Speaking to oices.com, Deputy Minister of Education and Science Ara Khzmalyan said about the temporary exclusive exhibition entitled “Metsamor Gold” opened in “Metsamor” Historical-Archaeological Reserve-Museum, which is carried out within the framework of exhibitions entitled “Land Secret” initiated by the RA Ministry of Education and Science. “Metsamor is a mystery, and it will take many years for the scientific interpretation of the values found in Metsamor, as well as for further excavations. Only God knows what secrets and treasures there are in Metsamor. In general, the idea of these and previous events is the following: information campaign, raising public awareness.
A few days ago in the museum after Hovhannes Sharambeyan we opened “The secret of the land. The newly discovered tomb of Shahumyan (2800-2600 BC) ”where we presented very valuable finds, samples representing the“ Kur-Araks ”culture of the early Bronze Age, from the History Museum of Armenia անից from the tomb discovered this year in Shahumyan community of Armavir region , which is the first of its kind in Armenia.
These are exceptional values, which are highly valued by archaeologists, who say that there were no such early Bronze Age finds. “In cooperation with the Museum of Folk Arts after Sharambeyan,” said the Deputy Minister.
“We often witness our attitude towards our cultural values and monuments. We have a huge cultural heritage and monuments, and the volume of problems is so great that we can not guarantee their complete security only through the mechanisms of state control bodies, unless the most proven way is guaranteed – our consciousness and care.
As long as we do not recognize our values, as long as the resident does not know about the treasures and monuments of his community, no mechanism can guarantee their security. Our priority is to raise the awareness of those values, so that people know what they know and are ready to take responsibility for it. As I have already mentioned, such exhibitions have the purpose of covering, making every archeological and cultural discovery a public property. We intend to hold a series of such events, I hope one such event every month. “
