Did the Ancient Egyptians ever reach Malta

Did the Ancient Egyptians of the Old, Middle and New Kingdom ever reach Malta and the Central Mediterranean? - See more at: http://historyofthea...h.GBYSJrHl.dpuf

"However it was not the Egyptian boats which sailed across the ‘Great Green Sea’. Foreign produce reached Egypt via the successful European seafarers – Minoans and Mycenaeans, later known as the Greeks."

And if we have to believe what has been found in the German Bight (Rungholt) and Sweden, then these Minoans even reached the North Sea as far back as 1700 BC.

The megalithic ruins in Malta have always fascinated me. Egyptian influence can definitely be ruled out in this case.

Can you developed that.

Thanks in advance.

Ah, I assumed you already read about it in the OLB thread. I'll try to find the link.

This was about inscriptions in Scandinavia:

Rock panel with carvings (Helleristning) I

Petroglyphs

Near to this cup mark, there is a figure which may represent a boat. With the high, upright stern and prow, equally high as what could be the mast, it looks like a ship rendered on a Mycenean vase from late Minoan time ( Ernst Kjellberg og Gösta Säflund, Græsk og Romersk Kunst, 1962, p. 31). To the left is the Linear A inscription, with the signs tu yu pi ti. The ship figure is pecked into the rock with the same technique as used in the inscription and the cup mark.

...and so on...

And this was about the amber seals:

I know I have posted about it here (even with screenshots of the seals) but at least you know this is where I got it from.

This is the post about he Minoan amber seals found in (the peat of) former Rungholt:

Linear Inscriptions in Germany

German anthropologist and cultural historian Hans Peter Duerr states that the Minoans visited the British Isles, presumably for the tin in Cornwall. From Cornwall, the North Friesian coast, a rich source of amber, is not much farther. Since its inundation in 1362, the “lost city” of Rungholt, on the Friesian island, Sudfall, has been a rich source of archaeological information. Under the bronze-aged peat layer were found pithoi, such as those carried aboard Minoan/Mycenaean ships during the 14th and 13th centuries BCE. Moreover, Duerr, while visiting the Rungholt site in 1994, found in the mud some amber artefacts[1] with Lin A/B inscriptions [2].
