It explains that the idea of creating a homegrown Palestinian archaeology with a high level of professional training and vision was the brainchild of Albert Glock. This chapter also outlines the pragmatic steps necessary to create a credible Palestinian archaeology now that Palestinians are one step closer to realizing their dream of national sovereignty.
