Dark history! Here’s your chance to learn all about our ancestors’ relationship with death
Death has been a topic of contention ever since humans have been capable of communicating with each other.
Over the years, humanity has established widely different relationships with death and the concept of the afterlife – so much so that pretty much every country around the world has practiced its own set of death-related traditions at some point in time.
As part of the ‘Malta Oskura’ series, Heritage Malta’s upcoming webinar will be exploring man’s perception of death on the Maltese islands; from the times of the Phoenicians and Romans up until the period of the Knights.
Following the success of the first two webinars in the series, ‘Malta Oskura: Il-Mewt’ will descend into the darkness of various old burial sites and attempt to answer several age-old questions related to the phenomenon…
…so be prepared to hear all about sacrifice, death’s ties to the ‘supernatural’, and of course, the meaning of death and how this changed over time.
‘Malta Oskura: Il-Mewt’ is set to take place on Tuesday 30th November at 8:30pm. The webinar will commence with a 20-minute documentary feature in Maltese (with English subtitles), followed by a Q&A session. Participating will only set you back €5 – so what are you waiting for?
