Together with Assyria and Babylon, Armenia is depicted on the oldest map in the world dating back to the 6th century BC. It’s a clay plate with geographical images of these three countries, found in the 19th century in the territory of Iraq. Our hospitable country is marked there as a civilization hub with a cuneiform inscription “Urartu-Ararat-Armenia”. The map is now exhibited at the British Museum.
