1 Introduction
The area known today as Israel has a long and rich history quite out of proportion to its
geographical size. It has been a major focal point of archaeological interest since the early
19th century (Macalister 1925:13-75; Albright 1949:23-48), and this archaeological activity
has continued since the creation of the modern State of Israel in 1948. Everywhere
archaeological sites have been and are being identified and excavated. "Size for size", writes
Edward Bacon (1971:171), "there is probably more controlled native archaeological activity in
Israel than in any other country in the world."
