11. ISIS: The Amarna Heresy Conference [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:1 (Jun 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents ISIS: The Amarna Heresy Conference www.nunki.net/isis/summerconference.htm ISIS and Sussex Egyptology Society present A Weekend Conference at the University of Reading, 3rd to 5th August 2001. The Amarna age is regarded by many as the most fascinating era in 3000 years of pharaonic history. Although it spanned just 59 years, the Amarna period, beginning late in the reign of Amenhotep III and ending with the coronation of Haremheb, gave rise to a series of remarkable reigns which literally changed the ancient world. This conference sets out to tell the amazing story of the Amarna pharaohs but also to present the latest research in the field and delve into many of the controversial theories surrounding Akhenaten and the royal family of the late 18th dynasty. Friday: Welcoming address by ISIS Chairman Anthony van der Elst; David Rohl: The Amarna Age- An Introduction; Dinner. Saturday: John Davis: Akhenaten- Heretic or Visionary? Aidan Dodson: The Amarna Co-regency controversy; Geoffrey Martin: The ...
12. The Amarna Age - an Introduction [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:2 (Sep 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents The Amarna Age- an Introduction David Rohl Summary David's introductory talk was intended to raise questions which would be tackled in different ways by different people over the weekend. He emphasised several times that in most cases there was no final answer possible at this stage, and that people's opinions were necessarily arrived at by a personal weighing of the evidence. He therefore encouraged debate and discussion rather than passive acceptance of the material to be presented. He was keen to view the period- and indeed much of history- in terms of the personalities involved, which for this period are especially vividly portrayed... though with great ambiguities at times. Content The talk led through the 18th dynasty in approximate time sequence, highlighting points of interest. The dynasty began with Ahmose driving the Hyksos from Avaris and the Delta region. To protect Egypt's northern border against a recurrence of the invasion, early rulers of the dynasty established a loose hegemony of buffer vassal states through the Levant towards ...

14. The el-Amarna Letters [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:2 (Sep 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents The el-Amarna Letters Peter van der Veen The purpose of this talk was to review the situation in Palestine during the Amarna period, as revealed by the tablet archive located at Akhetaten. The New Chronology claim is that this corresponds to the United Monarchy period, which in Biblical terms is described predominantly in the books of Samuel. If the correspondence can be established, this would have major consequences for Biblical and other ancient studies. Some of the material was familiar to readers of JACF or David Rohl's book A Test of Time, but it was succinctly presented with new content scattered through the presentation. What happened in Palestine while Akhenaten was ruling? This is primarily revealed to us (on the Egyptian side) by the tablet correspondence found at Tell el-Amarna, which gives good insight into the social and political condition of this area. On the Biblical side, the two books of Samuel give considerable amounts of equivalent information for the time of Samuel, Saul and David. The ...
15. Oedipus and Akhnaton [Pensee]
... only mature way of viewing history. This is so not merely because the human mind works much the same with all races, in all times and everywhere, but because man the wanderer has welded the world into one ecumene since the Stone Age. In Neolithic times, men were in touch with their kind across the greatest distances of land and water. No one should look askance at Velikovsky's bridging the gap between the hundred-gated Thebes of Egypt and the seven-gated Thebes in Boeotia during one of the most international periods of history (the Amarna Age), when the Aegean and Egypt were in close touch with each other. At that time Egyptian wares appear in Greece, and Mycenean wares in Egypt --as we know from archeological discoveries. To round out the record, we have rich written documentation from Egypt (including the international correspondence from Amarna) and from Greece where the recently deciphered Linear A and B tablets supplement Homer's reference to Oedipus and the later dramatic forms of the story in Aeschylus and Sophocles. As Velikovsky points out, the wonder is that Freud, ...
16. Date of Amarna Letters from Tyre and a Possible Date for Carthage [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History II:1 (Aug 1979) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION Date of Amarna Letters from Tyre and a Possible Date for Carthage Lester J. Mitcham Some time ago I had occasion to query with Dr. Donovan Courville his method of calculating 824 B.C.as the date for the founding of Carthage based on Tyrian chronology. The main problem is that the individual reigns for the Kings of Tyre as yielded by Josephus do not equal the stated total of one hundred and forty-three years from the twelfth year of Hiram to the seventh of Pygmalion. Courville's reply to this query was simple – "It is the total which is correct." I therefore refer the reader to: (1) The Exodus Problem and its Ramifications by Courville, with particular reference to pages 320-21 of the second volume, and to (2) articles by Feldman in Part I of Volume II of Kronos and James in Part I of Volume IV of Kronos, and most importantly to (3) The Tell El-Amarna Tablets, edited by Mercer. Courville quotes ...
