Pretty fireworks in Bugibba, shame they only lasted 13 minutes.  Barely worth going out onto the balcony to watch this show - I feel bad for the people who actually travelled to get here.

You gotta pay those bills

Accidentally watched some of the Maltese TV halftime chat for the World  Cup.  It is a grim looking studio set-up.

When the mysteries of ancient settlements fail to grab the attention of your six-year-old, you may need this list.

5000 Year Old Tarxien Temples Found In Malta By Farmers Ploughing Their Fields http://b4in.org/b42y

You know how it is – if you are a farmer that is – you are trying to plough one of your fields but keep striking great lumps of stone. You get a bit cheesed off about this after a while. But maybe it’s not so bad when you eventually discover you have hit upon the remains of some ancient temples beneath your field.

And very old temples they proved to be, some built around 3600 BC – so that’s over 5000 years ago. These are the Tarxien Temples of Malta – or what’s left of them, first discovered in 1913 though they were still being excavated in the 1950s.

Nevertheless it’s interesting to visit. It is believed that the buildings were built over a long period from about 3600 BC, as previously mentioned, to around 2500 BC.

The oldest remains are as shown in the photo below. These were built of smaller stones. The buildings were unfortunately damaged by the farmers with their ploughing.
