12 maltatoday | WEDNESDAY • 22 JANUARY 2020 CULTURE Open day at Borg in-Nadur ON Sunday, 26 January, Herit- age Malta is inviting the pub- lic to an Open Day which will be held at the prehistoric site of Borg in-Nadur in Birzebbu- ga. Admission will be free of charge. The landscape of Birzebbuga has always intrigued archaeol- ogists, due to its richness in ar- chaelogical remains and sites, including Għar Dalam and the Roman villa at Ta' Kaccatura. Around 500m away from Għar Dalam, situated high be- tween two valleys and over- looking St George's Bay, one finds also the megalitihic site of Borg in-Nadur. The site was in use during both the late Tem- ple Period (3,150 – 2,500 BC) and the Bronze Age (2,400 – 700 BC). Archaeological excavations that were done on site by ar- chaeologist Margaret Murray in the 1920s provided signifi- cant information which shed further light on the difference between the Temple Age and the Bronze Age. The public can learn more about this site during a number of guided tours which are being organised during the day. At 10am and 2pm, the guided tour will be in Maltese, whereas at noon and at 4pm, the guided tour will be in English. A max- imum of 25 persons can join each tour. The opening hours for this event are from 9am un- til 5pm.
