“There is a niche carved at the back of the Hypogeum oracle room
chamber that seems like a deliberate amplification channel for throwing sound.”

Updated May 6, 2012 / Original April 27, 2012 Sarasota, Florida - At the center of the Mediterranean Sea between Palermo at the tip of Italy and Tunisia in northern Africa is an ancient island complex known as Malta. It's entire land mass is only 122 square miles, making it one of the world's smallest states. About 6,000 years ago, people there built extraordinary megaliths and temples, including the world's oldest known freestanding structure completely underground known as the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum.
