The late prehistory of Malta : essays on Borġ in-Nadur and other sites( )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Borġ in-Nadur, on the south-east coast of Malta, is a major multi-period site, with archaeological remains that span several thousand years. In the course of the Late Neolithic, the steep-sided ridge was occupied by a large megalithic temple complex that was re-occupied in the succeeding Bronze Age. In the course of the second millennium BC, it was heavily fortified by a massive wall to protect a settlement of huts. Excavations were carried out here in 1881 and again in 1959. This volume brings together a number of contributions that report on those excavations, providing an exhaustive account of the stratigraphy, the pottery, the lithic assemblages, the bones and the molluscs
The Maltese Archipelago at the dawn of history : reassessment of the 1909 and 1959, excavations at Qlejgha tal-Bahrija and other essays by Davide Tanasi( )

5 editions published in 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Maltese Archipelago at the Dawn of History. Reassessment of the 1909 and 1959 excavations at Qlejgha tal-Bahrija and other essays is a collection of essays focusing on the reassessment of the multifaceted evidence which emerged by excavations carried out in 1909 and 1959 in the settlement of Bahrija, a key site for the understanding of the later stages of Maltese prehistory before the beginning of the Phoenician colonial period. The two excavations, largely unpublished, produced a large quantity of ceramic, stone and metal artefacts together with skeletal remains. The reappraisal of the material will shed light on critical moments of central Mediterranean prehistory. Main topics such as the Aegean-Sicily-Malta trade network, mass migration movements from the Balkans towards the Central Mediterranean and the colonial dynamics of the Phoenicians operating in the West are addressed in the light of new data and with the support of an array of archaeometric analyses

8 editions published in 2019 in Italian and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the cultural development of the Sicilian indigenous communities the Middle Bronze Age (from the mid15th to the mid13th century BCE represents a crucial phase characterised by an escalation of the relationship with the Aegean and the Maltese Archipelago and by the effect of that relationship on the local mortuary practices This book analyses two Siracusan necropoleis of Cozzo del Pantano and Matrensa among the most important for this period originally explored and published in preliminary form by Paolo Orsi in 1893 and 1898 The study of over 400 artefacts offered for the first time with updated technical drawings and colour pictures analyses ongoing issues relating to chronology The critical examination of the multifaceted phenomenon of funerary religion and of the afterlife of the two cemeteries in the Classical and postClassical period makes this book an invaluable reference work for scientific literature on the archaeology of ancient Sicily"Publisher's web site

Trade, interaction and change : trace elemental characterization of Maltese Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age ceramics using a portable x-ray fluorescence spectrometer by Frederick Salvatore Pirone( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The results of this research support my hypothesis in part, suggesting that neither ceramics nor raw clay materials played a significant role in overseas trade during Maltas period of cultural isolation, which extended from the Ġgantija phase to the end of the Tarxien phase. On the other hand, ceramics played a more active role in Maltas interaction networks during periods of connectivity with Sicily, for instance in the Neolithic Age. This study also provides the first chemical evidence that Malta exported pottery to Sicily during the Bronze Age and that Maltas contact with Mycenaeans was indirect in nature. The findings presented here thus contribute to understanding Maltas role in trade and interaction networks from the Neolithic to the Bronze Ages and point to new approaches to exploring the cultural change that becomes apparent in the Maltese Temple Period
