According to scientists, the volcanic activity of Greater and Little Ararat began in the third millennium BC. Proof of this are the remains of human bodies found during excavations, as well as household items dating from the Bronze Age… (pay attention to the dating!).
During the Common Era, the strongest eruption occurred in July 1840. The explosion was accompanied by an earthquake, which ultimately caused the destruction of a village located on Mount Ararat along with the Armenian monastery of St. Hakob.
