Ian Colvin is a historian specializing in the Late Roman and Byzantine history of the Caucasus regions. He studied classical and modern Georgian after receiving his MST in Byzantine Studies, and has devoted himself to excavations at the site of Nokalakevi, where an Anglo-Georgian research team is uncovering a late Roman period administrative centre and Hellenistic period cemetery, filled with exciting evidence of the region’s cosmopolitan past.
