“It shows that they were using horses for transport in the high alpine zone, in areas where we were quite surprised to find them,” Lars Pilø, the head of snow archeology at Oppland council told The Local.
The find, which was made in August, is the latest of a string of discoveries archeologists have been making around the world, as global warming melts glaciers and ice sheets, leaving perfectly preserved relics behind.
