Armenian Italian Archeological Studies Provide New Data

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–New data confirming the information of the Armenian historian of the 5th century Movses Khorenatsi was proven true as a result of the Armenian-Italian archeological studies. In particular–the data confirmed information about the culture of the people that inhabited the Sevan basin in pre-Christian times. The results of the studies that began in 1994 were summed up at the meeting of the ANAS Presidium July 30. Attending the meeting as a guest was Italian Ambassador to Armenian Paolo Andrea Trabalza.

Director of the ANAS Institute of Archeology and Ethnography Aram Kalantarian emphasized the importance of one archeological find–a boundary post of King Artashes I with inscriptions in Aramaic. He also pointed out that the studies of over 100 archeological monumen’s allowed scholars to draw a new map of the Sevan basin. In his turn–Trabalza announced his intention to do his best for the fruitful cooperation to be continued.
