- This project is examining the following period[s] : Late Bronze Age / Early Iron Age through Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine to Early Medieval.
The Expedition provides travel, food and accommodation for participants and will receive a programme of training in all aspects of the fieldwork. This is likely to comprise excavation, recording, planning and level taking (based on a modified MoLAS single context system), wet sieving, washing and recording artefacts, ceramic analysis and possibly some immediate restoration and conservation.
Volunteers are offered a site tour and excursions will be arranged for rest days to other sites in West Georgia and the Black Sea coast. Working hours, subject to change.
Prospective volunteers for 2016 are invited to register their interest.
If you are seriously considering joining the team, you must download and read through the orientation pack and application form. Together with the website, it will give you a comprehensive knowledge of the expedition and what to expect.
If, after reading the pack you would like to join the team, please contact the members of staff outlining your interest. We will get back to you as soon as we can.
Whilst participating on the Anglo-Georgian Expedition to Nokalakevi, every effort is made to make your experience a comfortable and enjoyable one. However, you are expected to be responsible for your own well being and you will be kindly asked to observe any instruction regarding your general safety.
We also expect from you a level of responsibility, common sense and maturity of actions that will command the respect of your Georgian hosts and supervisors. Above all, we expect you to enjoy your time with us!

Volunteers live a few minutes walk away from site with host families in the village, sharing their facilities. Our host families are kind and very hospitable. Squat toilets will be a novelty for many of our volunteers, but are not as frightening as some suppose. Water comes from a well. Our meals are taken communally at the Expedition dig house, which is located on site.
AGEN provides travel, food and accommodation for volunteers during their time on expedition. Including airline tickets, it costs us £1500 a head to run the expedition. We ask our volunteers to raise an equivalent amount of funds in donations for AGEN.
We encourage all volunteers to explore what avenues are available to them for raising some or the entire donation through grants; depending on your situation we may be able to provide advice.
