Historic Armenia After 100 Years
Ani, Kars & the Six Provinces
of Western Armenia

by Matthew Karanian

About The Book

ONE HUNDRED YEARS after the Armenian Holocaust, the historic homeland of the Armenians remains unknown to much of the world. Since 1915, most of the cultural monuments of the Armenian nation in the lands of historic Armenia have been eliminated or repurposed for other uses.

But there is much that still remains.

In the groundbreaking new book HISTORIC ARMENIA AFTER 100 YEARS, author Matthew Karanian celebrates the Armenia that has avoided destruction: our monuments, our churches, and our people—the hidden Armenians who have persevered in the face of persecution.

HISTORIC ARMENIA AFTER 100 YEARS shines a light on the Western Armenia that defies eradication, and leads us on a journey of rediscovery.

For the first time since the Armenian Genocide, the cultural wealth of the Armenian nation in Western Armenia is presented in one readable and beautifully illustrated volume. This book will guide you to the history and culture of the ancient Armenian homeland– whether you intend to travel there in person, or only through the pages of this book.

HISTORIC ARMENIA AFTER 100 YEARS is the product of several years of research and photography. The book’s 176 pages are illustrated with 125 color maps and photographs, including antique photos from one century ago. All of the research, writing, and photography is original and is based upon the author’s numerous trips to the region.
