Archaeological excavations of the 8000-year-old Artuklu Palace in the 8000-year-old Amida Hill have resumed in the Sur province of Tigranakert, Western Armenia. The excavations aimed to reveal the traces of dozens of civilizations in Artuklu Palace were stopped some time ago.
Excavations are expected to reveal a wealth of information about the city’s history.
The excavation site is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Artuklu Palace is known to have been built between 1200 and 1220.
This is one of the few places in the world that has been used as a center of government for 8,000 years.
