On the northern lip of Ta’ Ċenċ, looking across towards Ix-Xewkija, three tombs assumed to be of the Early Bronze Age Tarxien Cemetery phase (c. 2500-1500 BC) can be found, if carefully sought. The first consists of two rows of upright slabs, perhaps once the walls of a gallery grave. Close to them is a more typical dolmen, with a capstone supported on other blocks. The third is similar, built into a more recent field wall 600m to the east. There may once have been a fourth well off to the south east, but this can no longer be found.
