  Chariot - LoveToKnow 1911
The wheels and body of the chariot were usually of wood, strengthened in places with bronze or iron; the wheels had from four to eight spokes and tires of bronze or iron.
The chariots of the Egyptians and Assyrians, with whom the bow was the principal arm of attack, were richly mounted with quivers full of arrows, while those of the Greeks, whose characteristic weapon was the spear, were plain except as regards mere decoration.
The chariot was unsuited to the uneven soil of Greece and Italy, and it is not improbable that these nations had brought it with them as part of their original habits from their former seats in the East.

 The chariot in Ancient Egypt
The Egyptians improved the design of the chariot by making it lighter, changing the position of the chariot's axle so that the driver would stand closer to it and covering parts of the axle with metal in order to reduce the friction between it and the wooden wheelhub.
The chariot was built of pieces of wood which had been bent into the required shape by heating them (immersing them in boiling hot water for several hours is not recorded but may well have been used), bending them and then letting them dry.
Egyptian war chariots were manned by a driver holding a whip and the reigns and a fighter, generally wielding a bow or, after spending all his arrows, a short spear of which he had a few.

 Chariot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chariots were retained only for races in the public games, or for processions, without undergoing any alteration apparently, their form continuing to correspond with the description of Homer, though it was lighter in build, having to carry only the charioteer.
Chariots are frequently mentioned in the Old Testament, particularly by the prophets, as instruments of war or as symbols of power or glory.
The main centre of chariot racing was the Circus Maximus, situated in the valley between the Palatine and Aventine Hills in Rome.

 The Chariot in Egyptian Warfare   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
In Egypt, war chariots were manned by a driver holding a whip and the reigns and a fighter, generally wielding a bow or, after spending all his arrows, a short spear of which he had a few.
Hence, the chariot was of paramount social and political significance since it heralded the appearance of the chariot corps which consisted of a new aristocratic warrior class modeled on the ubiquitous Asiatic military elite known to the Egyptians as the maryannu (young heroes).
These heavy chariots were ideal for their primary purpose, which was to charge an enemy line using the weight of the machine itself to crash through and brake up the opposing infantry, causing chaos, much like what happened to the Army of Re at the Battle of Kadesh.

 BBC - Radio 4 Making History - The chariot
Chariot racing only really came in when the chariot's time on the battlefield was over.
The Roman charioteers wore helmets and other protective clothing and they wrapped the reins around their arms, which meant that they were liable to be dragged around the circuit.
The chariot is a one-man, high speed, all terrain vehicle which allows the driver to go faster than he can run, behind a pony that can't carry his weight at speed.

 Chariot - International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
The royal chariots were ornamented with gold and silver, and in the battle of Megiddo Thothmes III is represented as standing in his chariot of electrum like the god of war, brandishing his lance.
David houghed all the chariot horses of Hadadezer, king of Zobah, and "reserved of them for a hundred chariots" (2 Samuel 8:4), and Adonijah prepared for himself chariots and horsemen with a view to contest the throne of his father (1 Kings 1:5).

 The Chariot By Bill Vallicella   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
From this three-fold admission, Nagasena concludes that the king is bound to infer that the term ‘chariot’ is an empty sound and that his majesty speaks a falsehood insofar as he implies, by his use of the term ‘chariot,’ that there actually is something in the world to which the term applies.
Note also that the existence/unity of the chariot is presupposed as a prior condition of the analytic project: to analyze the chariot into the sum of its parts is to presuppose that it is more than the sum of its parts.
The commonsensical suggestion that a chariot is a whole of connected parts, and not a mere sum of parts, was rejected on the ground that this connectedness cannot be found by analysis, as indeed it cannot.

 Chariot Racing
Chariot racing was the most popular sport in Rome, appealing to all social classes from slaves to the emperor himself.
Charioteers wore little body protection and only a light helmet; their practice of wrapping the reins tightly around their waists so they could use their body weight to control the horses was exceedingly dangerous in the case of accidents, since they could be dragged and trampled before they could cut themselves loose.

 Chariot racing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A chariot race was also said to be the event that founded the Olympic Games; according to one legend, King Oenomaus challenged his daughter Hippodamia's suitors to a race, but was defeated by Pelops, who founded the Games in honour of his victory.
Philip II of Macedon also won an Olympic chariot race in an attempt to prove he was not a barbarian, though if he had driven the chariot himself he would likely have been considered even lower than a barbarian.
Chariot racing was also an event at other games in the Greek world, and was the most important event at the Panathenaic Games in Athens.

 GURPS Chariot Rules
Chariot Warriors may generally use weapons normally, but some penalties are inevitable; GMs can usually feel free to apply a blanket -1 penalty for the jolting and uncertainty of the ride across rough terrain.
Total all-up weights for chariots could therefore run from about 150 to 1500 lbs., the latter representing a very well-appointed royal command vehicle with seating for the ruler, armour for him to duck behind, a loyal bodyguard or two to shoot back, and perhaps even blades and spears to deter the rabble from annoying him.
A magical chariot which either comes with enchanted beasts, or which automatically grants powers to any team that hauls it, could be a very useful toy; it could allow high-speed travel, great offensive or defensive powers, or even access to some "Realm of the Gods," as well as looking extremely cool.

The earliest chariots had wheels that were made out of solid wood and which turned around a fixed metal axle.
Chariot design improved over time with the invention of light, spoked wheels that reduced weight and increased speed.

 The Nuclear Legacy of Project Chariot - Part I
Not surprisingly, assurances that Chariot would not be a hazard to the subsistence way of life of the Point Hope Inupiat were sharply rejected by the village council.
The net result of the first official presentation of Project Chariot to the people of Point Hope was to produce a profound lack of confidence in the sincerity of the AEC.
Within a year, Project Chariot was set aside by the AEC, due in large part to the rising chorus of protest mounted against the project by Alaska's northern Natives and many other organizations across the United States and throughout the world.

 The History of the Chariot Card   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The presence of the Triumphal Chariot among the tarot trumps is one of several pieces of evidence linking the tarot with the triumphal parades that were popular in Italy during the period when the tarot was created.
In the eastern tradition, the Chariot is paired off against a virtue (typically Temperance or Justice), perhaps suggesting a conflict between violent, martial bloodlust and Christian self-restraint.
In the southern tradition, the Chariot is elevated above the three virtues and even above the Wheel of Fortune, and thus takes on a very positive connotation of victory and mastery over the powers of worldly life, quite consistent with the elegantly allegorical iconography of the cards in these decks.
