Nokalakevi is the modern name for ancient Archaeopolis or Tsikhekuji in western Georgia. There were many churches in the settlement, but a C5th-C6th basilica now dedicated to the Forty Martyrs and restored by the National Agency for the Cultural Preservation of Georgia is still in use. There are two other basilicas in the immediate vicinity of the Church of Forty Martyrs but only the foundations of these survive. The excavations are being conducted by an Anglo-Georgian team and a museum beside the site houses a number of early Christian artefacts.
