philistine street pottery

The Philistine street was established by Nathan Yadlin, 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.

Touring 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 tour to the Philistine Street can be combined in a guided day tour in the Judean Foothills (the Shephelah).
