Abstract

abstract:

During the Arab Revolt in Mandate Palestine (1936–1939), the British army constructed numerous "picquets," small field fortifications, within or nearby Arab villages. The soldiers and police who operated from these forts were tasked with countering insurgent activities and pacifiying the adjacent area. The remains of these picquets, still scattered throughout the Galillee and Samaria, can offer insight regarding the revolt and the British campaign against it and help researchers to better understand this seminal period in the history of the Holy Land.
