Podcast: The Role of Archeology in the Conflict

Podcast: The Role of Archeology in the Conflict

Archeology affects many aspects of life and politics across Israel and Palestine. This week I interviewed Yonathan Mizrachi, an archaeologist who founded the organization Emek Shaveh. It describes itself at its website as “an organization of archaeologists and community activists focusing on the role of archaeology in Israeli society and in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

We talked about the role of archeology in Israeli governmental strategy regarding settlements and why shared histories are important and real.
