Description

Sun, Moon, and Stars at the Temples of Mnajdra

The megalithic temples of Malta, one of UNESCO’s World heritage sites, have been a continued attraction for exploring unanswered questions about prehistoric culture. In this book, Tore Lomsdalen situates the temples in their archaeological context and reviews the archaeoastronomical  surveys of them. He then turns to the question of intentionality in the alignment of the Mnajdra South temple.

Lomsdalen presents the result of years of fieldwork conducted at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and introduces new evidence about and insights into the quixotic temple architecture and its relationships with the sky.
