Description: A huge complex of 55 hectare of archaeological monuments and remains of various periods near the village of Lchashen at the Sevan Lake. The site includes a cyclopean fortress, settlements, and burial grounds with numerous barrows, cromlechs, flat-grave burials, and stone cists. The site was excavated in the 1950´s. The cyclopean fortress was in existence from the beginning of the third millennium BCE to the seventh century BCE and from the ninth through the 13th century. Among the unearthed burials there were some dating from the Neolithic period and the middle Bronze Age. TIMELINE Most of Lchashen’s monuments belong to the late Bronze Age (1500 BCE). Four- and two- wheeled wooden carts and war chariots were found in the barrows. The bronze implements that have been found include horse bits, bird and animal figurines (lion, deer, bull, goat), swords, battle axes, mirrors, models of chariots and several gold artefacts (golden frog figurine etc.). Synopsis: Scientists refer excavations in Lchashen to the Kura-Araxes culture that existed from 3400 BC until about 2000 BC and mostly encompassed, on modern-day territories, South Caucasus, Eastern Turkey, and Northern Iran. There is no common opinion within the scientific community on the ethnicity of the tribes that originated Kura-Araxes culture. Some scientists believe those are Hurrian-Urartian tribes dominating in the ancient kingdom of Ararat later on, others inclined to believe that the invasion of the Hurrians led to the decline of the Kura-Araxes culture. In any case, the excavations in Lchashen is a remarkable example of a highly developed civilization that thrived in the South Caucasus while ancient tribes of Southwestern Asia were spreading northward in Caucasus.
