As an Israeli human rights professional who is also the holder of an MA in Hebrew Bible and a former guide at the Bible Lands Museum in Jerusalem, I found myself in a unique position in my approach to archaeology in the West Bank.

In this talk I will share my approach to this dilemma. This talk is sponsored by the New Israel Fund of Canada.
