      Aren Maeir pointed out in a blog comment that Dothan and Stager already
      published chariot linchpins.  Stager's article ("Chariot Fittings from
      Philistine
      Ashkelon" in Dever, et al., Confronting the Past) can be read at -

        It has been long known that metallurgy's roots are in the mountains that
        actually held the ores. Ur is not exactly in mining territory & Pu-abi's
        gold had to come from somewhere else. The Caucasus region has
        long-documented trade ties with the Land Between the Rivers, but to
        attribute all Mesopotamian culture to a modern language/ethnic group
        and/or modern nation-state is just what you do to secure funding.
        Unfortunately it also warps the general understanding of archaeology as
        a whole.

        It is notable that the context of the equid bones was not noted, nor was
        the species. (That they were domesticated horse is an assumption.) The
        presence of a notable amount of bones suggests that the
        equids/horses/tarpan were eaten, not ridden. In most of Mesopotamia
        horses were an elite, high-status animal, so there are not a lot of
        horse bones laying around most sites.

        Subject: [ANE-2] Mesopotamia's civilization came from Armenia

        Unique discoveries revealed as a result of excavations at Shengavit
        (4000-3000 B.C.) confirm that Armenia is the motherland of metallurgy,
        jeweler's art, wine-making and horse breeding...


        Professor Rothman added:


        For his part, Mitchell S. Rothman, a Professor of Anthropology and
        Archaeology and founder of the Anthropology Department at Widener
        University in Chester, Pennsylvania, said that all the discoveries
        prove that around 6,000 years ago the culture of Shengavit has spread
        over the ancient world. "All that was known in Mesopotamia came from
        Armenia. Armenia is the absent fragment in the entire mosaics of the
        ancient world's civilizations construction. Shengavit has supplemented
        the lacking chains, that we had been facing while studying the ancient
        culture of Mesopotamia," concluded Rothman.
