The project's aim is to produce a new 14C supported periodisation of the Shida Kartli province of Georgia from the Chalcolithic to the Early Iron Age (5th-early 1st mill. BC), by completing the work in progress by the "Georgian-Italian Shida Kartli Archaeological Project" of Ca' Foscari University using unpublished data collected on the field since 2009 in the course of excavations at Natsargora and Aradetis Orgora/Doghlauri (Puturidze, Rova 2012; Rova et al. in Rova, Tonussi 2017; Gagoshidze, Rova 2015, 2018a, b). The study will follow the methods successfully applied, for the late 4th-early 3rd millennium BC., in Passerini et al. 2016, 2018, in press in collaboration with E. Boaretto of the Weizmann Institute of Science (Rehovot, Israel). 14C dates will be evaluated in connection with the sites' stratigraphy and associated materials, combined following the principles of Bayesian modelling, and compared with published data from other sites of the region
