Lemuel Monkhouse# 401 

Name Lemuel Monkhouse
Faction Civilian
Race Human
About Doctor Lemuel Monkhouse holds a Bachelor of Science in Xenophilology from Oxford University, a Masters in Xenobiology from Olympus Mons University and a Doctorate in Xenoarchaeology from Oxford University. He received a large grant from Rondell Corporation for an archaeological dig on Palan. Dr Monkhouse is also well-known for his work on Mars, writing a book in which he hypothesises of an ancient, galaxy-spanning "super race".

Grayson Burrows seeks out Monkhouse to try to learn something about the artifact in his possession. Monkhouse has a Steltek artefact very similar to Grayson Burrows' own artifact. He gives it to Burrows on the condition that he can publish any scientific finds on the Steltek. He also programs Burrows computer with the navigational information from the artifacts, as well as the Steltek alphabet.

The Oxford Library database says the following about Monkhouse:

"Dr Lemuel Monkhouse, the Confederation's foremost expert in xenoarchaeology, brings to the field a unique multi-disciplinary approach, grounded in the knowledge of alien biological systems and the conceptual analogues common to all languages. The pinnacle of Monkhouse's career was his discovery of the Mars Steltek Site in 2667, relics from which have been dated at 2.4 billion years of age. This find shook the scientific community and called into question previous estimates of the age of the universe. This was also the first evidence found which supported the "Steltek Hypothesis", the postulation that an advanced, galaxy-spanning civilisation existed before the so-called Dawn of Intelligence. That evidence has been confiscated by the Confederation, and the Mars Steltek Site has been closed since 2668. Despite Monkhouse's unsurpasses reputation, many authorities still dispute his findings. Monkhouse, Chairman of the Jones Memorial Archaeological Foundation, is widely sought for consultation on alien artefacts. Rumour has it that he retains some Steltek artefacts in his possession. Currently, he can be found on Palan, overseeing an excavation at an undisclosed site. Funds for these excavations are provided by the Palan-based Rondell Corporation."
