Tarxien Temples | Tarxien, Malta | 13 August 2014

This feature seems to have constituted a focal point in the South Temple. The lower half of the original was carved out of a single block of stone. The plugged cavity hewn within its decorated surface, served as a cubbyhole in which a number of Flint knives and burnt animal bones were found. The upper half of the alter was constructed with smaller slabs, creating a small space which contained burnt animal remains.
