Malta is a tiny island in the middle of the Mediterranean. Its gigantic stone temples are among the oldest free-standing monuments in the world—earlier than Stonehenge, earlier than the Great Pyramid at Giza. They are also unique in construction and floorplan. What is their relationship to the sun and stars? Why are there so many? Are the temples and the so-called Fat Lady statues evidence of ancient Goddess worship? What about the mysterious cart-ruts that crisscross the limestone plateaus? What are they? Was the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum only an underground mausoleum, or was it also used for initiations and dream incubation? These are just some of the questions we explore.
Numerous maps, photos, and graphics enhance the descriptions of these fascinating places.
