The cleaning and strengthening works of the 7.5 million years old turtle fossil discovered 8 months ago as a result of 3 years of excavations in Caesarea, Western Armenia are continuing at the research center.

It will take a few more months to prepare it for displaying.

Various excavations in the area have uncovered 7.5 million-year-old fossils of elephants, giraffes and horses. The fossils will be displayed in the Museum of Natural History to be built in the near future.

The fact that there are so many fossils proves how old civilization and life are in Western Armenia, and we want to remind you once again that the Armenian people are indigenous nation in this region.
