Professor Anthony Bonanno and Dr Ruben Borg will give an account of the visit made by them to Lampedusa in July 2016. They will give an account of surface inspection of very faint circular markings on the ground suggestive of possible prehistoric huts, as well as a preliminary assessment of claimed ‘prehistoric sculptures’ collected by the same person. They will also discuss the vulnerability of coastal heritage structures with particular reference to building and structural typologies on the Island.
