National property in the private possession

Armenian archaeologists discovered a sepulchre dated back to 14th century, the epoch of the Mongolian sway. The burial was found by chance: the workers were making foundation for a bath in the very centre of Yerevan, the Armenian capital city. The scientists determined the precise date of the sepulchre as 1319, according to RIA “Novosti”. This was made possible thanks to the inscriptions in Arabic and Armenian found on the walls. The sepulchre contains the remains of seven bodies – the anthropological identification will show who those seven really had been. However, since the mausoleum has been found on the private territory, its status should yet to be finally established by the Armenian government.
