Come To ✠ Comino

Malta's Smallest Inhabited Island

✠ Archaeological Records ✠

Bearing in mind the richness of archaeological treasures in Malta and Gozo, very little archaeological research has been carried out on Comino though an amphora containing an adult skeleton and anointing oils was discovered in 1912 in Santa Marija Bay and possibly dates to around 200 AD. It consisted of two sliced halves of a Roman amphora. These artefacts are now housed in the Gozo Archaeology Museum in Rabat (Victoria). Clearly more research and field work could reveal more archaeological features of this fascinating island.
