We are not desolate — we pallid stones;
Not all our power is gone;
Not all our fame;
Not all the magic of our high renown;
Not all the wonder that encircles us;
Not all the mysteries that in us lie
– Edgar Allan Poe, 1835
From the Middle East to the Atlantic Seaboard, the story of the First Farmers includes the oldest monumental buildings on earth. Ruins and artifacts from around the world are helping us understand changes that happened in very ancient times; changes that launched western civilization.
On the Mediterranean islands of Malta and Gozo, the legacy of an advanced prehistoric culture survives in monumental architectural and artistic achievement that offers us the most complete window on this pivotal era.
The study of Archaeology has come to include other sciences to better understand how we came to be who we are today, and gain perspective on how we can be better.
