Abstract: In 1961, while work was underway for the construction of the new village secondary school in Zejtun, ancient remains were discovered. The archaeological excavations that began at the site in 1964 revealed a large cistern and some water channels, together with an area paved in stone slabs. Eight years later, an annual excavation project, led by the Museums Department, began and in the course of short excavation sessions that continued until 1976, the remains of a Roman villa covering an area of about 2,000 square meters were revealed.
Description: The conservation and research of the Zejtun Roman Villa is a project undertaken by the University of Malta in collaboration with Din l-Art Helwa and made possible through the generous support of the HSBC Malta Foundation.
