Abstract: The area known as L-Iklin lies on the southernmost slope of the extensive hill on which Naxxar and Gharghur are perched. To the south the slope is enclosed by a triangle formed by Birkirkara, Balzan and Lija. The area had, to the author's knowledge, never produced any archaeological finds until in 1967 a group of youths were reported in the local papers to have discovered there a megalithic temple. The second site was partially explored by means of excavation in June 1975 before a house was built. over it. Ancient remains were uncovered while a building plot was being cleared for the laying of foundations. During the excavation of the same site I came to know from several individuals having in the neighbourhood of the existence of two old cisterns in the immediate vicinity.
