  • How the expedition works
  • Our practice

The expedition is a professional research excavation, which provides archaeological training for both international and Georgian archaeology students.
AGEN is a not for profit organisation that administers the British end of the annual fieldwork at Nokalakevi. All our staff are volunteers who give their time for free. Its directors work closely with the Georgian staff of the National Museum to organise and help fund the ongoing, annual fieldwork at the site and related pre- and post-excavation work.

The expedition is headed predominantly by archaeologists who have extensive rural and urban fieldwork experience; They have excavated nationally (UK) and internationally so covering a diverse number of cultures within a wide chronological frame. Our single context recording methodology has been carefully constructed to maximise the amount of information through excavation and can be seen in the orientation pack.

With each subsequent season, we aim to draw upon as many specialisations available to us in order to more effectively study the site of Nokalakevi. Our goal is to attract specialists and expand research interest in the area and employ the expertise to carry out a wide variety of science and arts based archaeological disciplines. We have addressed a number of objectives including topographical, archaeological and GPS surveys. We are conducting a full ceramic analysis, and making good progress with paleobotanical and zoological analyses and even experimental archaeology.
