Armenia in the 3rd millennium BC: the ancient records of <<Armenia>>: Armi, Arman(um), Aram
The period of passing from Primitive age to civilization and the period of early state formations in Armenian highland took place in early Bronze Age (from the middle of 4th millennium BC up to 24th century BC). The whole Armenian highland was united in one cultural zone in that period. This states the affinity of the inhabitants of the highland.
In Armenian Highland from ancient places of early Bronze Age maces were found made of semiprecious stones, which were probably the symbols of power. The Metsamor observatory is one of the achievements of science, from where the starry sky was observed in 2800-2600 BC. The conclusions of European astronomer-historians at the end of the 19th century prove the fact, according to which to the zodiacal constellations were given names in the Armenian Highland in the 28th century BC. Early Bronze Age ceramics of Armenia were rich of symbols and ideograms, which became the base of Armenian hieroglyphs.
