Selective Remembrances

This chapter examines the “second stage” of archaeology in Israel and argues that the state has loosened its interference in the reclamation of the past. It discusses Israel's realization that archaeology has an economic role and that a flexible remote past is one that will attract tourists. This chapter suggests that the relationship between archaeology, religion, and the past is influenced not only by the state, but by the tourist industry and consumers as well.

Keywords:   archaeology, economic role, religion, tourist industry, Israel, consumers
