Welcome to Malta’s largest archaeological attraction: the Temple Period. We have Maltese and British archaeologists to thank for this heritage that has been dug up since the early 20th century. Yet there are still unanswered questions why these people survived for so long then suddenly vanished. The FRAGSUS project—the largest international archaeological collaboration in Malta and Gozo—is trying to answer why.
Malta has a gem. Underneath metres of soil lie the remains of a Roman Villa. Archaeologists from the University of Malta have nearly finished excavating the site. The secrets they are digging out of the ground are pretty stunning. Words by Dr Edward Duca.
