ArAGATS 2013

PackingWe are packing up and getting ready for the new field season.  We will try to post regular updates on this site as the season progresses.  If you are in Armenia this summer, feel free to come visit.  In general, we will be in the field every day except Sundays from June 27-July 28.  You can find us in Gegharot, Tsaghkahovit, or Aparan by just asking for the archaeologists.

Project ArAGATS has a new US Home

As of  August 2011, Project ArAGATS has a new US home!  Adam T. Smith and Lori Khatchadourian have taken positions in the Anthropology and Near Eastern Studies Departments (respectively) at Cornell University.  For more information see the following links: LoriAdamAssemblages BlogLandscapes and Objects Laboratory.

In Armenia, Project ArAGATS is based at the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography where co-director Ruben Badalyan heads the Bronze Age division.

Welcome..
