Ta’ Hammud was the only dolmen that could be excavated
on the Maltese islands and the pottery found allowed the attribution of
each of these monuments to the Tarxien Cemetery culture (Early Bronze Age).
The Dolmen consists of a horizontal slab of coralline limestone lying on
a number of supporting stones. Of note is the depression below the
Dolmen itself, intended to increase the size of the funerary chamber.
