This paper addresses the archaeological record of the Middle Bronze Age in central Transcaucasia, around Tbilisi, within the context of physical and social landscapes. Archival research and field survey have brought together the archaeological record of the Tbilisi region, resulting in a comprehensive digital database of all recorded archaeological features in the area. This paper examines the Middle Bronze Age features in the landscape and investigates how concepts of tenure may be active in the nature and location of these features.
