What a wonderful find. Off the top of my head there are 6 of Tutankhamuns chariots (including one in Aswan museum), fragments of a chariot in Italy (Florence?) & some more parts in Oxford. Can anyone add to this tentative list?

I seem to remember a frame only in the National Archaeology Museum in Florence. Outside of Egypt I cannot think of anything I have seen but replicas.
