Ancient Temple

Tarxien (Ancient Temple) by fitzcoraldo The dodgy looking stone in the carved panel at the front of the altar would once have matched the surrounding panel. When the stone was removed it revealed a small compartment which contained a flint knife. Animal bones were found at the back of the altar indicating that some form of sacrificial ceremony took place here.
