Malta. Prehistory and Temples Paperback / softback
The large stone temple structures on Malta are amongst the earliest such constructions in the world, long before the pyramids were built in Egypt.
This super book forms a pictorial record of all the temples on Malta, whilst also providing background information on the social and cultural history of the period.
Built between c.3500 and 2500 BC, the temples reflect, and were part of, a period of great development on Malta and Gozo, especially in artistic and architectural terms.
This is a clear, well illustrated account of the temple-building period, as well as of what went before and what came after.
