Abstract :
While discussing the problems of history and culture of ancient Near East, scholars, strangely enough, often ignore the data of Urartian written and archaeological material, in spite of the fact that the Urartian empire rose and formed as a typical ancient Near Eastern state. With this contribution I aim to fill a gap between ancient Near Eastern and Urartian studies, focusing my attention on the impact of war on the civilian population in the Urartian period.
