Malta offers a rare opportunity to examine the Punic settlements of the west Mediterranean from the first appearance of Phoenician traders and immigrants around 900 B.C. to approximately 200 A.D. when the local culture finally became Romanised. This book has brought together and thoroughly examined an immense body of new data from diverse sources--museum holdings, manuscript material and photographic archives. At the heart of this volume is a coherent and logical developmental sequence and chronology of Punic pottery. The evolution of the shape and structure of the rock-hewn tombs, and their distribution across the Maltese archipelago, have also been traced. Future researchers will find this work an invaluable tool for the study of Phoenicians abroad generally, as it presents many hitherto unpublished tomb groups and individual items from generally inaccessible collections. A detailed gazetteer of several hundred maltese Punic tombs has been described as a truly monumental effort.
