Another indications that chariot was used during the war, there were hints that were found after its usage in war. Animated armament in the hands of a traveler and a human figure were also found under the chariot. Chariots have been used in war as an ancient evidence. Several other places of activity in the middle-east and Egypt contain the work of art describing the gradual development of chariots.
