Katharina Galor:
The Temple Mount

Talk Accompanying our exhibition "Welcome to Jerusalem" (with Audio Recording)

Archaeologist Katharina Galor talks about the historical and archaeological heritage of Jerusalem’s most controversial site – the Temple Mount (Har haBait), known in Islam as the Noble Sanctuary (Haram ash-Sharif).

In an effort to separate historical facts from religious and political agendas, she is involved in various scientific initiatives and explores how current conflicts affect the protection and preservation of historical sites of community value. Katharina Galor has excavated in France, Italy, and at various sites in Israel and is the author of numerous books and articles on archaeological and art historical themes.
