Mapping A Shared Past: The West Bank Archaeological Database Project

Too often, the archaeological heritage of the Holy Land is seen as a bone of contention, rather than as an opportunity to understand the diversity of human cultures that has created one of the most fascinating historic landscapes in the world. In our talk, we would like to describe how a responsible and critical evaluation of Israeli archaeological activity in the occupied West Bank can contribute to a future rapprochement between Israelis and Palestinians. We will outline the content of the database and its scientific value, and discuss its role in the recently concluded work of the Israeli-Palestinian Archaeological Working Group.
