By Chariot to the Next World

It could have been as early as 700 years before the birth of Jesus Christ that these horses were moved on to greener pastures – and no-one has laid eyes on them until now.

Archaeologists have painstakingly uncovered the almost-3,000-year-old remains of horses and wooden chariot in a Zhou Dynasty tomb in Luoyang, Henan Province, China.

The completed excavation unearthed four horse-and-chariot pits, dating back to as far as 770BC.
