New excavations on the Southeast Hill at Erebuni, at the east end of the fertile Ararat valley in Armenia, were designed to re-explore the still understudied Urartian settlement that occupies this prominent extramural location. Contrary to an earlier supposition that the site was broadly contemporary with the eighth to seventh century Urartian occupation in the adjacent Citadel, it emerges that this short-lived settlement may throw valuable light on a notably late phase of Urartian material culture.
