The Philistine street was established by Nathan Yadlim, member of Kibbutz Revadim, next to the Kibbutz dinning room. Its purpose is to present the material culture of the Philistines as reflected in the archaeological discoveries made at Ekron, a Philistine city 1 mile east of the Kibbutz. The exhibition includes a reconstructed potter’s workshop, an olive press, altars, a loom, Temple utensils, a plough, a carriage, and a tomb with a clay anthropoid coffin.
Visiting the Philistine Street
The exhibition is within the kibbutz. It is open year-round, but the visit must be pre-arranged and there is also an admission fee. It is also possible to drive from the kibbutz to the archaeological site of Ekron. A visit to the site can be combined in a guided day tour in the Judean Foothills (the Shephelah).
