Abstract

So much of archaeological interest in Lebanon is inaccessible, covered by modern successors to ancient towns in which the competition between the archaeologist and the demands of modern society rumbles on. The long civil war that destroyed much of the country has had devastating effects on archaeological research and the preservation of cultural resources. Yet archaeology in Lebanon is alive and getting well again. Long-time member of the community of the American University of Beruit, Bill Ward chronicles the ebb and flow of archaeological discovery in this crucial crossroads of the ancient world.
