Little survives at the Santa Verna site. Excavated in 1908 by T.E. Peet, and in 1911 by T. Ashby and R.N. Bradley, (see excavation photographs) a trefoil plan of a temple floor, was uncovered. A surprising discovery was the finding of two complete skeletons and portions of others including that of a child. The Santa Verna site is interesting in that it had been used during the whole of the Maltese prehistoric period, starting from 5000 BCE.

Pronunciation: santa ver-na
