TWO STONE FORMS 쿥ITH HOLES IN THEM WERE FOUND NEARBY. SPECIALISTS BELIEVE 쿟HEY COULD HAVE BEEN ANCHORS FOR A HUGE VESSEL. THERE USED 쿟O BE A LAKE 10- 15 THOUSAND YEARS AGO THERE AND THE SHIP 쿎OULD SAIL ITS WATERS. 쿞EVERAL VERSIONS EXIST AS TO THE ORIGINS OF THE UNIQUE 쿑INDING. ONE OF THEM SAYS IT IS A CHAPEL IN THE FORM OF A 쿞HIP, SYMBOLISING NOAH'S WORSHIP, ANOTHER BELIEVES IT TO BE 쿌 NATURAL GEOLOGICAL FORM. 쿔TS LOCATION HAS LONG BEEN UNKNOWN, KARAKHANYAN SAID, BUT 쿟HESE REMAINS FINALLY SURFACED WHEN THEY WERE UNCOVERED BY A 쿗ANDSLIDE DURING AN EARTHQUAKE IN 1968, ON THE BORDER 쿍ETWEEN TURKEY AND IRAN. KARAKHANYAN'S EXPEDITION IS 쿟ARGETED PRIMARILY AT SEISMIC RESEARCH WITHIN THE UNESCO 쿗ONG-TERM SEISMIC PROGNOSIS PROGRAMME AND ARCHAEOLOGY IS NOT 쿔TS PRIME OBJECTIVE. =END=
