Abstract: Much has been written about the history of Malta regarding fortifications and warfare which has evolved from the Renaissance to recent times. No specific study has ever been attempted about the local aspects of aggression and defence in ancient times. This article attempts to investigate the causes of and the attitudes towards aggression in prehistoric times and the scenario of hostilities within the Mediterranean sphere in relation to evidence from the Maltese islands.
