Abstract: A new Gozo began to take shape in the last quarter of the sixteenth century. By the year 1575, the island had recovered to quite an extent from the cataclysmic Great Siege of 1551. The population of the island which from around 6000 before the Siege had fallen to a few hundred in the following decade, was climbing steadily and was then close to 2300. Agricultural activity was thriving again and commerce made a slow recovery, with the result that the economy began heading towards a revival.
