This book has been dealing with a study of what archaeology has done in the context of Palestine and Israel. Beginning with the work of the London-based Palestine Exploration Fund's project of archaeological-cartographic “recovery,” examining the work of discipline building in which the Jewish Palestine Exploration Society and the British Mandate authorities both engaged, and scrutinizing specific excavations and scholarly debates that emerged as key projects in the Israeli discipline, the book has analyzed archaeological practice, the objects and landscapes it made, and the broader institutions and social and political fields, which both enabled and were transformed by archaeology's work. In so doing, the book has traced processes and practices out of which particular configurations of settler nationhood and its territorial locales were continuously substantiated and repeatedly extended.
