It's not clear exactly where they came from or how they got there, but the first settlers on Mallorca were cave dwellers who left behind pottery and tools made from animal horns. The Talayotic period followed around 1000 BC: you can still see Talayots (cone-shaped towers) at Capocorp Vell in the south of the island. Phoenician and Greek traders came next and it's possible that the name Balearic comes from ballein, the Greek for sling throwing. These sling-throwers helped the Carthaginians fight the Romans in the 2nd Punic War, but by 123 BC the Romans had control of Mallorca. True to form they built roads and towns, and introduced the island to Christianity. source and more info:Lonely Planet
