In Italy, archaeologists have unveiled a ceremonial chariot they discovered near the ancient Roman city of Pompeii.

The chariot was found at an ancient villa at Civita Giuliana, north of the walls of the ancient city.

Experts believe it was likely used in festivities and parades, with the find described as "exceptional" and "in an excellent state of preservation".

Pompeii, engulfed by a volcanic eruption from Mount Vesuvius in AD79, is an archaeological treasure trove.
