The Armenian-French expedition, which has been conducting excavations in Aknashen for almost 15 years, has discovered a new Stone Age monument.

As reported by Armenpress, director of the Institute of Archeology and Ethnography Pavel Avetisyan mentioned that the results of the work done are very impressive and they can be used to interpret and present the process of the Neolithic revolution both in the Armenian Highlands and in the whole region.

The works in the Aknashen Neolithic-Eneolithic settlement of the Armavir region of RA started in 2004. It is the mostly studied monument in the Caucasus, located at the bottom of the Kasakh River. The excavations are carried out within the framework of Armenian-French cooperation and there are several publications on complex studies.
