‘An Orphan in the Caucasus’ – Talk by Donald Rayfield 17th November
‘An Orphan in the Caucasus’: the mysterious origins and connections of the Georgian Langauge
Donald Rayfield will discuss the relationship (proven and possible) between Georgian and other European, Anatolian and other Caucasian languages, and the way various theories have been manipulated over the last century or two.
Emeritus Professor of Russian at Queen Mary, University of London, author of ‘The Literature of Georgia’, editor-in-chief of ‘A Comprehensive Georgian-English Dictionary’ and having just completed a ‘History of Georgia’, Donald Rayfield is undoubtedly one of the most interesting and popular speakers at BGS events. Not to be missed by anyone interested in Georgia.

Somerset House, Strand, London, WC2R 0RN
