8. Armenia, c. 1300–331 B.C.E.
a. Geography
 
Armenia is a mountainous region lying between the Black and Caspian Seas. The mountains of Kurdistan separate it from Mesopotamia, and its northern border is the Kura River. The region contains three great lakes: Van, Urmia, and Sevan. In the Urartian period, the main cities were Tushpa, Erebuni, and Rusahinili. The only major city in the Armenian period under discussion was Armavir.  1
