    Why would an ancient Thracian people, the Getae, bury - 2,500 years ago - a chariot complete with horses standing upright?

    The discovery near the northern Bulgarian village of Svestari, has marveled the archeological team that made it.

    It is the oldest such find in the region.

    It is evidence of the lavish funeral rites afforded high status Thracians entering the after-life.
