This paper's topic is a database of all archaeological sites excavated and surveyed by Israel in the West Bank and East Jerusalem since 1967. This database project, conducted by the author with Rafi Greenberg in Tel Aviv University (Greenberg and Keinan 2007, 2009; Keinan, forthcoming), was created by collating administrative data from Israeli organisations and archaeological data from publications. This inventory is comprehensive, accessible to anyone, and is the only source of information which includes all Israeli records since 1967. However, this paper focuses on its problems and limitations, especially in relation to its use for Cultural Heritage Management purposes, and also on how to try and overcome them.
This is a metadata only record.
