The book titled "Impact of An Ancient Nation", presence one hundred facts on Armenian history and culture. It was initially curated for the 100 Years, 100 Facts Project as it ran online from April 24, 2014 to April 24, 2015. The book was revised and updated with those glimpses into the Armenian experience in order to serve as a worthy testimony of a lasting heritage. From building the first coffee shops in Europe to building the longest aerial tramway in the world, from leading the global trade routes in the middle ages to leading the global chess rankings in modern times, Armenians carry a rich culture that has had a lasting impact on humanity.
