Burial Monuments - SE Malta

Meeting Place:

Birzebbugia Church at 1.40pm, 31/1/99


A site visit to three different burial monuments dating back to 4000 years ago will give an opportunity to those present to appreciate the diversity of Bronze Age funerary remains. The three monuments include the Hal Far Menhir, Wied Znuber Dolmen* and Wied Maqbul cairns*.

Although not attributed to the Bronze Age, we will also visit the cave of Ghar Hassan which lies in the vicinity.

Torches and appropriate footwear for entering the cave are recommended

The sites marked with an asterisk(*) may not be accessible, and may have to be commented upon from a distance.
