Folk Box: Armenians – a thirty centuries old people



Today we are taking a closer look at one of the most ancient peoples on Earth. Its ‘genetics’ boast rhythms of the Stone Age and tales and legends of the Kingdom of Urartu… The murmur of Time, the breath of centuries… 


What has this to do with Russia, you may ask?! As the Armenians themselves like to say: Armenians live everywhere. According to the latest population census (made in 2012), there are about 2000 Armenians living in Russia. Add to this many dozens of thousands of mixed marriages.


Can one, in all honesty, do justice to a people boasting a culture of some 30 centuries?!! And archeological and culturological research proves the truth of this.
