This richly illustrated volume offers a panorama of the civilization of ancient Armenia. The literary portion of "The Armeniad" is based on the works of Armenian historians and on the latest research of a number of European scholars. It tells of the principal stages in the formation of the Armenian identity and the Armenian civilization in the mountainous basic of Lake Van, and in the Ararat and Mush Valleys from the 4th - 3rd millennia onwards. The reader will be able to obtain an impression of a civilization which has travelled in parallel with the great cultures of Sumer, Assyria, the Hittite Kingdom, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, and Byzantium. In leafing through the pages of this book, the reader will learn of important 19th- and 20th-century archaeological research into Asia Minor, which uncovered the "visible pages" of the ancient past to an astounded world. It is in examining the past that our contemporary world is able to gain a glimpse into its future.
