Abstract: A Company-sponsored work project has unearthed the remains of an extensive Roman Villa in Malta. This account from the archaeological section of the National Museum reports the progress so far : Since the discovery in 1963 of a Punico-Roman rock-cut tomb with a time span from the second century B.C. to the third century A.D. and a number of stray stone blocks indicating the possibility of ruins in the vicinity, the Museum Department had suspected that there were archaeological remains at Zetjun. This was confirmed in the following year when the Department carried out the first soundings in a mound of earth in the grounds of a local school. Preliminary field work revealed a large water-cistern, a stretch of a stone water-conduit and an area paved with stone slabs.
