In the first lecture of a brief series on the history of Armenia and the region of the Armenian Highlands or plateau Dr. Christina Maranci guides us back to the very beginning of the region in Human Prehistory and quickly takes us into the Early Bronze Age discussing archaeology, art and to set the stage for the next lectures a brief overview of the geography of Armenia itself. But, in the beginning of the episode she discusses why Armenian history and studies matter and why we should take the time to dive into it and experience its great stories, events, tragedies and triumphs.
