Grima will present a paper “Corsairs Parading Crosses’’, Dr Joan Abela will present another entitled “The corsair economy in the initial years of the Hospitaller rule (1530-1565)”, and Mr Liam Gauci will reveal details regarding a previously unknown document through an accompanying paper entitled “The Sultan’s hunt for Captain Guglielmo Lorenzi’’.
