Please pass this one to your friend who wants to do Armenia



Basically, in the13th-14thc, there were two Armenias. The one in Cilicia (now Turkey) followed the Byzantine example; the one in Greater Armenia followed the Mongol example. Sites that cover Armenian history/culture/art are numerious, but here are a few to help you get started. Please, if there is any way I can help you through this research (been there, done that, and still struggling) do not hesitate to contact me.

An expedition led by Hebrew University Professor of Armenian Studies,

Michael E. Stone, and composed of Israeli and Armenian Archaeologists and

experts, has made further major finds in Eghegis, Armenia, including many

inscriptions in beautiful Hebrew script and language. This previously

unknown community is now becoming uncovered. The expedition returned from

field-work in Armenia this week.


Reports will be published in full in the media and in scholarly journals

soon. Many pictures and daily reports may be found on the Hebrew University

Armenian Web Site: http://unixware.mscc.huji.ac.il/~armenia.


Reports, pictures and video-clips may be found on: http://churcharmenia.com


The graveyard being excavated is unprecedentedly early, dating from the

mid-thirteenth to early fourteenth century.


The work is sponsored by the Charles and Agnes Kazarian Eternal Fund with

the support of the Ben Tzvi Institute for Study of the Oriental Jewish

Communities, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Foundation for Biblical

Archeology and the Israel Antiquities Authority.

Adventures in Armenian Cooking

    Web version of a cookbook originally published to raise

    funds for an Armenian Church. Includes instructions for

    canning grape leaves, making madzoon (yoghurt), "cracker

    bread," basturma (pastrami), and paklava (baklava). Recipes

    are written using available American substitutes for

    traditional Armenian ingredients.
