Site visit to the Meet the Phoenicians of Malta exhibition at the National Museum of Archaeology, Valletta

October 22, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm CEST

National Museum of Archaeology, Valletta
Republic St, Auberge de Provcence
Valletta, VLT 1112 Malta


Led by Mr. David Cardona, Senior Curator, Phoenician, Roman and Medieval Sites, Heritage Malta. Mr. Cardona will also take members round the Phoenician and Punic gallery on the top floor of the museum.

A Phoenician stone sarcophagus excavated last year at G─žajn Klieb, on the outskirts of Rabat,Malta is one of the major attractions in this exhibition. It brings to light the results of months of painstaking studies by a multidisciplinary team researching the sarcophagus and two other tombs discovered in the area, as well as their contents. The three tombs, although inherently different, shed light on the burial rituals of the earliest Phoenicians on the island.
