Roman Catacomb at the Wignacourt Museum, Rabat

Members of the GAM, volunteered for the initial clearing of a catacomb found in the premises of the Wignacourt Museum. Two saddle-tombs, a window tomb, an agape table and the original entrance of the catacomb were uncovered after clearing of the rubble gathered during the digging of the nearby World War II shelters. An underlying soil infill was left undisturbed and the continuation of the investigation now handed over to the Museum authorities.(Internet Provisional report of the group's work will soon appear.)
 

GAM Datatbase

The group intends to set up a database of videos,  photographs and other sources of information on the local archaeological heritage.  These will hopefully be used in discussions and activities organised for the members. Anyone having material which might be of interest can contact the committee members.
