The mosaic pavements in the Domvs Romana at Rabat rank among the finest and oldest mosaic compositions from the western Mediterranean, alongside those of Pompeii and Sicily. They were discovered in 1881 just outside Mdina in the remains of a rich and sumptuously decorated town house of the Roman period. The collection on display at the Domvs Romana is meant to project a glimpse of everyday life in the roman domus, spanning from everyday chores like cooking and weaving, to body care and entertainment.
