Palestine Exploration Fund’s photostream

The Palestine Exploration Fund has posted some fascinating historical photos from the nineteenth and early twentieth-century that will be of interest to students of historical geography and archaeology. The link is here.

Once you get there scroll down to the second line of photos where you will see a photo made sometime between 1930 and 1936 of John Garstang working at Jericho. He is making photos of the abundance of pottery found at that spot.

Working through this collection is going to be fun.

The photos are marked “© All rights reserved.” Those who wish to use them for educational purposes should be able to do so under the copyright Fair Use provision.

  1. I find your “possibly related posts” to be offensive, racist, hate mongering, inaccurate, distorted propaganda. Here it is:
    Help Students For Palestine raise funds to break Israel’s Siege of Gaza!

  2. Please note that those links are “Automatically generated.” I have nothing to do with that. I have carefully avoided allowing this blog (meaning what I write and approve) to become a place for political matters.

  3. Your stance on politics is what I thought it was because I have been following your blog for a while, and found it useful. However, I also wanted you to know what the “automatically generated” was doing to your non-political stance. It was apparently associating you with politics of the worst sort, and needed a statement of your non-political stance to counterbalance it. Thanks for the link, I’ve already been there and there are some good photos.
