Solar Chariot 3600 Years Old Unearthed in Saratov Region

The ancient find is a psalium, an element of harness. Experts state that it is just 200 years younger than the first chariot, invented in that very part of the continent, according to research.
      
      The psalium is made of a bulls hipbone. Amazing is the craftsmanship of the master who made this artifact, as well as the ideal state in which it has come down to us.
      
      The swastika was once a symbol of the solar chariot. It is corroborated by archeological finds unearthed not far from the Nizhnyaya Krasavka Settlement of the Saratov Region. The site of the ancient settlement of the Arians has been examined by students and professors for three years already. Within this period the expedition acquired around 20 000 artifacts of various value.
      
      The ancient site still harbours lots of mysteries, while its cultural layer has been studied by half only. But historians have little time left: every year certain part of the possible discoveries is lost irretrievably - the historically significant cliff is constantly undermined by water.
