Life and Language in Georgia: Exhibition organised by the Embassy of Georgia to Ireland

Monday, 29 May 2017
During Library Opening Hours
Georgia is a land of great antiquity, located on the edge of Eastern Europe at a crossroads between Europe and Asia. In Homeric legend, Georgia attracted Argonauts in search of the Golden Fleece to its shores. Nowadays, tourists are drawn to the Black Sea beaches, the lofty mountains, the holy sites of ancient Christian parables and its deep caves are a rich resource for palaeontologists.
 
The exhibition will also highlight the Georgian alphabet, one of 14 distinct alphabets in use in the world today and one of oldest. Georgian, along with Svan, Megrelian and Laz, belongs to the Kartvelian family, languages spoken by people in and around the Caucasas mountains.
