      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.

      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.
