CHARIOTS OF WAR



Chariot of war from ancient history.

This exhibit from Mohen-jo-Daro excavations is a toy version of the real thing. The warrior/ archer would stand inside the wooden coupe on wheels and let the chariot driver rush him to strategic points from where he would rain his arrows. From Egypt to Persia to India, these chariots have a unique similarity in design.
