dc.description.abstractThe Maltese Islands are located some 90 km from Sicily, 300 km east of Tunis and 350 km north of Libya. As such they are amongst the most isolated islands of the Mediterranean after the outlying elements of the Balearics to the west. This isolation is relative but nevertheless provides an important physical framework, both for the availability of resources and for the construction of the identity of its inhabitants from prehistoric to modern times (Fig. 2.1).en_GB
