Welcome to all interested in Armenian history & culture.
I’d like to congratulate you for your meaningful and beautiful initiative for setting up this blog.
I wished that there where more dedicated Armenians around; who appreciate their roots.
With my best wishes,
This is a fabulous site. I have Bookmarked you, but would like to subscribe. Can you tell me how do I go about subscribing?
As I understand it if you have a blog in word-press you can automatically follow me by clicking the follow button. But if you haven’t then you need a feed reader of some kind. A well known feed reader is “Bloglines” http://www.bloglines.com/ . Or if it’s too much trouble just visit every now and then, I’ll try to update it as much as I can, thanks taking an interest 😀
but mountain ararat is not in armenian grounds but in turkey grounds
According to the Treaty of Sèvres it is still Armenian land. Just because Turkey presently occupies it, doesn’t mean it is Turkish. Besides the issue here is its name which is Armenian. Turks don’t even call it Ararat, they call it Ağrı Dağı.
deraaan rmenian When you go visit or read about the Navajo (American Indian) sites & relics do you not know that they don’t belong to the European Americans? Hopefully you know better & are already aware that just because the Europeans took over the lands, it doesn’t mean those sites suddenly stopped being ancient American Indian sites.
So, why do feel the need to make that kind of comment when it comes to Armenian ones, especially when everyone knows that the Armenians are not only more ancient than even the American Indians but that those Western Armenian lands (where Ararat is located) have belonged to them since the beginning of History. Even its original name ‘AR-arat’ attests to it being AR-Men-ian.
Why play dumb & ignorant with such obviousness???
Great initiative! Will be following your posts.
<3 I'm gonna simply point out that you inspired me to continue digging into Armenian roots… I think you'd enjoy a documentary called "hayere" from Armenia actually 😀 should give you some more ideas on blog posts… Good to know I ain't the only one interested in our roots
thank you for your wonderfull comment and the move I’ll definatelly search for it. I have been very bussy for the past few weeks (familly stuff), so I haven’t made new posts for a while, but I intend to very soon. I have a huge list of very interesting topics about Armenian culture and history that I believe are very often overlooked by many. So stay tuned 🙂 I am very glad this blog inspire you, becuase all the things I post about are the things that inspire me aswell.
People of Ar
Whoever you are, my warmest greeting from Canada. Although I am not young, but I appreciate when young generation gets involved with meaningful and uplifting issues concerning their roots. The history of ARMENIANS extend over 20,000.00 years. there is a lot of literature from the past and new archeological findings confirm.
I wish you good luck. Continue your gracious work. Anahid
I have done extensive research of ancient civilizations going back as far as Portasar, determining the Armenian Highlanders being the catalysts for the rise of various civilizations. I would be an honor to contribute information that I have within various scientific disciplines that support the foundations of Armenian historicity.
Vahan Setyan, PhD
You’re very welcome Vahan I’d love to learn about Armenia as much as I can. I’m very curious to find out more. Don’t shy away from contacting me (email@example.com) if you need something posted or just exchange knowledge.
Have a good day!
I would like to know how Ram Horn was used in ancient Armenia and for what purposes- any information will be appreciated.
I received the Very Inspiring Blogger award and wanted to pass it on to you! Hope you accept! http://tamarnajarian.wordpress.com/2012/08/06/1456/
cool thanks 😀

Do you know, that atomic weight numbers of metals matches to Armenian ”metallic” words.For example ՛՛Ոսկի՛՛ (voski) means gold, if you figure out the numeric value of word ՛՛Ոսկի՛՛ you will get the same number what is written on periodic table the atomic number of gold.
The letter ՛՛Ո՛՛ (vo) is 24th in Armenian alphabet.
Тhe lette ՛՛Ս՛՛ (s@) is 29th in alphabet.
The letter ՛՛Կ՛՛ (k@) is 15th in alphabet.
And the letter ՛՛Ի՛՛ (I) is 11th in alphabet.
The atomic number of gold=79 It’s amazing,isn’t it!
It is said Mesrop Mashtots was instructed by Higher powers during creation of the Armenian alphabet 😉
Higher power means genusness
I guess it only works for gold, but not for the rest of the metals 🙂
a nonsense calculation
In general I do not enter into nonsensical discussions specially on the internet, but just for once let me tell you deraan rmenian. I assume you must be armenian. I assume you know the Armenian alphabet. the atomic weight numbers calculations IS NOT ‘nonsense calculation’ as you imply. Because, the sequence of the Armenian alphabet as we know it today was different. The alphabet was not discovered by Mashtotz, it existed, it was in use, it had to be improved in the design to make it more accessible to the public. Vowels had to be developed/created/designed, like any other language of the time, armenian did not have written vowels. Mashtozt being a learned head of Armenian military establishment of the time realised the necessity and persued to adjust to changing times.
I tried ardzat. It didn’t work.
try for ARTs – Արծ․
The words don’t sound the same way as thousands years ago, for sure.
If you try PGhINDz (Պղինձ), you wouldn’t find anything interesting. You should try MED then – Մեդ, which is close to Russian MEDz (Медь, if you can read).
Only few names sound the same.. It’s clear..
