Unearthing Armenia’S Giant, Ancient Earthenware

Recommended Posts

They are coil built on turntables. I was at the museum in Yerevan, Armenia and saw a replica of the first potters wheels ever. Noah's Ark is on Mount Ararat, the symbol of Armenia , and it is visible in the morning before the smog develops. They still slaughter sheep at Christmas at the Armenian Churches. They are brown sheep and hung on the church front porch. I was there for Christmas one year in 2001. Armenia was Christianized by Thaddeus and Bartholomew.Before Peter got to Italy. Very interesting and ancient history there.The museum has a great ceramics collection including colored coils of clay used for making the walls in decorated with patterns.Fascinating place.
