Abstract: During March and April, a party of staff and students from the Geographical Department of the University of Durham spent some five weeks in Malta, studying agricultural problems. Their researches have been collected in a large hectographed volume of some 115 pages, including a number of black :and white sketches and diagrams The Report entitled "Agriculture in Malta, A Survey of Land Use" is probably the most important account ever published on the subject. Durham has a reputation of being first in the field, thus the first history of England was written by the Venerable Bede, a Durham monk; a Bishop of Durham set a new standard in the writing of diaries this century, and the Durham geographers have written the first scientific geographical account of Maltese agriculture.