Thank you verry much for this site. SHNORHAKALUTJUN. God bless you.
what is the beautiful song in the middle of this video? Does anybody know?
It’s called Mayrigis (in English: To my mother) by Mariam Matossian http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxw4EYzHBDs
I can write in English but I’d rather write in Armenian using the Latin alphabet.

It is very difficult to read Armenian in roman alphabet. It is almost impossible
Armenians are proud of you!
The site is very good, the video clip of The Armenian Wheel of Eternity is excellent. Is there a possibility that it could be translated to other major languages such as French, Russian, Arabic, Spanish or other ?. If you need assistance please contact me.
Hmm interesting proposition, thank you. I was actually planning to release a part 2 on this symbol. But I will certainly consider your offer. Might be quite interesting translating it to other languages.
What program do you use when making your videos?
Great site keep up the good work! Also check out on facebook: “Historicity of the Armenian people: from neolithic era to the present” Educate your fellow people! this is the only way we can keep our history and culture alive. Thanks
Excellent blog, keep up the good work.
Thank you very much for your beautiful website. Congratulations. How sad that the Wheel of Eternity appears nowhere on the flag of the Republic of Armenia, with its rather boring horizontal tricolor stripes. How appropriate if it could rival that of Japan, another culture with a veneration of the Rising Sun, with the Wheel at its center, and the three national colors – red, blue, apricot – somehow woven in the ensemble. For once, the Armenian Sun could eclipse the Turkish Crescent Moon and Star.
Thank you for sharing your history of Armenia. Your site is beautifully done.
Thank you for your kind words, I’m glad you enjoy the information! 🙂
Merci pour ce blog et le travail que vous accomplissez.
J’ai appris beaucoup de choses.
Vos recherches permettent la transmission de notre histoire arménienne et la survivance de notre mémoire humaine.
Thank you for sharing.
If you need some assistance for french translating, let me know.
I would be proud to help you, to help us.
very nice site. thank you.
Un travail magnifique et educatif………………..merci a vous de nous faire mieux connaitre notre histoire……………
thank you for your research and work – it is very important!
Thank you for your kind words!
Hi there Editor of PeopleOfAr, we really love your articles. Would you be interested in writing for Ancient Origins? If so, please could you email me to discuss further.
Keep up the great work!
Great site with lots of information and historical knowledge. I love it. Thanks for publishing. I have sent a private email to your email address @ hotmail.com with some questions and I hope that you are able to help me finding more about my ancestors from New Julpha/Nogorno Kharabakh. Txs in advance.
Thank you !
Consider the teaching of the immortality of the soul, a belief that some part of man lives on after the body dies. Again, the Church Fathers were instrumental in introducing this notion to a religion that had no teaching about a soul surviving death. The Bible clearly shows that the soul can die: “The soul that is sinning—it itself will die.” (Ezekiel 18:4) What was the basis for the Church Fathers’ belief in an immortal soul? “The Christian concept of a spiritual soul created by God and infused into the body at conception to make man a living whole is the fruit of a long development in Christian philosophy. Only with Origen in the East and St. Augustine in the West was the soul established as a spiritual substance and a philosophical concept formed of its nature. . . . [Augustine’s doctrine] . . . owed much (including some shortcomings) to Neoplatonism,” says the New Catholic Encyclopedia. And the magazine Presbyterian Life says: “Immortality of the soul is a Greek notion formed in ancient mystery cults and elaborated by the philosopher Plato.”
Time—The Silent Witness, The People of Armen
The winding path of History with its labyrinth of twists and turns, and dead ends, has never stopped its frenzied momentum from the Red Sea of Eritrea in Africa. Do not be the last to know about World History, unplugged like you have never seen it before. It lifts the shroud on an ancient world that pulsated with life and mysteriously beckoned to anyone endowed with minimum courage tempered with maximum curiosity.
After all, life is not just about a beginning and an end; a starting point and a final destination. It is more about the journey in between; irrespective of whether its great historic pathway was seductively strewn with rose petals or savagely studded with rusted arrowheads, spearheads and javelin heads.
The provocative and exhilarating accounts will challenge the mind, inspire the psyche, arouse the emotions and stir the senses, because it encapsulates the past, defines the present, and projects the potential future, seamlessly. It is at once a deliciously sensual and sensuous experience from its opening pages until its closing credits, and promises to captivate the reader with its gutsy appeal and old-world charm.
Feel the heady atmosphere and relive the passionate times as mankind forged out the rudiments of his prehistory since the earliest times of the Cradle of Civilisation, through the various Ages, behind the collective countries of the world, whose common origins all date back to the Garden of Eden.
Make no mistake. This, indeed, is the Greatest Truth Never Told.
Time—The Silent Witness, The People of Armen is a book that will expand your knowledge and deepen your own perspective on philosophy. Prepare to discover a uniquely assembled historical jigsaw puzzle composed of many chapters, all fully interlocked and recorded as it actually unfolded, much before ancient Egypt, until our modern day.
World History with the People of Armenia is unveiled in 44 revealing chapters that hold the key to various challenging discoveries and exciting revelations as you Walk the Historical Walk behind the Dice of Time.
So please take the time to visit the web site as noted below. You will not be disappointed.
