From Assyrian texts, Urartu is known to have existed from about the late 13th century BC to the 9th century BC as a loose federation of tribes.
The Urartian Kingdom existed from the 9th century BC until the 6th century BC when it was destroyed by the Medes and vanished from history, only to be rediscovered in the archaeology of the late 1800s and early 1900s.
However, some of this is speculation since there are no cross-references in 15th century BC writing so no one really knows exactly where Moses was referring to when he stated that the ark came to rest on the "mountains of rrt".

 Where Is Mount Sinai by Emmanuel Anati
It was clear from the beginning of the survey that Har Karkom was a paramount cult center in the fourth and third millennia BC where large groups of people came and built their camps at the foothills.
In any case, the itinerary described must have been topographically meaningful to people from the first millennium BC who were acquainted with the region in 1989, and again in 1992, we surveyed various hypotheses of the itinerary of Exodus in Egyptian Sinai.
Another Egyptian text related, in the known versions to the 20th century BC, the Sinuhe narrative, clearly has much in common with the biblical story of Moses, who escaped to Midian where he "married" into the family of Jethro.
