This chapter investigates how a fringe religious group can influence archaeological study and interpretive outcomes, focusing on Gush Emunim's stake in archaeological pursuits in Israel. It describes how Gush Emunim appropriated the scientific discourse of archaeology to substantiate religious legends and discusses the uneasy intersection between archaeology and nationalism. This chapter also explores how national archaeology tends to reappear as a subversive practice in post-ideological societies.

Keywords:   religious group, Gush Emunim, national archaeology, Israel, scientific discourse, nationalism
