Art and Mysticism of Ancient European gods and consciousness explorations
On the autumn morning just after the full moon of the Equinox month, in the year 1460 BC, an un-named volcano in Southern Italy that had been silent for decades, suddenly burst into life and exploded. By the end of the following day, the islands of Malta and Crete were buried under ash, rock and mud, carried by an 80 meters high tsunami wave, where they remained lost and forgotten for the next 4,500 years.
Malta Temple Culture 3,500 BC Rituals
At the time of eruption, the temples were long abandoned by its builders, following a harsh climate change that increased storms and rains, removing layers after layers of carefully cultivated and for centuries fertilised land. The evidence of this catastrophic event was found on the skeleton of the last generation of Neolithic Temple Builders, around 2400 BC. In an attempt to keep the land from disappearing, many ancestors’ bones show the evidence of strained wrists.
A rich and bustling community of 2,000 people, at its peak, had built 66 temples during the period of 1,000 years. Now, a new exciting archaeological excavation at Tas-Silġ in Marsaxlokk, sheds further light about Neolithic Temple Builders of Malta.
