Ancient chariot and two horse skeletons discovered

Roman charioteer (Auriga) driving a two-horse chariot

An Iron Age chariot and two horse skeletons have been unearthed at a Yorkshire building site. The 2,500-year-old remains have been dubbed by experts as 'highly unusual'. The find is the first of its kind in the last 200 years and one of only 26 ever excavated in the UK.  It has been described as a find of 'international significance'. The peculiar remains were found at a new housing development in Pocklington, East Yorkshire, which has forced planners to hold off on their builds. Archaeologists working on the site say that the remains may link to a strange human burial ritual.  March 30

The chart for the solar eclipse of February 26 at Pocklington, East Yorkshire, is shown here. Notice that it is conjunct Neptune  and  is anchored by hard aspects to the  Jupiter-Uranus (lucky break) opposition on the meridian axis. The eclipse  was conjunct kappa Pegasi, in the forefoot of the Flying Horse Pegasus. The stars here were  part of the asterism Hiu-Liang, in ancient China, which ruled graves, tombs, mausoleums. Also Neptune [10pi]  is conjunct zeta Aquarii [9pi]. This was a star in the Arabic lunar mansion Al Sa'd al Ahbiyah, “The Lucky Star of Hidden Things or Hiding Places”.Further, the eclipse and Neptune are in trine aspect to the TNPs Kronos-Hades which are placed among stars of Auriga, the Charioteer.

Progressing the eclipse chart to March 30 brings the descendant to a conjunction with the eclipse thereby triggering the configuration.

Finally, in passing we note that the Sabian symbol for the eclipse degree [8pi12] is:
