Rome: Archaeologists have unearthed a 2,000-year-old chariot in Pompeii, Italy

Archaeologists say it has been several weeks since the chariot was discovered on January 7.

Experts believe the chariot may have been used during festivals and gatherings.

Massimo Osanna, the outgoing director of the Pompeii archaeological site, said the carriage was the first of its kind discovered in the area, which had so far yielded functional vehicles used for transport and work, but not for ceremonies.
