Bronze Chariot Found in Bulgaria..

This is so interesting, I had to share with those that didn't read about it..
A village east of Sofia, Bulgaria, called Karanovo is where this chariot was found..It dates back to the end of the second century A.D..
It is an elaborately decorated 1,800 year old chariot, sheathed in bronze.. Next to it was an animal skeleton. Here are a few pictures for all to enjoy..Check out Yahoo.news.com for the whole story.

Bulgaria has a special place in our hearts..We have friends there and attended their wedding a few years ago..Hope you all enjoy this story..


Till next time, keep looking up..
