Digging For Victory

Beneath the land on which they are trying to build a lasting peace, Israel and Palestine are locked in war. The battleground is the region's ancient history and the soldiers are archaeologists bulldozing evidence that does not support their political cause. Writer William Dalrymple reports on war amongst the ruins in the Middle East.
