TV interview about Moshe Dayan’s antiquities collection

This weekend, there was a TV documentary on the history of political corruption in Israel, and one of the topics was Moshe Dayan’s obsession with collecting antiquities (and excavating them illegally) and the fact that the government “looked the other way” at the time.

As part of this discussion, I was interviewed at the Israel Museum, where various objects from his collection are on exhibit.

See the clip below. I appear at 9:05, 9:50 and 10:00
