This online exhibition features a collection of recently excavated finds from Vani, a major Colchian city. This collection was put together by the Georgian National Museum with help from ISAW (The Institute for the Study of the Ancient World) in New York.
In these pages you can explore the exhibition in a variety of ways. You can investigate the contents of the graves or learn about aspects of Colchian culture such as metalworking, religious ritual or wine making. You can also read the myth of the golden fleece and about the region's history.
A series of events will accompany the exhibition: including lectures, courses and family activities.