17. Rejoinder to Velikovsky [Pensee]
... indicates that it was earlier than the time of the Assyrian Empire and the Palestinian Iron Age with which Velikovsky attempted to synchronize it." Literary evidence is extremely important in archaeological dating, but it should not be used in the way Velikovsky proposes. It is not acceptable methodology to simply compare literary accounts and if they seem similar, to declare them contemporaneous regardless of their archaeological contexts. This is what Velikovsky does, for example, when on the basis of supposed similarities in the names and events recounted in biblical texts and the Amarna letters he asserts that the Amarna texts belong to the same era as the Hebrew Divided Monarchy. As I tried to show in my article, the archaeological contexts of the Israelite Monarchy and the Amarna Period in Egypt will not allow any such synchronization. If archaeological chronology has been based on texts which it turns out were dated incorrectly, then the absolute dates for the stratigraphical sequence of a country may be affected, but the validity of the sequence itself will not be. Thus, if the Amarna letters really belong to the ...
18. I Samuel and the Habiru Problem [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... the Habiru Problem by Peter van der Veen (Leuven, 1989) Peter van der Veen's Thesis, submitted to the Evangelical Theological Faculty of Louvain in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Licentiate in Theology, is subtitled 'An Investigation on the Literary Usage of Habiru and Ibrim in the El-Amarna Letters and in I Samuel'. In terms of the conventional chronology, the el-Amarna Letters and the events of I Samuel are separated by some 300 years: therefore one might not expect to find that the terms Habiru (in the Amarna Letters) and Ibrim (in I Samuel) refer to similar groups of peoples. Indeed, the term Habiru disappeared from use some 150 years before the events of I Samuel, according to the conventional chronology. As SIS members will be aware, van der Veen is a keen supporter of the New Chronology, and has provided much evidence in its support. It is therefore no surprise to find his Introduction questioning the conventional chronology, for he expects to find that there is similarity between the Habiru of the Amarna Letters and ...
19. Dating the Amarna Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1989 No 1 (May 1989) Home¦ Issue Contents FORUM Dating the Amarna Letters Derek Shelley-Pearce comments: 'The El Amarna Letters and the New Chronology' by David Rohl and Bernard Newgrosh (C& C Review X [1988, pp. 23-42) is an extremely readable and well presented article. The work is inspired by its authors' belief that Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos dating is wrong by about 200 years and that his equation of Shishak and Thutmose III together with his el-Amarna identifications are also incorrect by reason of the same erroneous chronological yardstick. Rohl and Newgrosh prefer to move the 18th Dynasty some 200 years earlier in time, i.e., nearer the conventional dating, and to equate Shishak with Ramesses II. It is interesting that Gunnar Heinsohn's Mesopotamian Reconstruction which is favoured by this writer as being the most valid post-Velikovsky revision and most typical of the latter's own work, involves the contention that Rohl and Newgrosh have moved 200 years in the wrong direction! Heinsohn favours a 7th century Amarna date. Perhaps the ...
20. The Body in Tomb KV55 [SIS Internet Digest $]
... the left was found one panel of a golden shrine, with the still-visible picture of a woman beside the mostly-erased image of a man. Other panels of this shrine were scattered round the chamber, with one part near the entrance suggesting it had been used as a sledge to drag items to the surface. To the right of centre was a coffin, assumed by the finders (partly because of their preconceptions, perhaps) to be that of Tiye. The coffin was fairly short, of standard pattern but decorated in the distinctive Amarna style. The fit between head and body was poor, and it has been suggested that it was originally a good fit but was subsequently sawn off before being reattached. The face panel had been violently ripped off in what could be interpreted as an act of ritual desecration or murder of the person's spirit. The cartouche identifying the occupant had been erased neatly. This suggests an officially-sanctioned activity rather than destruction by tomb-robbers. The Canopic jars in the niche were of beautiful design, but text from the front had been carefully erased ...
