Being in Malta and looking for traces of ancient Romans, we can accidentally reach the Malta Maritime Museum in Birgu (near the capital – Valetta). It is reportedly the largest museum on the island – with over 20,000 objects. The museum shows the maritime history of the island from ancient times to modern times. A small fragment of the exhibition was also dedicated to the Phoenicians and Romans.
However, one must admit that part of the ancient exhibition is extremely poor. Apart from a few sketches of galleries and boats of ancient Carthaginians or Romans, the remains of columns and capitals or, for example, weights for the net, we will see nothing more.
