Robert Temple traces the traditions of the Dogon and three related tribes back 5000 years to the ancienct Mediterranean cultures of Sumer and Egypt. He shows a knowledge dependent on physics and astrophysics, which they claimed was imported to them by alien visitors from the star system Sirius.
Using research in physics and astrophysics, Temple investigates the beliefs of some present-day African tribes that civilisation on Earth is the result of contact from inhabitants of a planet in the system of the star Sirius prior to 3000 BC.
