Archaeology of the South Caucasus

Statement: Hannah Chazin is working on a book project that explores the connections between pastoralism and political authority in the ancient South Caucasus. The book traces how modern ideas about human nature shaped accounts of pastoralism, reducing the value of herd animals to merely cash or calories and obscuring the dynamism of ancient pastoralist societies.
