    Post World's oldest chariot found in near Krakow! (3500 BC)

    How about this, eh? A chariot dated at 3500BC was found near Krakow. No one really knows who it belongs to, but perhaps it's a Kurgan (Aryan) chariot? That's what it seems, because similar things have been found in Central Asia.

    Can't really translate the whole article, cos it's too long, but here's a pic of a vase found on the site, with an illustration of the chariot.

    If I am not mistaken they have found such burials of chariots even into western China and the people buried with them are Europeon (the type of cloth found in the Chinese burials was traced to Austria and was not native to China, the people appeared to have been Celts). Naturally that caused quite a stir.

    They not only buried the chariots with its owner, but his servants, poor souls, got buried with him as well.

    Fortunately for household help times have changed.

    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.
