Archaeological Association of Georgia

Mission statement of the Archaeological Association of Georgia


The core objective of the Archaeological Association of Georgia is to uphold and advance the field of archaeology in Georgia. Our focus lies in protecting the diverse cultural legacy of Georgia, while encouraging scientific research, implementing modern technologies and community involvement.

We believe that preservation of archaeological heritage is crucial not only for historical purposes but also for fostering a deeper appreciation and respect for Georgia's cultural identity. By advocating for effective conservation practices and regulations, the organization aims to safeguard and protect archaeological sites and artifacts that serve as crucial links to Georgia's illustrious ancient culture and history.

In order to reach our objectives, the organization highly values cooperation and forming partnerships not only by conventional means, but with the help of modern technologies. Our team and board members actively aim to forge alliances with both local and international organizations. By collaborating closely with government bodies and institutions, we are able to advocate for policies and regulations that promote the preservation of archaeological sites.

The Archaeological Association of Georgia works to involve the community in educational programs and initiatives. Through community involvement, outreach events, and awareness campaigns, we hope to foster a sense of accountability for the preservation of archaeological sites, both in individuals as well as in organizations.

Our goal is not just to study locations and environments that have cultural and heritage interests, but also to interact and raise awareness with the present inhabitants of those environments and locations.
