Yesterday and Today in the Land of Israel:
How the Middle East Conflict Brings Past and Present Together on the Field of Archaeology

It’s a mine field, with implications that may well determine the course of events, geopolitically, for the Middle East and the entire world. It’s exciting enough that there are always “Indiana Jones” adventures lurking in the background, including fantastic new discoveries, as well as age-old discussions about the fate of the Ark of the Covenant, among other things.
