A lifetime of Archaeological research It was in Malta, where I had spent 5 wonderful years at the end of my military career working with the archaeological Dept. of Cambridge University on the excavation of Malta's remarkable Catacombs with Dr. David Trump and the wonderful Fr. Victor Camilleri who has remained a friend these 50 odd years.Both have now passed. During those 5 years I was privileged to photograph and record all the archaeological sites on the islands of Malta and Gozo, including the amazing G’gantija (3,600 – 3,000 B.C.), the earliest freestanding stone monument built by man. It pre dates the pyramids of Egypt and are older than England’s Stonehenge. I have spent considerable time at Stonehenge in the 50’s and again in 1988. My work for the then Maltese Government Information Department from 1955 – 1960 also included recording all the treasures left by the Knights and displayed in the museums and Churches on the Islands. During my two-year return visit to the Island to write my book “Malta – Mediterranean Jewel”. I filmed a pilot program at “Ghar Dalam” the cave of Darkness, for my World of Unexplained Mysteries (Malta) television series. My work on the remarkable “Shroud of Turin” Mystery resulted in the re mastering of my interviews with the Sturp group, researching the results of their investigative study conducted in 70's into the authenticity of this amazing artifact. (http://shroud.com) I was also able to record details of the “Shroud of Malta”. In my 80 odd years I have had the opportunity to work and visit archaeological sites in China, Cyprus, Australia, Central and South America, Ireland, Great Briton, Spain, Japan, Taiwan, and Cambodia, to name but a few. During the 80’s, an Exhibition of my replica artifacts from the Louvre Museum toured Australia and was also used as the basis of my presentation of the Howard Carter Story to Australian High School Students. I am the author of 10 books; my newest book "The Maltese Shroud" available on Kindle and Amazon is a Historic Fiction surrounding the world's greatest unexplained mystery, the "Sacred Shroud of Turin"
