Description

Israel's history can be understood through its vast archaeological heritage as much as through its written word. Kremer shows the vestiges of the country's complex multicultural saga, testimonies unearthed from the past that show a different perspective. It explores landscape as a place of amnesia and erasure and Israel as a strategic site where the past has been buried and history veiled by natural beauty. Kremer's Israel extends beyond the media headlines and tourist hotspots; its landscape acts as a cultural force, an instrument in the construction of identity.
