses were still attached and buried in a position that made them jump almost out of the grave.

Loud Yorkshire Post, The Iron Age car was discovered in Pocklington on the construction site of Persimmon Homes. The horses were carefully set up, the hooves and hind legs bent so that they looked ready to get up and drive in tow with the car as they traveled to the hereafter that awaited them.

In addition to the horses, a man who was about 40 years old at the time of his death was found in the car in which he was buried and rolled up in the fetal position. But he too, like the horses, was buried as if he were ready to lead the horses "into every future life."
