Pots and meetings in Tbilisi

”Is the freaking pot 3500 years???”

”Yes, it’s a very nice vessel from one of the central materials we have in the exhibition”

If you are from Scandinavia, with a background in archaeology, having experienced postholes and broken up ceramic fragments, then an un-damaged bronze-age vessel is just amazing. Ramaz Shengelia is building a medical museum in Tbilisi, and there are several pieces meant to be in the exhibition that are amazing, frightening, and both of them.

Natalya (Kashuba) and I was here today to discuss how to understand some of the results we have been getting. You can do it through email or Skype, but it is always better to be able to sit down and twist and turn every little piece of data and try to make sense of it together with those who actually have a good understanding for the material. Thus, today we had good and productive meetings with Ramaz Shengelia, Lia Bitadze, and Giorgi Tcheishvil. I suspect it is not going to be the last time we see these specialists.
