Researchers working in the Roman fortress Rusokastro in Bulgaria, they have made a curious discovery when they found a small statuette representing an advancing horse.

The statuette shows the horse with its right leg raised and bent at the knee, and its head turned slightly to the right. The hind legs and part of the tail are missing.

The statuette is cast in bronze and exquisitely well crafted, measuring 5 cm long by 4.8 cm and dates from between the 2nd and 3rd centuries.

Researchers believe it is a gift left in a shrine or temple and this find may indicate its existence (yet to be discovered) in the vicinity of the fortress.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
