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 confis-
cated 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.
