Mission Impossible: the archaeology of Lampedusa in three days (episode 2)

22 May @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

POSTPONED FROM 13 MARCH. Lecture by Prof. Anthony Bonanno, Professor, Classics and Archaeology, University of Malta and Dr Ruben Borg, senior lecturer, Faculty for the Built Environment, University of Malta.

In the first half of the lecture, Prof. Bonanno will take up where he left in his lecture with the same title in 2018. He will give an account of his and Dr Ruben Paul Borg’s visit to Lampedusa in July 2016 on the invitation of Diego Ratti in his indefatigable endeavour to promote the archaeology of his island. The visit consisted of surface inspection of very faint circular markings on the ground suggestive of possible prehistoric huts, as well as a preliminary assessment of claimed ‘prehistoric sculptures’ collected by the same person.
