Abstract: Hal-Tarxien, a group of four megalithic temples, just over a mile south of Valletta in Malta, discovered by Professor Sir Temistocle Zammit in 1914 and excavated by him in that and the following year. The temples consist of a semicircular forecourt with an entrance in the centre giving on to a corridor leading to two or three oval unroofed areas set one behind the other and terminating in an apse, the whole surrounded by a mound of earth and stones contained in a retaining wall.
