This chapter briefly describes the setting up by Dame Kathleen Kenyon of a major project of archaeological excavation in Jerusalem in 1961, and its contemporary aims based on scientific processes. Archaeological knowledge of the city at the time was very limited, based on old excavations, mostly inadequately published. Kenyon’s technical competence to achieve this was based on archaeological experience gained during excavation in Great Britain, Palestine and North Africa. The result was the creation of an archival record and study collection for future research.
