Using a phenomenological approach, Vera Egbers will first reconstruct the planned experience of Urartian fortresses and Neo-Assyrian palaces. That is, she will deduce each specific understanding of space. She will then compare the differences between those culturally produced spatialities, emphasizing the question of how an Assyrian subject experienced the Urartian environment (. as a prisoner of war).
