Descendants of cave dwellers live in isolation on the Islands of Malta and develop prehistoric stone temples and complex megalithic structures older than the Pyramids, and then, like the Maya, disappear.

“The Caves of Darkness”, discovered by an amateur archaeologist reveal evidence of pigmy elephants and stone-age man supporting beliefs that the Maltese archipelago was a pre-historic land bridge between Sicily and Africa.

Temple and Tomb: Prehistoric Malta 3600 - 2500 BCE

Located between southern Italy and the northern coast of Africa, the Maltese archipelago was home to an astonishing and artistically rich prehistoric culture. During the later Temple Period (ca. 3600--2500 bce), the early Maltese constructed extraordinary megalithic complexes to house cultic and funerary rituals, and produced an outstanding range of aesthetically refined representations of the human form, the variety of which is unmatched in contemporary cultures. Temple and Tomb marks the first time that these objects have come to the United States, with the exhibition including sculptures in stone and clay, decorative architectural reliefs, and historic drawings, watercolors, and photographs. Together, they tell the story of a flourishing prehistoric culture whose architectural and aesthetic achievements remain largely unknown to an American audience.
