The Conference

Honor Frost’s connection to Malta can be traced back to 1967 and the Mellieħa Bay project.  Ms Frost’s subsequent publication ‘The Mortar Wreck in Mellieħa’, can be considered as the beginning of underwater cultural heritage activities in Malta, as well as the beginning of a long association between Ms Frost and the island, where she kept a house and considered it a second home. This connection will be celebrated through a small ‘Honor Frost in Malta’ exhibition at the Malta Maritime Museum, which will include her notes and illustrations from the Mellieħa Bay excavation.
