Armenia: My 5 Favorite Things in Yerevan’s Archaeological Museum
Michel Behar is a long-time MIR Tour Manager with deep knowledge and love of antiquities.
Here are a few of my favorite things in one of my favorite places, Yerevan’s Archaeological Museum in Armenia.
The chariots are composed of giant solid oak wheels attached to a body of delicately woven elm, with a mahogany shaft. The chariots held arms, jewelry, and the ashes of rulers, and are decorated with very well preserved bronze statuettes of animals such as deer, tapirs, goats and bulls.
