British Museum: We are very aware that Ancient Turkey is nonsensical from a historical point of view

Feb 20, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: ARMINFO news agency

The British Museum has responded to the letter of the Forum of Armenian Associations of Europe , where the forum protests against the use of Ancient Turkey name for the museum's room 54 and suggests renaming the room into Urartu, Ancient Armenia.

An article which reflects the HISTORICAL TRUTH ... but simultaneously also proves the unjustified claims by Armenian nationalists .....

A clear 1:0 for Historical Facts .... no 'made-up' Armenian facts ....

Once again it is the BRITISH MUSEUM which put forward the arguments AGAINST Armenian fantasy claims ....!!!!

That must have hurt between their legs .....

Turdlover, you are as desperate as the British Museum. That letter was pure dishonesty..

The British Museum has political motives with Turks here. I suppose their tourism industries are behind all this fabrication.

The letter makes it clear that the BM is clueless about history. Fist they try to defend themselves that "only 35% of the exhibit is of Urartu"... then they later claim "they are not Turkish, but not Armenian either". If they "were not Armenian either" then why try to make excuses that it was "only 35%" in the beginning? A very desperate claim, by one claiming to be a prominent organization.

Firstly, that they are not Turkish cannot be disputed, but to say "they are not Armenian either" is trying to use wordplay to bring forth a weak argument. Urartu is a word for Ararat. Armenia is also a word. Both as words are meaningless in the context of the historical people who are Armenians of which their ancestors are the Urartians and other groups of Anatolia. The fact that the western world gave the people of Hayk the name "Armenia" attributable to around 800BC, certainly does not mean "they didn't exist" before that, actually quite the contrary. Between this period and around 1200AD, east Anatolia was always Armenia even with foreign invasions, while west Anatolia was Byzantium. To say that "it was not Armenia either" both makes the BM ignorant and dishonest.

There's something for everyone at the British Museum and I highly recommend visiting if you are in town.

Ancient Turkiye is in Room 54

For the Greeks..the Elgin Marbles are in Room 18

Arsey Cola...for you I recommend Room 101

idiot, western world gave hayks the name of Armenia because at 19. Century Europeans suppose urartus were armenians, but after they learn urartus language, every historians and linguistists understand armenians are not urartus except armenian peabrains.Urartu ararat similarity does not prove relation.In Turkey many places similarity with greek times, Konya-ikonia,giresun-kirasus.

How much of central Asian ancestry do you represent?? Your Anatolian great grandfathers converted to Muslim, became Turks so as to pay less taxes, have greater privileges then the groups who did not. A Dounme making comments about the origins of Armenians, now that is something to laugh at. For your information 40% of the Armenian Language is of Subartu origin.

Armenians lie about their origins, rather than shame after their lie exposed ridicolously try to change topic.Armenians fool themselves about urartus are armenians.There is no slightest importance whether Turks are central asian origin or native anatolian.Strong nations assimilates weak nations in the history.

You are absolutely a clueless person. In ancient times in east Anatolia, only one people existed and that is Armenians. Everyone that came before Armenia as a unified nation, was their tribal ancestors. And Grandpa is right, Subartu and Sumeria was part of Armenia, and Armenia ranged from Caspian to Mediterranean to north Syria and Iraq of today. Armenia was the cradle of civilization, it is where everything started.
