GAZA POTTERS STILL WORK BY HAND Potters' kilns, which have

been operated in Gaza in southern Palestine since the days of the Old Testament, are being removed to a site outside the town, to abate the smoke nuisance in the place renowned for the mighty Samson of old.

Although the transfer of the industry may bring about a certain amount of modernisations, the work will continue to be done by hand, as it has been for the past 2,000 and more years, during which time neither tools. workmanship, nor even the designs have undergone change. It is asserted that references to Gaza's potteries are found in history as early as 727 B.C.
