Below are photos of stone gravestones in the form of rams from the Armenian cemetery in Varzakhan.
The photos are from the book “Armenia: Travels and Studies” by Henry Finnis Blosse Lynch (1862-1913), British geographer, traveler, Armenologist, son of explorer Thomas Kerr Lynch and his Armenian wife Harriet Taylor, the daughter of Colonel Robert Taylor, a British resident in Baghdad.
In 1893-1898, Lynch made two trips to the Armenian Highlands, a territory now occupied by Turkey, Georgia, and Armenia. Lynch’s photos preserved images of many now extinct historical sites.
