Dear Lenie,

I received your book and just finished reading. Thank you so much for this fascinating and enlightening lens on the temples of Malta! This is the book I have been looking for. I can’t wait to be there in person in a couple of weeks.

With gratitude,

CONGRATULATIONS, dear Lenie Reedijk, in achieving world wide recognition for your work in discovering this new archaeo-astronomical perspective contained in Sirius, the Star of the Maltese Temples. And well done also on being selected as Author of the Month for February 2019 on Graham Hancock’s website, which has thousands of followers around the world. I am just so delighted that this has happened.

Sirius is a scholarly publication of the highest order and demands to be taken seriously by the world of scientific advancement. Now it has been! It is a wonderful reward for your years of solitary research.

The local archaeological fraternity of Malta have been shown for what they are in hitherto ignoring your amazing new discovery – an introverted self-satisfied group who wish to remain in their comfort zone, unchallenged by new ideas. And there they shall remain. They have missed the opportunity to share in your reflected glory so they shall now be left in their own dark backwater. Now your Sirius research is to be acknowledged by the infinitely more significant world wide community with this invitation to speak at the seventh annual conference on the Origins of Civilisation, to be held in London in November and in the company of other famous speakers in the field of archaeology. There could be no greater vindication for your years of work and dedication.

Well done and congratulations again.

Your presentation of the intellectual history and political bias of archaeology/archaeologists that has plagued Malta is eye-opening and enlightening. I have a PhD (Princeton University 1985) in anthropology and I read Tylor, V Gordon Childe, and Frazer, etc. in the process of my education/indoctrination… I deeply appreciate the re-visioning of that social-darwinist perspective that you present in your book.

Thank you for your revelations. You asked the same questions my husband and I asked when confronted with the amazing temples and peculiar archaeological theories on Malta. Now I have at least some of the answers!

It was wonderful meeting you yesterday.  I am now on page 50 and can’t put it down, what a fascinating book this is.

I have been reading through much of your book, and I must say it is fascinating!  It is very well put together with very strong evidence to support your theory. I am already convinced!

Lenie, I LOVE your book, it is a must read for everyone who wants to understand, if we succeed in having an open mind, our civilization can connect to an incredible source of wisdom. THANK YOU,

Disturbing ? Yes absolutely ! But in a good way … Thank you, Lenie, for sharing your insights with us.

I highly recommend the book for its splendidly interesting and meticulous investigation, which has opened up an exciting new perspective on the archaeology of Malta and Gozo.

It is hard to see why the establishment are so unwilling to engage in discussion. The lack of engagement is perhaps indicative of the authenticity of Lenie’s theories. They don’t have the scientific basis to refute so stay huddled together in their own little comfort zones of denial.

The book arrived today and I was glad to see that the printing is large enough for me to read with ease. It is a very handsome book and I look forward to getting stuck in. It looks as though Stonehenge, which I visited last month, is going to turn out to be the ‘new kid on the block.’ It’s a mere 5000 years old.

By the way, I am very fond of Orion and enjoy looking over to Sirius whenever I’m staring in that direction. We’re coming to the time of year when both can be seen from here in the late evening, wooded hills permitting. The last day I can see Orion’s Belt is St George’s Day. That will be the case until precession changes things but I doubt I’ll be around to see them!

I enjoyed reading Bonello’s Foreword. I don’t usually read forewords but this one is very good and puts the whole of Lenie’s book into context.

The chapter on Ugolini was fascinating. I’d no idea about how Mussolini was regarded in the early thirties, nor indeed until he joined with Hitler in the war. I did hear that he made the trains run on time so he must have been good at something. Interesting that he might have been offered Malta to persuade him to join the Allies. The origin of Fascism – the term – was new to me, as was the use of Italian as the preferred language of the Maltese intelligentsia. That Ugolini was suspected by the pro-British authorities of being a Fascist spy doesn’t surprise me. We are paranoid about Johnny Foreigner’s motives.

The Legacy of the X Club has taught me more about my late fellow-countrymen than I’d really wish to know. Of course I knew we ravaged our colonies for anything valuable, offering in return nothing but coloured beads and conversion to Christianity. And we all know about the Elgin Marbles. But the domineering attitude that ‘we are British so we know best’ was not then much disputed by my generation of middle-class boys, brought up as we were to believe that ‘wogs begin at Calais’. We naturally considered we were the best because we were told so. And we were confidently assured that after all, God is an Englishman…

The book is very interesting, especially for a Maltese person like myself.  After the brief conversation we had at the book fair in Valletta, some weeks ago, I read the book very carefully.  The way you give credit to the persons doing the actual field work through the decades is excellent. Page by page one builds up the ground work for your final conclusion, understanding the hindering factors why this was overlooked, or even hidden.  In his book Malta, Prehistory and Temples D.H.Trump illustrates on pages 200-201 rather chaotically the orientation of the temples, something that let me down when reading it. Applying your reasoning, order is restored to this illustration. Reading your book, finally, gives our ancestors the right place in history. Astronomers building structures to record their observations and findings. Remarkable indeed.

Well, there’s one Maltese who seems proud of his ancestors. Why are his compatriots so shy in expressing similar views? Surely the stuffy old British influence is no longer extant?
