About MHA




The Maltese Historical Association has now been going strong for more than twenty-five years. It was founded in 1987 following a meeting attended by a number of local enthusiasts, some of whom remain active members of the Association.

Its objectives are to promote interest in the study of all aspects of the history – social, cultural, economic, political and religious – of Malta and the Maltese people, and to encourage and support research in Maltese history.
