    Anatolia or Asia Minor for the Eastern plateau beside the Armenian Highlands.

    Asia Minor is the peninsular aspect, the small bit of Asia that sticks out into the sea including the mountains in the south:







    Ancient Greek settlements.

    The Armenian highlands make up the mountains that are within 'Asia Major' if you will, not in the peninsula. "Anatolia corresponds to the western two-thirds of the Asian part of Turkey."

    Whether or not the Turks refer to the Armenian Highlands as part of Anatolia, I don't know.

    Armani/Armanum is mentioned in the inscriptions of Akkadian King Naram Suen (Sin) around 2,300 BCE.

    Akkadian Empire

    Naram-Sin recorded the Akkadian’s wars against the Armani or Armeni people in Ararat. The Armeni is a reference to Armen who was the ruler of the Armenian tribe (Armen’s followers, the Armenians, were refered to as Armeni or Armens at the time). It is not known if Sargon, grandfather of Naram-Sin, and Manishtushu, father of Naram-Sin, also fought against the Armeni people of Ararat during their rule of the Akkadian Empire. It is highly probable however considering that Naram-Sin recorded multiple wars with the Armeni people of Ararat.

    It is not known at this time if war with the Armeni people of Ararat contributed to the collapse of the Akkadian kingdom. However, the Akkadian Empire was already starting to crumble during the reign of Shar-kali-sharri, the son of Naram-Sin, and by the end of his reign the empire collapsed outright from the invasion of barbarians of the Zagros Mountains known as “Gutians.” Some speculate that a bad harvest, climactic change or even a giant meteor contributed to the decline.

    Armenian DNA Project

    over 300 individuals that have already been tested, revealing that the Armenian branches of DNA are at the root of many branches in Europe.

    Armenians belong to 13 distinct genetic groups that go back tens of thousands of years, while at the same time there is no trace of invaders in their DNA in the last 4000 years

    Ancient people whose names we carry up to now are Armens/Armanum and Hayasa/Hayk.




    Armenian Dna Research

    By reaching thousands of years into the past, this project also aims to find genetic traces of both the ancient peoples whose descendants make up the current Armenian population (Armens, Colchians, Hattians, Hayasa, Hayk, Hittites, Hurrians, Kaskians, Luwians, Mitanni, Mushkis, Pala, Phrygians, Urartians, etc.) and the ancient invaders who conquered or passed through the Armenian lands (Assyrians, Gamrik-Gimirri-Cimmerians, Galatian Celts, Greeks, Parthians, Romans, Scythians, Macedonians, Medes, Persians, etc.).

    I'm a real highlander Wherever I go I go to the mountains. I was born and raised in Abkhazia and I've been to some of the coolest mountain villages in the Caucasus and I tell you it's the best! It's not like in European villages where electricity, roads and even super markets are readily available, it's real bush time Plunges you into medieval times. But man the nature is just astonishing forests, waterfalls, wolfs, wild horses, and the night sky is indescribable. I can imagine people invent fairy tales and myths surrounding those places from the time immemorial. Caucasus is the best place on earth there I said it!!

    ALU INSERTION POLYMORPHISMS IN POPULATIONS
    OF THE SOUTH CAUCASUS


    "Armenians are a separate ethnic group,
    which originated from Neolithic tribes of the Armenian Uplands"
    Litvinov S*, Kutuev I, Yunusbayev B, Khusainova R, Valiev R,
    Khusnutdinova E



    By resolving certain formulaic uncertainties in the methodology of Gray & Atkinson's phylogenetic approach to the reconstruction of the Indo-European language family, a new, independent study has reaffirmed the original findings, al...beit with a slight chronological difference. Accordingly, and despite minimum estimation, the division of the Armeno-Greek branch of the Proto-Indo-Hittite mother tree can be confidently fixed no later than 6500 BC- meaning Armenian and Greek began to "behave" as distinct languages at least 8500 years ago.




    In our study the ancestry of the Armenians was traced back to different parts of Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Turkey, illustrating the fact that historic Armenia was a much larger territory than that of the present Republic of Armenia.

    The Armenians are a nation and an ethnic group originating from the Caucasus
    and eastern Anatolia, where a large concentration of this community has
    remained, especially in Armenia.

    This is another interesting thread that I have stuck.
