Abstract: A new paradigm for archaeological site management is established in Malta during the last quarter of the nineteenth century. The history of how this paradigm is shaped by the British colonial context is traced. A series of key innovative measures in archaeological site management that take place from the 1880s onwards at and around Borġ in-Nadur are considered. Practices and attitudes that emerged in that seminal period have continued to pervade approaches to archaeological resource management down to the present. A paradigm shift may be required to achieve a more integrated, socially embedded and holistic stewardship of the archaeological landscape.
