It is no longer possible to do serious archaeology as an amateur. Today archaeologists must be full time professionals. Stated somewhat simply, the time that one could do archaeology in the Middle East with the Bible in one hand and the trowel in the other definitely belongs to the past. — Hans M. Barstad
Readers of BAR should take that to heart, and so should some of the archaeologists working at the ‘City of David’ site.
