PALESTINIAN archeology is about a century old. The pioneers in Palestinian archeology were not professionals in the field of excavations; in fact, none existed anywhere when they carried on their work. Many errors were made before methods were developed that produced the greatest possible returns for the money, effort, and time spent in excavations.
