Abstract: One's historical awareness is very often based on a general overview of a topic. Hence, this dissertation was aimed at increasing the historical knowledge regarding the village of Zebbug. Throughout the research I came across many issues and curiosities that are absolutely ignored. These made me realise the lack of historical and cultural knowledge in our general society. I divided my dissertation in three main chapters. The first one "I 8th Century Zebbug ", gives an overview· of the sociopolitical issues that occurred in Malta during the 18th century and their recurrent effects on Zebbug. The second chapter then, is a profound demographical study of Zebbug throughout the stay of the Hospitaller Knights of St. John in Malta ( 1530-1798). In this section I gave a detailed account of the population growth during those days and sought to identify the reasons behind such radical alterations. This issue was followed by "The Urban Development of Zebbug" in the fmal part, where an explicit description was given in respect to the formation of Zebbug and its characteristics. This dissertation is intended to greaten the historical concern of any reader that appreciates history as a fascinating field. Furthermore I attempted to make use of a vocabulary that is clearly understood and pleasurable to read.
