Chinese sheep drawn chariots!
« on: November 04, 2023, 04:40:51 PM »
Not kidding...

'Archaeologists have discovered the remains of what appears to be an ancient sheep-drawn chariot near the famous "Terracotta Army" in northwestern China.

The English-language website China Daily, which is owned by the Chinese Communist Party, reported that the remains were found in the "western tomb" at the site of Emperor Qin Shi Huang's mausoleum, a few miles northeast of the city of Xi'an in Shaanxi province.'

Yep, I'd buy them as well.
But they would have to be 15mm.

But are they sure they are sheep and not goats?!  If only bones, supposedly can't really tell.  Of course, if terracotta then pretty easy to identify.
