Ekron – Tel Miqne

Tel Miqne is a rather flat 200 dunams mound in the Shefelah region. Excavations carried out at the site by S. Gitin and T. Dothan eventually found an inscription prooving the site is Biblical Ekron, one of the five major cities of the Phlistines.

Unfortunately almost all of the finds are covered today, yet in the nearby kibbutz Revadim one can see a display of replicas of the some of the finds (The “Philistine Street”).
