Malta's prehistory is truly ancient
You might have taken a summer drive down to Stonehenge, or even experienced the almighty pyramids near Giza in Egypt. However, in Malta, megaliths exist that predate even those ancient feats of engineering.
In fact, there are seven recognised megalithic sites where some of the world’s oldest freestanding stone structures proudly remain today, waiting for your exploration. That includes mysterious stone circles at Skorba and the magnificent angular archways of Tarxien.
The ancient mysteries don’t stop there. The island is home to a cave network known as Ghar-Dalam, or the Caves of Darkness, which are said to be the earliest human habitation on the island.
And across Malta’s island clusters, the bedrock features paths carved into the ground for unknown purposes, but they’re commonly held to have been ancient thoroughfares for carts carrying goods.
