The islands of Malta have been inhabited since around 5200 BC. The first inhabitants known are from a Neolithic culture and these are witnessed by the many Megalithic structures found around the islands. The Phoenicians colonized the islands on around 1000 BC and brought about the Semitic language and culture. These were followed by the Carthaginians and the Romans at around 216 BC who made Malta a municipium. A period of Byzantine rule followed and then an invasion by the Arabs in AD 870. The Normans came next in 1091 and these were welcomed by the then Christian natives. In 1530 the Malta was given to the Order of the Knights of St John who fortified the island, built the capital city of Valletta and lots of other palaces and castles around Malta, Gozo & Comino. In 1798 Napolean took over Malta for a couple of years before the islands became a British Colony. The islands got their independence in 1964 and became a republic in 1974. In 2004 Malta joined the European Union which brings us to the present days.
