In several areas of the island of Malta, and the nearby island of Gozo, there are intricate networks of parallel tracks carved into the limestone rock
which seem artificial origin. They are called "cart ruts". The ruts are up to two feet deep and more than 30km of them run in pairs criss-crossing the
island. This intricate network of "binary stone" is one of the trickiest puzzles that archeology trying for years to unravel. These parallel
grooves/tracks carved into the rocks reach up to a depth of 60 cm, with an average distance between 110 and 140 cm. One of the most intricate network
of grooves is located on the site of Misrah Ghar il-Kbir, a prehistoric settlement at Dingli Cliffs. The site was nicknamed "Clapham Junction" by
David Trump, because it reminded him of the same Railway Station in London.
Some of them goes underwater....
The island Malta was already settled probably 8000 years ago of Sicily. Still to 11,000 BC they was combined with the south Italian island.
From the time by 5200 to 4600 BC there are the first lanes of human accomodations through cave finds. From 4600 BC are first dwellings and huts to be
found and from about 3800 BC it began the Stone Age stage at Malta that left up to now impressive evidences which annual thousands of tourists allure.
The megalith temples Mnjadra and Hagar Qim as soon as the Hypogaeum in the city Paola are the main attractions of the island from this time. Ceramic
finds, artistic reliefs and paintings as soon as the famous "sleeping lady" show the amazing artistic work of the inhabitants of this period. From
about 2500 BC this stage would end and the inhabitants left the island.
Here one of the prosaic "scientific" explanation:
The possibly origin of the Cart Ruts with transport mediums like "grinding poles" known us "travoises" (drawing by Walter Hain, 1982).
But,The real great mystery is that same kind of "parallel tracks" we can find in all Mediterranenan Area, not only in Malta...
