Caption: Ancient salt pans, Gozo, Malta. Sea water is being pumped into the salt pans, which are formed by the small walls built on the flat rock. The sea water is left to evaporate in the Sun's heat. The salt deposits are collected and used to flavour food. The pans have been in use for at least several thousand years.
