Apropos of the M. V. Andreeva's review

Author(s): George Leon Kavtaradze

We should probably express our gratitude to M. V. Andreeva, who undertook the work of reviewing our book on the chronology of the archaeological cultures of Georgia during the Eneolithic and Bronze Age, but at the same time, we should note with regret that the M.V. Andreeva's extensive review contains a number of annoying inaccuracies and distortions capable of misleading an unfamiliar reader. We consider it our duty to pay attention to them, especially since they create the impression that the book under review is flawed from a methodological point of view, and unfounded in content.
