This article discusses the record of hominid occupation of Georgia during the Pleistocene. It concludes that Georgia was initially colonized by the early Pleistocene and that it was continuously occupied from the middle Pleistocene onward. This continuous occupation was made possible by both altitudinal zonality, which offered human colonists a great variety of resources, and the fact that this region was less affected by Pleistocene climatic fluctuations than other parts of Eurasia.
