Երևանը աշխարհի հնագույն բնակավայրերից է: Նրա պատմությունը հար և նման է հայ ժողովրդի բարդ տարեգրությանը: Նախքան պարսիկների, արաբների, սելջուկների, թուրքմենական քոչվոր ցեղերի և օսմանյան թուրքերի ասպատակությունները, Երևանի բնակչության մեծ մասը եղել են հայերը, հետագայում նրանց թիվն աստիճանաբար նվազել է, ու նրանց տեղն զբաղեցրել են եկվորները:
Yerevan is one of the oldest cities in the world. The archeological excavations made in its territory, show that the human lived here thousands years ago. It is important to note, that the territory of Yerevan has been inhabited uninterruptedly. The researches showed, that a lot of settlements had arised in different periods and for different reasons were demolished in the territory of the city. In chronological sense, the oldest settlement,discovered in the territory of the city, is the Yerevan or Hrazdan Cave (near Lake Yerevan, on the left bank of the Hrazdan River), the oldest lower layer of which (4-5 cultural layers) dates with Musteryan Circle (100.000-35.000 thousand years ago).
