Join like-minded people for one of two exciting study tours exploring the history of one of the most ancient locations in the world.  We will explore Malta and its

neighbour Gozo and seek to understand the prehistoric history of the islands and the role of the Knights of St John in the Renaissance.  This tour is very competitively priced (c. one third the price of other similar tours) in order to make it widely available.

Expert guides

There will be evening lectures and discussions.    On the six-day tour on 19-24 June, lectures will be also be given by Profs Savona Ventura and also Moss, with topics covering:

* the  links between Malta and Atlantis

* the significance of the Sirius star system and

* the importance of the Knights of Malta and the Maltese Cross

* the possible significance of the so-called 'Cart Ruts'

You will be able to enjoy the unique experience of the summer solstice at Mnajdra South Temple.  There will be ample time for relaxation  and visiting Valletta and a market at a fishing port on both tours.
