Abstract: In the summer of 1929, the Maltese archaeologist Sir Themistocles Zammit led an exploratory excavation in government-owned fields in the valley of Ghajn Tuffieha (probably apple-tree spring) (Wettinger 2000: 191), Mgarr, wherein passes the eponymous perennial spring. There, with the help of eight workmen, he uncovered, through a series of exploratory, shafts, several structures dating back to the Roman period in Malta, as well as several mosaic pavements and paved passageways. The finds were of such importance that on July 1930 the investigation on this site resumed, leading to further discoveries.
