The area has been divided into six main regions which are considered in three different epochs, the Early Iron Age, the Urartian and the Achaemenid periods, which also express three different models of territorial control and organization.

Abstract

The present paper aims to evaluate the archaeological landscape patterns of the territory of the present-day Republic of Armenia and Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan. The area has been divided into six main regions which are considered in three different epochs, the Early Iron Age, the Urartian and the Achaemenid periods, which also express three different models of territorial control and organization. The distribution and features of the main archaeological sites (namely fortified and unfortified settlements, and cemeteries) are described in order to analyze the transformation of the archaeological landscape over three different chronological and political phases.
