YEREVAN. – An NGO dealing with the protection of historic environment organized research and excavations in the vicinity of the tomb chapel of St. Grigoris in Amaras,Martuni region of Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
The excavations were led by head of Tigranakert expedition, archaeologist H. Petrosyan.
Experts found two parallel walls with large hewn blocks that look like a continuation of the walls of the eastern corridor of the tomb. More than a hundred pieces of tile dating back to early Middle Ages suggest that the roof was tiled.
The archeologists found six steps and a tiled floor at the east entrance. This corridor and the entrance on the east side, as well as tiled floor give reason to assume that a more important structure was located to the east of the tomb.
