Abstract: Carnival in Malta is one of the most important cultural festivals on the island, dating back to the 15th century and the arrival of the Order of St John. The Notarial Archives are home to notarial deeds documenting the performance of dancers and musicians who entered into agreements with official entities or private patrons, especially during the Carnival period. These particular documents have given cultural historians a deeper understanding of the rights that such entertainers had during the Carnival festivities.
