Maltese ruins and legends

SO MUCH MALTA! The Weird Findings, Strange Artefacts And Archaeologic Gems Of Malta. And these barely scratch the surface (literally) (Chiara Micallef, Lovin Malta). This is the first I remember hearing the story of the Maltese giantess and her human lover. This appears to be a local legend. I don't know how old it is.

I have just posted on the Maltese shipwreck here, with links, and on the catacombs of Malta here, with links. A past post on the Cippi of Melqart is here. Cross-file under Phoenician Watch.
