Communication Strategy of the Dmanisi, Vani and Dzaliza Museum-Reserves The Georgian National Museum

The Georgian National Museum (GNM) was established in 2004 and united Country’s major museums. Complex renovation process, considering adaptation of the modern museum standards started. Creation of friendly, interactive environment for the audience who can spend pleasant time in the museum while gaining new knowledge is part of the process. Renovated Dmanisi Museum-reserve, where 1.8 million years old human ancestors were unearthed, opened in 2009. Visitors are given a unique chance to enjoy ruins of a medieval city and the prehistoric archaeological site at the same time, while interacting with archaeologists and observing their working process. Vani Museum-Reserve in western Georgia (Colkheti) includes remains of the Temple City, an expedition base and the museum. Discoveries of the rich burials dating back to 5 th – 4 th cc. BC explain why Colkheti was referred to as the Land of the Golden Fleece in Greco-Roman sources. Dzalisa Museum 2 nd c. BC. – 4 th c. AD. is one of the most important archeological monuments in the historic kingdom of Kartli (Iberia, eastern Georgia). Streets and squares, public buildings and temples decorated with distinguished mosaic were discovered in the City. Presentation covers communiction strategy of the GNM for its Museum-reserves. How we are working to improve the visitor expariance in Dmanisi and create it for Vani and Dzalisa for their reopening after the renovation works are finished.

New diagnosis for species of Plutomurus Yosii (Collembola, Tomoceridae),with descriptions of two new species from Georgian caves .

Under the framework of SRNSF’s call for travel grants,Shalva Bardjadze participated The 23th International Conference, dedicated to the underground biology. Where he made a presentation : New diagnosis for species of Plutomurus Yosii (Collembola, Tomoceridae),with descriptions of two new species from Georgian caves . Two new species of the genus Plutomurus, P. revazi sp. nov. from Prometheus and Satsurblia caves and P. eristoi sp. nov. from Satevzia Cave are described, illustrated and differentiated from other morphologically closely related species. A high variability in the number of teeth in the claw, unguiculus and mucro of P. revazi sp. nov. demonstrate that these characters are not useful for species diagnosis. However, dorsal chaetotaxy was shown to be stable character for this purpose. Anal-ysis of DNA sequences for the COI and 28S genes is congruent with species-level groups delimited by chaetotaxy, and provide additional support for chaetotaxy as the most reliable morphological character system to distinguish species in Plutomurus. A key to species of the genus Plutomurus found in Georgia is provided, which for the first time includes char-acters of the macrochaetotaxy.
