Abstract: The scarce vegetation of the present Maltese countryside makes it difficult to envisage the Maltese Islands as a portion of a continent with rivers flowing through a vast region of lush vegetation and virgin forests, where pigmy elephants kept company with hippopotami, deer and gigantic tortoises, while carnivorous animals prowled in search of food. If travel through time were possible, this would be the picture presented to a time-traveller who ventures to the Maltese Islands region of about one million years ago. This picture has been built on the basis of evidence found in various pliestocene deposits in Malta.
