Shengavit settlement

This ancient settlement occupying an area of 3.5ha, is dated to 2900-2700 BC. It consists of square blocks connected with snaky trails. The whole complex is surrounded by a cyclopic wall with a secret undergrounnd tunnel in it. Arceologists proved that Shengavit culture refers to the early bronze age. This culture was spread not only within the huge territory of the Armenian Highland but also out of its borders. The excavations restarted in 2000. During these observations it became obvious that Shengavit culture started at about 1st half of IV millennium BC (or even earlier) and lasted till the middle of the III millennium BC.
