Michael Callahan was co-author on an article recently published in the prestigious journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America titled “Early Neolithic wine of Georgia in the South Caucasus.”

The research involved an international collaboration that took place over multiple years and provides the earliest biomolecular archaeological evidence of winemaking in the Near East, ca. 5900-5500 BC.

The article has sparked national and international media attention and its findings have been published in National Geographic, The New York Times, The Guardian and Newsweek, among others.
