culture and tradition, attitude of a man towards labor, good
and evil and his role and place in the Universe.

It is known, that with the appearance and the development of
language the man is becoming a unique “symbolic animal”,
passing a way from a biological being to a thinking one. But
the reason is that the language, as an cognitive object is a
developing, open, huge knowledge library of ideas and
symbols. Each of the elements is modeling, projecting and
means one appearance of the world, out of the edges of the
human race particularly and entirely.
It is supposed, that the complexes of the rock images, which
were discovered on the historical territory of Armenia, are
differed from each other in a measure of mental
characteristics and dialect differences of the representatives of
Armenian people from various parts and regions of Armenia.

Hieroglyphs usually considered to be the first step in the
development of letter writing and were on the lowest
development degree, as if they do not express sounds or
syllables. They express whole words or parts of them and,
naturally, do not submit any grammatical rule and cause
serious difficulties in reading. Egyptians and Chinese
implemented this kind of letter writing. The ancient nations,
such as Armenian, also had hieroglyphs in their letter writing.
The Armenian manuscripts on natural sciences consist of
great amount of hieroglyphs. The number of Armenian
manuscripts, which reach our days, is 25 000. The greatest
collection of manuscripts is kept in the Scientific Research
Institute of Ancient Manuscripts (Matenadaran). Here are kept
about 10 500 manuscripts. This amount does not contain
fragments and documents in foreign languages. A collection of
old Armenian manuscripts is kept in the library of Armenian
Abbey in Jerusalem, in the libraries of Mchitarian Abbey in
Venice and Vienna, in Armenian church of Amenaprkich in N.
Djulfa, in British museum, in the library of Vatican, in National
Library of Paris, in the depositories of St. Petersburg (State
Public Library after M. Saltikov-Schedrin, Orient Institute), etc.

This challenging new analysis
of the hieroglyphic inscriptions
of ancient Anatolia establishes
direct links to the modern
Armenian language, people
and their traditions. Now
deciphered correctly for the
first time, the written records
left to us by these first
Armenians not only present a
vivid picture of how they lived
but also provide a vital key to
filling in gaps in the history of
Anatolia and the Near East.
