Cave Writing from Lake Sevan

Before hieroglyphic writing was developed, between 900 and 700 BCE, people of the Armenian region expressed themselves by carving and painting designs on rocks.  These three pictographs were executed between the 8th and 4th millenia BCE, (9000 to 3000 BCE).  According to archaeologists  the drawings are associated with Neolithic cultures, especially in the higher mountain regions (Aragats and Aghmaghan and the basin of Lake Sevan).
