The Udabno Project is an archaeological fieldwork in Eastern Georgia which includes three settlements from ca. 11th \10th century BC (Udabno I, II and III). The project aims to provide information about the settlement of this period of time. Extensive surveys including geomagnetic prospection took place before the excavations and these are all reveal proto-urban settlement structures. In this project, one of the most important investigations is the pit dwellings, which are located in the middle of the settlement. The primary goal of this thesis is to reveal the construction process of those pit dwelling, House D, at Iron Age Udabno III by studying the excavation reports in order to be able to understand Udabno within its chronological and geographical context as well as shed light on the societal structure.
