in Jerusalem capture worldwide attention in various media outlets.
The continuing quest to discover the city's physical remains is not
simply an attempt to define Israel's past or determine its
historical legacy. In the context of the ongoing
Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it is also an attempt to
legitimate-or undercut-national claims to sovereignty. Bridging the
ever-widening gap between popular coverage and specialized
literature, Finding Jerusalem provides a comprehensive tour of the
politics of archaeology in the city. Through a wide-ranging
discussion of the material evidence, Katharina Galor illuminates
the complex legal contexts and ethical precepts that underlie
archaeological activity and the discourse of "cultural heritage" in
Jerusalem. This book addresses the pressing need to disentangle
historical documentation from the religious aspirations, social
ambitions, and political commitments that shape its interpretation.
