The 'star tablet' currently on display in the National Museum of Archaeology is thought to have been part of a circular stone used for astronomical observations. There are several theories as to how it was used.
At the time Tal-Qadi was built, it would have sat on a hill overlooking an ancient shoreline since the sea from Salina Bay came much further inland at that time.
