If one is not specifically interested in the likely explanations of Malta’s cart-ruts, which run along stretches of rough rock floor, and occasionally disappear off the sheer drop, one may take a walk in Malta’s countryside and regard this phenomenon as an open-ended mystification. Conjectures there are several, but the calculated guesses link them to the dragging of heavy loads on stilts, or the transport of boulders on wheels for temple building. These are the more likely suppositions by archaeologists, but they are by no means conclusive. Alternatively, others link them to water conduits. At the end of the day, it is the fascination of the unknown that remains, and the fact of having seen them for yourself during an invigorating scenic walk on a lovely day.
