The satellite images from space have allowed Georgian archaeologists to discover an ancient settlement in Shiraki (Kakheti region, Eastern Georgia).
The first phase of archaeological research will be completed in the coming days. Afterwards, we can talk about large-scale excavations.
If the assumptions of archaeologists are confirmed, the discovered ancient settlement will completely change the history of the country, Ilia Chavchavadze Tbilisi University Professor Kote Pitskhelauri told reporters.
According to one of the versions, the settlement dates back to the 10-12 centuries BC. It may be the capital of the ancient state, which is not mentioned in historical sources.
