Location: This site is about 20 km north of Kars; as the crow flies; north-northeast of the town of Susuz; on the flat plain north of the Cilavuz Stream. This site has also been referred to as the site of Susuz in archaeological literature.
Geography and Environment: The Cilavuz Stream springs from two different sources on the 3;150 m high Mount Kisirin and arcs around the town of Susuz before its confluence with the Agziašik Stream. The Agziašik; which is referred to by several different names on its journey; such as ăayirdere Stream and Kars Stream; flows steadily until it empties into the Arpašay River. K÷kten must have surveyed the gravely areas between the northern Kamisli Stream and the Kiršišegi (Mamas) Stream. He informs us that there are natural caves by the Cilavuz Stream. On a 1:100;000 map; there appears to be at least one cave immediately west of the town of Susuz; along the Cilavuz River where it joins with the Agziašik Stream.
