The Georgian Archaeological Monograph series is intended to provide a focal point for the publication of excavation reports, single and multi-authored research volumes, conference proceedings, and doctoral theses relating to all aspects of Georgian archaeology and cultural heritage. Submissions are also welcomed on topics relating to the archaeology of the wider Southern Caucasus, particularly fieldwork reports and research currently unavailable in English. The monograph series embraces the full spectrum of interdisciplinary contributions to our understanding of the archaeology of the Southern Caucasus including, but not limited to, historical research; excavation/ fieldwork; environmental/ biological/ artefactual analysis; and new scientific methods.

The ruins at the village of Nokalakevi, in rural west Georgia, were first identified as the Archaeopolis described by Byzantine chroniclers in the 1830s. The first exploratory excavations took place in the winter of 1930-31; but significant archaeological work didn’t begin until 1973 through the Simon Janashia Museum of Georgia. This work had to be scaled down following Georgian independence from the Soviet Union, and the subsequent civil unrest that characterised much of the 1990s. Three edited volumes were produced by Parmen Zakaraia in 1981, 1987 and 1992 which reported on the work in, 1973-1977; 1978-1982; and 1983-1989, respectively. The Anglo-Georgian Expedition to Nokalakevi (AGEN) first excavated at the site in 2001, utilising a British excavation/ recording methodology and enabling collaboration between British and Georgian specialists and students which continues to this day.
