Destroyed Megalithic Sites

Debdieba (an echoing place) was excavated by Dr Thomas Ashby at the suggestion of Sir Themistocles Zammit in 1914. Little sense could be made from the remains which were situated between a road and private owned tilled fields. The finds yielded some pottery that suggest a dating of about 3000-2500 BCE. The uncovered megaliths and the whole site were destroyed in the 1960's in the construction of an extension of the runway of Luqa Airport.
