I believe this is the first drone footage ever shot of the medieval archaeological site of Ani:https://www.facebook.com/AN%C4%B0-City- ... 1/?fref=nf

The opening title is "Archeological site of Ani" (perhaps it was made to support the UNESCO bid?). I don't speak or write Turkish. The end credit, or so it seems, reveals little. Google found no meaning for me for the words in red and blue, "Abone Ol". Google Translate says "izlemec icin tiklayin" means "click to watch". I first saw the video via the "ANi City" feed on Facebook. So the above link is to that Facebook page. I've left a comment on the page asking where (presumably embedded in another Facebook page) the editor of ANi page sourced the video.

"ANi City" on Facebook responded to my query regarding the source of the drone video. It indicating the source is from YouTube where the video is titled in Turkish YEDİ KAPILI GİZEMLİ ŞEHİR: ANİ ("Seven Doors Mystery City: Ani" according to Google Translate). Here's the YouTube link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLglkO6YKVM The video was uploaded on 4 June 2016. So far it's had almost 2,000 views, and 4 comments, 3 on the music in the video.

The upload onto YouTube is by "On Numara Tarih" (meaning "On Number Date"), a history channel on YouTube with about 35 videos focused on profiles of historical sites in or occupied by Turkey.

"On Numara Tarih" has a presence in other social media:
Twitter:https://twitter.com/onnumaratarih - large following of over 3,000 followers
Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/onnumaratarih
Google+:https://plus.google.com/+OnNumaraTarih

The lead appears to be Özgür Özgülgün. His webpage is:http://www.ozgurozgulgun.com That's a mostly personal image or photographic profile site for Özgülgün.

For a web presence professing to be about archeology, searching the 515 tweets athttps://twitter.com/onnumaratarih I note there are no references to "Armenia" or "Armenian" and one reference to "Greek".
