It's actually part of a vertebra of something. They added (the museum) wooden dowels to the "car wheels" .. making me wonder just how it was placed when they found it. The wheels also appear to be weathered bone (sort of. I'm not immediately certain where the bone would have been cut to give this shape... it's not femur slices, for instance.)


You know it does look a bit like a vertebra (you paid attention in your Physical Anthropology 200 class I see) I wonder if the 'chariot' is a museum fantasy or archaeologist's over interpretation of the data? Cannot tell unless we could see the actual item.

Good catch Ph.D to be
