(or Kyzylvank), a burial ground near the Kyzylvank station in the Nakhichevan ASSR. The materials from Kyzyl-Vank characterize the late Bronze Age painted-pottery culture of southern Transcaucasia. The burial ground was discovered in 1895 and excavated in 1926. Flexed burials in stone boxes were found; the burials also contained bronze and iron weapons and painted pottery reflecting the successive stages of development of the culture at the site (second half of the second millennium B.C. and the beginning of the first millennium B.C.). Sites with similar pottery have been discovered in Armenia and Iran.
