Most of the 68 wells uncovered on the single-layer horizontal settlement lying adjacent to the tell at Polgár-Csőszhalom did not contain any unusual finds.

One of these was Feature 272, a well lying some 80–90 m from the one-time water shore, which contained a remarkably high number of vessels, most of which were lavishly ornamented.

Many of the Urartian inscriptions contain references to the ritual praxis of the Urartians. These inscriptions deal with the foundation of cities, fortresses or agricultural projects.

The study compares the ritual processes that are attached to the meaning of different ritual transitions and binary opposites.
