Maltese Archipelago at the Dawn of History

Reassessment of the 1909 and 1959 Excavations at Qlejgħa tal-Baħrija and Other Essays

Davide Tanasi (Redaktør) ; David Cardona (Redaktør)

«'Like every good piece of research, this volume answers questions and raises new ones. It also offers a space to revisit conclusions and voice dissent where needed. The collaborative nature of the work is particularly welcome and it is hoped that this standard will be adopted across all archaeological research on the islands. This is the beginning of a new era for Bronze Age studies on the Maltese Islands.'»

Bahrija is a key site for understanding the later stages of Maltese prehistory before the beginning of the Phoenician colonial period.
