BibArch Home Up

A recurring problem in biblical archaeology, and in archaeology in general, remains the lack or publication of the results of excavations. This responsibility lies with the excavation director.

The ethical issue concerns the public right to know and the injury to the scientific community resulting from failure or even slowness in publishing careful excavation reports versus the archaeologist’s right of privacy and proprietary interest in his or her work product. Some researchers hold on to their data for decades and deprive the public and other researchers of information that could be of assistance in other excavations. Unfortunately, in some excavations there never will be a final excavation report.
