Over the past decade, we have conducted research in two regions of western Georgia, namely, Svaneti and Mingrelia (Samegrelo). In the associated pages, we describe the anthropological genetics work completed in each region and explore the implications of our findings for the history of Georgia and the Caucasus more broadly.
