Hal Saflieni Hypogeum,Malta.


The Hal Saflieni Hypogeum (underground cemetery) was discovered in 1902 on a hill overlooking the innermost part of the Grand Harbour of Valletta, in the town of Paola. It is a unique prehistoric monument, which seems to have been conceived as an underground cemetery, originally containing the remains of about 7,000 individuals. The cemetery was in use throughout the Zebbug, Ggantija and Tarxien Phases of Maltese Prehistory, spanning from around 4000 B.C. to 2500 B.C.Received with thanks from Silvan in Malta..
