Some fascinating information about Armenia and the Armenians from The Saxon Chronicle and the Chronicon Saxonicum (1692), which was revealed by Charles Vallancey in 1802.
The Chronicles say that the first settlers of Britain came from Armenia, and the ARMENIAN-SCYTHIANS who arrived in longships went to Scoti in Ireland.
They later traveled to Scotland where they resided and intermarried with the Irish-Scoti, and gave the name to Scotland. It also says in many places they left the name of Armenia.
In Devonshire is a river called ‘Armine’, and the town and hundred are called ‘Armine-ton’ to this day. So likewise there was a ‘Mons Scotium’ in Armenia.
French Orientalist and Professor Barthelemy d’Herbelot (1625 – 1695) wrote the following in his ‘Bibliotheque Orientale’ book (1697):
“All the country between the Indus and the Caspian and Mediterranean seas, down the Euphrates, and along the Persian Gulph, including Syria, Phoenicia, and India Lymerica, was anciently denominated ARMENIA.
The eastern people gave the name of Armeniah to those nations, the Greeks and Romans called Parthians and Persians.”
