Corinthia Palace Hotel in Malta named Headquarter Hotel for first ever International Conference on Archaeoacoustics: The Arachaeology of Sound

Corinthia Palace Hotel in Malta named Headquarter Hotel for first ever International Conference on Archaeoacoustics: The Arachaeology of Sound ( MALTA - The five-star Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa in Malta was named Headquarter Hotel for the first International Conference on Archaeoacoustics: The Archaeology of Sound, February 19-22, 2014. The groundbreaking multi-disciplinary event is being organized by the Old Temple Study Foundation (OSTF), in association with the University of Malta.

The 2014 Archaeoacoustics International Conference in Malta is expected to draw academics, researchers, musicologists and individuals in different fields from around the world. The event will explore new technology in archaeology for identifying unusual sound behavior of the world's oldest buildings, including Malta’s remarkable megalithic temples, such as the world famous Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Linda Eneix, founder of OTSF, said: “Our goal during this event is to pull together information and experience from a wide range of sources, seeking a thread that identifies the most fundamental application of the human experience of hearing. We are particularly interested in the role that acoustic behavior may have had in the development and design of important architecture and ritual spaces throughout the ancient world. Archaeology often focuses on the visual and on physical objects, although the past was of course not silent.”

“The Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa is proud to host such a prestigious conference and we are looking forward to welcoming delegates to Malta from all parts of the globe. Our location is ideal, across from the Presidential Palace and midway between two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Malta’s capital, Valletta and the silent city of Mdina,” said David Woodward, General Manager. Originally built in the 19th century as a luxury private villa, the Corinthia Palace’s grand design and immaculately-landscaped gardens are an oasis of serenity. It features a health and wellness spa, the Athenaeum; several dining options including the original elegant Villa Corinthia, as well as the Rickshaw, with an Asian-fusion menu. The conference package includes five nights’ accommodation at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa, meals and exclusive excursions.

The sunny islands of Malta, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, are home to a most remarkable concentration of intact built heritage, including the highest density of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in any nation-state anywhere. Malta's patrimony in stone ranges from the oldest free-standing stone architecture in the world, to one of the British Empire's most formidable defensive systems, and includes a rich mix of domestic, religious and military architecture from the ancient, medieval and early modern periods. Some of them have a role to play in future research in Archaeoacoustics. Average February temperatures: high 60F and low 49F.


Based in the United States and Malta, OTSF operates highly successful educational travel programming for North Americans in the Maltese Islands. Its activities have caused enormous economic benefit through tourism. Additionally, this non-profit foundation has contributed over US$300,000 to the archaeology Laboratory of University of Malta, various research projects, and philanthropic conservation and heritage awareness initiatives around the world.
