Lost in translation
Brian Johnston / 09.03.2006
When it comes to languages, Malta is a confusing place. The name Malta itself is either a corruption of malat, Phoenician for port, or of meli, Greek for honey, which was its main export in early times. But Maltese itself is a curious language closely akin to Arabic, so by a quirk of linguistic history, the Maltese are the only Christians who pray to Allah.

The stone age temples of Malta
Ann Monsarrat / 09.03.2006
During the first half of the present century European archaeologists, puzzling over the similarities between ancient cultures, came up with the diffusion theory: a steady spread westwards of ideas, skills and inventions from the early civilizations of the Near East. In this way the mud-brick ziggurats of ancient Sumeria (the first temples known to man) had influenced the Egyptian pyramids (the oldest stone monuments in the world) and Malta's megalithic buildings were a mere reflection of the glories of ancient Greece.

Malta site explained It wasn't little green men, just farmers scratching a living
Maev Kennedy Arts and heritage correspondent / 08.10.2003
The mystery of a prehistoric site cited as, variously, a launch pad for little green men or the tracks leading to Atlantis, could be finally solved. Known as the Maltese Clapham Junction, the expanse of scrubby fields and barren rock is a bewilder ing complex of tracks believed to be up to 6,000 years old, gouged into solid limestone of the island whose megalithic temples are the oldest stone buildings in the world.
