Excerpt from Review of Theology Philosophy, Vol. 1 The earliest excavations in Palestine were not undertaken with any definite archeological purpose, beyond the attempt to Obtain a more precise knowledge of the topography of ancient Jerusalem. Only subsequently and towards the end of last century, was a more careful examination made of the Kleinfunde, and particularly of the pottery. In 1 890 F linders-petrie was entrusted by the Palestine Ex ploration Fund with the oversight of operations. It was he who first pointed out that in the absence of inscriptions or other similar indications, pottery was the one means of determining the antiquity of the various layers or strata. It was the key, he asserted, to the true understanding of the archeology of Palestine, and later discoveries have proved that in the main he was right.
