From the FCS Book of Little-Known Facts (carriage burial)

The remains of a Thracian carriage and two horses that were buried upright.

It’s rare that animals are preserved as well as these are, and it’s honestly fascinating to see what life was like in 2,500 years ago. These incredible remains of a complete Thracian carriage and two horses were discovered in a Thracian tomb in a village called Svestari in north-east Bulgaria. The horses and carriage, which were found upright were buried alongside a collection of various artifacts, which means that the horses were buried alive. It’s not clear exactly who this tomb of riches was for, but they must have been a big deal in Bulgaria. Too bad about these horses though.
