    Why are you using Armenian music/dances as an analogy for central/eastern Asian music and dances? Just because Urartu was mostly located in modern Turkey? Whether Altaic is a legitimate linguistic...

    And in Armenian the equivalent word is mets, which, unsurprisingly, seems to be between the ancient Greek and the Avestan.

    So perhaps there was a sister language to proto-Armenian and proto-Greek...

    Plus, you have both the Armenian endonym (Hay=Hayasa) and exonym (Urumu and other similar names=(?) Aram, etc) represented in the Armenia-region well before the 700s BCE. Hayasa from the 16th century...

    I think that there is a connection between Hurro-Urartian and NE Caucasian in a broad sense. I think its very possible (and even probable, if Kura-Araxes was proto-Hurro-Urartian and also if the...

    Strabo lived in the 1st century BCE-1st century CE. Alexander the Great lived in the 4th century BCE. Here is a map of Alexander's empire at its greatest extent.

    But this is basically what the modern consensus is though. This is what Reich has argued. This is what I think Wang has argued, if I remember correctly. I also think that this is what Damgaard et al...

    I should also add, Kossian suggests that the Transcaucasian ceramic ware (dated to the expansion of the Urumu/Mushki/Kaskas) was derived from the Trialeti-Vanadzor ceramic culture.

    While the...

    Some very fascinating stuff, indeed. Thanks for the great write-up.

    Firstly, I just felt the need to clarify the Hurro-Urartian/NE Caucasian connection because I feel that there has been a lot of...

    Thanks! I find this stuff fascinating--especially ancient Near Eastern cultures, and there are so many language isolates and mysterious peoples.

    I guess, yeah. Fournet breaks up "Indo-European" into two branches, Hurro-Urartian and Eteo-Indo-European (which seems to be what Reich calls Pre-Proto-Indo-European and others call Indo-Hittite)....

    I didn't make that connection between Crete and Hurrite but that's super interesting. There's also a theory that Artemis comes from Hurrians or Urartians.

    I just wanted to point out that...
  15. Hurro-Urartian as a sister to Indo-European

    Hurro-Urartian (HU) is a now extinct language family that was spoken in the Bronze Age/Iron Age Near East that consisted of two distinct languages: Hurrian and Urartian. Some compelling evidence has...

    Isn't there some evidence of separation between "the priestly class" (Cohens and Levines?) and others? But if I'm not wrong, Cohen genes appear in different Eastern Mediterranean populations outside...

    Are these LMBA Armenians the potential "Satem" Armenians you and I were talking about some weeks ago?

    There was a migration of Armenians into eastern Europe (the Carpathian region, Poland, and the Baltic states) when the city of Ani fell to, and much of the population was killed by, the Seljuk Turks...

    What's the % of Armenian ancestry in modern Ashkenazi Jews? Is it still detectable or is it too diluted now due to 3000 years passing?

    Interesting idea. The Mushki were in Cappodocia and also apparently in Cilicia and the general region of Lake Van (potentially giving their name to the city of Mush).

    A couple other ideas--there...

    You're right, there is no solid evidence (such as a stele written in Armenian or something along those lines) but there is ceramic evidence of the so-called Transcaucasian ceramic ware moving...

    If they're on the earlier end of the MBA, they could be from Hittites or Hurrians, neither of whom were not Armenian (obviously) but could have been genetically similar to Armenians, regardless of...

    Hi again, Pip!

    There was a user on here named Arame who had an interesting theory in a different thread on this site a couple of years ago. He was pretty knowledgable about Armenian genetics and...
