6.0 Albanian Period

This period is the Christian era in Azerbaijan, locally termed the Albanian period. It was expected that, as this represented a fairly short period of use (from approximately 400 AD to the Arab invasion of 644 AD), little evidence would be encountered. However, evidence of the period was plentiful and some of the sites are of international importance. The relatively large group of sites, located in the middle portion of the pipeline, included a large cemetery associated with a rectangular building interpreted as a chapel. Several distinctive carved stone objects are also associated with the period.
