This paper presents the results of the first 3 years of activity of the joint Italian-Armenian expedition between the Institute of Archaeology of the National Academy of Science (Armenia) and the ISMEO – Association of Mediterranean and Oriental Studies (Italy) in the Republic of Armenia. The Italian-Armenian project, named Kotayk Survey Project,  aims to evaluate the archaeological landscape patterns of the territory of the Hrazdan river basin, which is located between two of the most important regions of Armenian highlands: the Araxes valley and the Lake Sevan basin. Along with a detailed surface survey, test excavations have been performed in a fortified site dated to the Middle Iron Age.
