‘Trails of Nomads’ Research Expedition in Georgia
The Trails of Nomads research expedition held a meeting with Georgian President, Salome Zourabichvili during the team’s visit in the country.
During the meeting, the parties discussed the ways to develop cooperation as well as on the great battle of Didgori, which is a significant historical event for Georgia.
The parties decided to establish a joint memorial facility at the battle field.
The Trails of Nomads expedition leader, Sapar Iskakov talked about the importance of ensuring the Government-level safety of the ancient Kipchak artifacts.
Meanwhile, Deputy chair of media holding Badrin Achkabel said that there are not much known about the history and culture of the Kipchak people outside of Georgia and in other parts of the world.
“In order to fill in this gap, I proposed to create a series of joint Georgian-Kazakh television programs,” he said.
According to the Georgian media manager, the program series will promote the history of the Georgian Kipchaks in the world.
“If the initiative finds support in Kazakhstan, the Georgian party is set to cover half of the expenses. Based on the available data, 40,000 Kipchak families moved to Georgia in the early 12th century. However, there is still much unknown information in the Kazakh-Georgian history,” Achkabel added.
Meanwhile, the Trails of Nomads expedition is set to move south to the city of Akhaltsikhe
The city was previously the capital of the Turkish-Kipchak state Atabek in the 13th to 16th centuries.
