Archaeologists unearth medieval castle in Armenia

The remains of a medieval castle were discovered by archeologists in the west of Armenia. The find is well preserved.

The palace whose total area covers 450 square meters, and the two-meter walls are yet to be completely dug out.

Household items, plates containing records in Armenian and stones that adorned the facade were found nearby.

According to archaeologists, the find will help better study the history of the Armenian statehood, says citing a report from Russia 24.

"It was a multi-edged structure," said Hakob Simonyan, deputy director of the Historical and Cultural Heritage Center under Armenia's culture ministry.

Thanks to the arcuate rhythmic rows that flowed into each other, the palace looked quite solemn, Simonyan said.
