Abstract: Gozo and Malta lie midway between Gibraltar and Lebanon, at almost the geographical centre of the Mediterranean. Sicily is 58 miles to the north, Tripoli 220 miles due south, and Tunis slightly over 200 miles to the west. The Maltese archipelago thus forms a port of call between Europe and North Africa, between the Christian and Moslem worlds. The Maltese have been in contact with both for centuries, and the cultures of both have contributed many customs and ideas which the islanders have adapted for their own use. Gozo is only 9 miles by 5 miles, with an area of 26 square miles, and the whole archipelago is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. Emigration has been one solution to the problems of overcrowding. and contact has been maintained between home and overseas communities.
