The past is never dead. It isn’t even past. Nowhere is this truer than in the Middle East. Every footstep, every shovel, every location is part of a millennial old story being played out in deadly seriousness by the Israelis and Palestinians today. In a world where everyone has the right to their own opinions and to their own facts, how can we ever know what happened?

We will explore what we know and what we don’t know about Israel and Palestine in ancient times and today.
