Modern Armenia, a volcanic mountainous landscape with continental climate, is situated in the northern part of the geographic unit known as Armenian Highland, and is characterized by its rich cultural heritage.

Both geographically and culturally Armenia is a typical contact zone where during the whole history of the region various cultural influences were circulating, which, together with local traits, made up its common cultural image. Such conditions turned Armenia with its surroundings into a kind of cross-road of world developments in ancient times - evolving special characters for the local populations

The lecture is related to the Paleolithic, Neolithic, Chalcolithic, Bronze and Iron ages, as well as the Urartian (IX-VII centuries B. C. E. ), Post-Urartian(End of VII century-first half of V century B. C. E. ), Achaemenid Hellenistic and Medieval periods of the Archaeology and History of Armenia. A special focus will be devoted for the History and Developments of the Archaeology of Armenia, its achievements problems and perspectives. The lecture will specifically focus on the regional context.
