Abstract: The purpose of the exercise reported here was to establish whether and to what extent the remains of the megalithic building at Xrobb l-Għaġin survive today, as part of a wider discussion of vulnerability of the archaeological resource in coastal environments. This goal has been achieved, through an examination of the archival record created a century ago, and observations of the remains that are visible on the surface of the site today. In addition, an unexpected discovery was made, which promises to shed new light on attitudes to monumentality and its landscape setting in Late Neolithic Malta.
