June 28, 2015Malta’s prehistoric temple builders were an advanced civilisation, paying careful attention to align the Mnajdra complex with celestial activity right from its very inception, according to Norwegian academic Tore Lomsdalen.

In a book titled Sky and Purpose in Prehistoric Malta: sun, moon and stars at the temples of Mnajdra, Mr Lomsdalen introduces new evidence and insights into the temple architecture and its relationships with the sky.

The notion that megalithic monuments were deliberately constructed to align with the sun, moon and stars has been well documented. Mr Lomsdalen presents evidence based on archaeoastronomical observations, a field of study which bridges archaeology with astronomy. [...] timesofmalta.com
