The lecture will report on the recent work on Gozo in 2014 and 2015 at the sites of Tac Cawla, In Nuffara, Ggantija and Santa Verna, and the soils of the surrounding landscape. This fieldwork has uncovered a sequence from the earliest Neolithic (older than 5,000 BC) to the later Bronze Age (c. 1000 BC), with systematic recovery of sediments, seeds and bones for understanding the food economy and its dating. This is teamwork and we are giving the opportunity to younger colleagues to contribute to the reporting of the results.
This fieldwork is complementary to the work currently being undertaken by Ronika Power and Bernadette Mercieca on the human remains from the Brochtorff Xaghra Circle, and the work on deep cores recovering pollen, sediments and landsnails by Patrick Schembri, Christopher Hunt, Katrin Fenech, Rory Flood and Michelle Farrell, which can be presented on another occasion. The work is also complementary to the study of the Mgarr Ix Xini valley by Anthony Pace and his team in recent years.
