Iron Age Horse Burial Discovered in North Yorkshire

Experts are investigating the ceremonial burial site of four horses dating to the 1st century C.E. discovered recently in North Yorkshire, England.

The four horses were buried nose-to-tail in Nosterfield Quarry, near Ripon.

"Ritual multi-burials of horses are rare, and a find of this nature helps us to know more about the Iron Age people who lived in this area 2,000 years ago," said archaeologist Mike Griffiths.
