Selective Remembrances

This chapter focuses on Georgian scholar Z. Alexidze's discovery that the Caucasian Albanian language is directly ancestral to Udin, a northeast Caucasian language. It analyzes the Albanian Book as a cautious tale of the manipulation of archaeological and historical data and shows the inconsistencies in the language and content. This chapter explains that this so-called Albanian Book is an eighth-century manuscript that recorded the long-obscured early history of a patchwork of ethnic groups in the Caucasian mountains.

Keywords:   Caucasian Albanian language, Z. Alexidze, Udin, Albanian Book, ethnic groups, Caucasian mountains
