Authors: Glock, Albert 
Keywords: Excavation (Archaeology) - Palestine - History;Cultural conflict

Abstract: One of the positive developments in archaeology in recent years is the increasing awareness of the role of "bias." I am not referring here to "operational bias"-the way in which natural and cultural forces (e.g., climate and sediment cover, the presence or absence of scavenging living communities) distort the archaeological record. Rather, I want to discuss the cultural bias of the archaeologist that distorts our understanding of the past.
