Informative archaeological finds exhibition

A little of the archaeological heritage of the Maltese Islands excavated over many years of discoveries in various localities was exhibited at the entrance to Valletta on a day when the EU celebrated the continent’s archaeological heritage.

The Superintendant of Cultural Heritage, Joseph Magro Conti, said the exhibition is taking place to enable the public to appreciate archaeological works, the way they are cleaned and documented as well as their conservation and the way they are exhibited in the National Archaeological Museum. Magro Conti said there are many layers of Malta’s history that go back many thousands of years and have yet to be excavated.

He said much has been found and is still being found and the exhibition is showing earthenware, bones, metals and stone works.

The Minister for Justice and Culture, Owen Bonnici, said the exhibition served to illustrate and underline archaeological works other than in museums and the ways these are documented and safeguarded by the Superintendance. He said the exhibits will be in place for several days and forms part of the initiative European Archaeological Day that was first launched in France in 2010 to promote further the work of entities that specialise in archaeology.
