- project duration
- 01/09/15 – 31/08/16
- The project aims to produce a novel, material culture-led narrative of daily life in Malta, AD 1530-1910. Archaeological analyses of artefacts and space shall be integrated with archival evidence to produce a social interpretation, which shall be viewed through the prisms of colonial institutions and identity formation. The project culminates in a diachronic comparison of colonialism under three ruling groups.
