Fodor's Review

The semifossilized remains of long-extinct species of dwarf elephants and hippopotamuses that roamed the island some 125,000 years ago were found in a cave here. The fossils are now on display in the small museum. The earliest evidence of human occupation on Malta dating from 7,000 years ago was found in the excavated upper layer on the cave floor.
