Researchers from various academic and professional backgrounds are working together to better understand submerged prehistoric landscapes and their significance through a four-year EU-funded research network project entitled Submerged Prehistoric Archaeology and Landscapes of the Continental Shelf.
Eight project partners from six EU countries recently travelled to Malta to join representatives from the University’s Department of Classics and Archaeology to dive to some unique submerged geological features.
The project also seeks to provide training opportunities for young researchers
When I first saw Gobekli Tepe I was amazed not because of it's purported age but to my eyes it reminded me of another ancient site. A quick comparison of the two.
MALTA: Mnajdra Temple
Now, I'm not saying there are any direct connections between the two however one has to admit it does raise some rather interesting questions about it's age. On the island of Malta we find many rather interesting structures. Here again we find a paradox. Some of the sites on Malta show several types of construction. For example, On the one hand we find very large huge rough cut megalithic stones similar to the ones we find all over Europe next to what appears to be well thought out cut blocks and slabs stones similar to Dolmens found elsewhere.
i dont see any problem with stating there was megalithic builders 50,000, 100,000 years ago i dont see why people are afraid of these possibilities
The gauge of the paired ruts averages about 1.4 m (~4.5 ft) apart. At Naxxar, the gauge varies between 130-152 cm; at Buskett-Dingli, measures range from 137-160 cm. At Msirah Ghar il-Kbir (a.k.a. Clapham Junction), the rut clusters range between 137-141 cm.

Are these ruts evidence of a much older culture/civilization using the Islands as a source for megalithic stones for construction and these now submerged tracks prove that the area in question where the tracks run under water was once dry land [Pre-Ice age melt off] which could potentially put them at around 10,000 +/- B.C. that were then flooded in Prehistory when the Ice Age Melt off occurred?
is where it begins to not make sense.
was once dry land
