Abstract: Sir Thernistocles Zammit is one of the most distinguished persons: as doctor, scientist, politician, archaeologist and author, yet his reputation rested mainly on his early career as a doctor and medical scientist. It is easy to see the archaeological excavations or pictures of them, but to see his scientific work one must find his original papers in libraries or discover his restored laboratory in an unmarked government office which few people will ever see. 1 A recent biography of Zammit is most welcome,2 but it is very difficult to appreciate his early achievements, especially as his famous experiments are absent. His medical and research career is split in several sections: VoL I (386 pages) at 221- 235,251-256 and 259, voL II (484 pages) at 36-59, 69-115 and 121-166. There is no subject
