|The Skorba site was systematically excavated by Dr D.H. Trump from 1961 to 1963. At the East end of this site, are the remains of two huts which predate the temples. In the excavation of the northern hut a group of figurines was found, dating from 4,100 BCE (see an example) Before the temples were built, a village lay on the same site. A wall to the west of the main temple entrance produced charcoal, dating to 4850 BCE. The main temple dates to 3600-3000 BCE, and the temple to its side, 3,000-2,500 BCE. The whole site was also used during the first stage of the Maltese Bronze Age 2,500-1,500 BCE.
