Abstract: The Maltese islands boast of pre-historic sites of world heritage status. Dating back thousands of years, these gems drew the attention of not only archaeologists and historians, but also of artists. The latter range from nineteenth century painter Charles F. Brocktorff to ceramist Neville Ferry (1945-2011), and poets such as Achille Mizzi and Richard England. Charles Camilleri composed works such as Music of the Temples of Malta whilst John Galea's symphonic poem Ggantija recounts the legend of a virgin who was sacrificed to the gods.
