THE sea story of Malta and Gozo – the natural continuation to Grand Harbour Malta
The sea and coastal areas have always been viewed by humans as places of intrigue, danger, threat and opportunity – they evoke fluid sentiments that develop and even change through time. Islanders, more than any other people, have a special affinity to the sea. This wide open space is at once negative – a barrier that cuts them off from their neighbours; but also positive – providing the medium upon which people can travel to and from the island.
A myriad of traditions, stories and beliefs have evolved around the special relationship that islanders have nurtured with the sea. Over their seven millennia of history, the Maltese Islands and their people have been shaped by the sea and all the allure it brings with it.
In this volume, by the renowned photographer Kurt Arrigo, stunning images and words are intricately woven into a unique narrative that is divided into six thematic chapters. The text is by marine archaeologist Timmy Gambin, Senior Lecturer at the Department of Classics and Archaeology at the University of Malta.
This is THE sea story of Malta and Gozo as has never been seen and told before. Maritime Malta is the natural continuation to Grand Harbour Malta, published in 2011, and is the second in a trilogy of books which are being published by Miranda to celebrate the maritime heritage of the Maltese Islands.
