Abstract: The fortification of Malta by the Knights of St John used the latest design in defence technology on an ever expanding programme. Fort Manoel on the Isoletto dominating Marsamxett was part of a circle of works protecting the principle harbours. The fort and its chapel were designed by de Manodion. Work began in 1723 when Anton Manoel de Vilhena was Grand Master. Later, in the British period, the building was occupied by military personnel. During war time considerable damage was inflicted. Recent restoration work on the fabric of the fort has revealed various artefacts including a number of tobacco pipes. The six European pipes and two Turkish style chibouk or reed pipes are described here.
