... of techniques that needs to be assembled and developed. THE "BURNT CITY" OF TROY In some exciting passages, which have unquestionably been among the most widely read of all archaeological writing, Schliemann describes how, in May of 1873, he uncovered "The treasure of Priam," King of Troy during the war between the Greeks and Trojans. ( ... shows this. So do hundreds of other excavation reports. First of all, an interdisciplinary group of scientist must set standards and criteria for entering upon a testable location. Conventional archaeology has certainly proceeded far along these lines, but new parameters need to be added, taken from geology and meteorology, as for instance, the effects of wind and the strength ... area, employing the best archaeological techniques that the state of the art and the typically modest funding could provide. Apart from their extensive work on the other levels, the Cincinnati archaeologists, under the leadership of Carl Blegen, examined closely the ruins of the Burnt City-Level IIg by their code. The debris over the whole site is deep, yet less deep ...

From: Kronos Vol. VIII No. 3 (Spring 1983) Home¦ Issue Contents Petrofabric Analysis: An Unreliable Archaeological Tool Thomas McCreery [This article should be read in conjunction with McCreery's reply to Bibby in the Forum section that follows.- LMG It is not uncommon for archaeology to borrow the techniques of other disciplines. "Indeed [archaeology ... never have advanced this century in the way it has without interdisciplinary help, because as in geology and other historical sciences, each rare clue to the past needs the fullest exploitation and the most careful evaluation." (1) Thus the employment of the soil scientist, J. S. Bibby, by the archaeologist, E. W. MacKie, ... standard archaeological procedure. The subsequent claims that Bibby's analysis showed the Kintraw stone layer to be man made, (2) have, however, convinced few, if any, of MacKie's peers. This rejection by the archaeological community leads us to ask two pertinent questions concerning the use of a geological device in an archaeological context. Firstly, can petrofabric analysis ...

... Jericho (cf. papers by JOHN BIMSON and GEOFFREY GAMMON in SISR I:3), which have led archaeologists to see "the most flagrant discrepancy between Scriptural statements and archaeological discoveries, throwing a shadow on the historical veracity of the Hebrew Testament". In Dr Velikovsky's view, the ease with which these findings, along with other evidence from Jericho ... elsewhere, can be accommodated in his historical revision, suggests rather that the shadow falls on conventional archaeology. Other items in an "imposing score of confirmations from the field of archaeology" included the evidence of field produce, marine fauna and Egyptian writings for the identification of "God's land", visited by Hatshepsut, as Palestine; the mention of the ... by a number of geologists; and the findings of KENYON at Jericho (cf. papers by JOHN BIMSON and GEOFFREY GAMMON in SISR I:3), which have led archaeologists to see "the most flagrant discrepancy between Scriptural statements and archaeological discoveries, throwing a shadow on the historical veracity of the Hebrew Testament".

... , with its proposal for shortening ancient history by two and a half centuries (reviewed in C&CR XV 1993 pp. 36-7), there were debates in the Cambridge Archaeological Journal and Times Literary Supplement and a flurry of reviews (see C&CR XV 1993, pp. 38-9). In 1995, Peter James (main author of Centuries ... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1999:1 (Jul 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology R.M.

Centuries pp. 155-161). The paper notes the tangles which two Israeli archaeologists recently got themselves into because of these contradictory dating systems. A similar story applies to 'torpedo' storage jars, common in Str. III at Tyre which was dated by the ...
95. Olympia [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... the period of the orientalization of the art of Greece in the seventh century. This scheme was accepted; and today, with only slight variations, it is the credo of archaeological art. According to Dörpfeld in the second millennium two or three different cultures met in Greece. 1 Dörpfeld insisted that the geometric ware ascribed to the first millennium was actually contemporaneous ... But by that time he had already been completely discredited, and his obstinacy made him a target for further attacks by the younger generation of scholars properly trained in the science of archaeology, who are able at a glance to tell the exact age and provenance of a sherd. They have no doubt whatsoever that the Mycenaean Age came to a close ca. ... (Furtwaengler), and was he wrong? Wrong was their common borrowing of dates for the Mycenaean Age from the Egyptologists. In view of the fact that later generations of archaeologists followed Furtwaengler and not Dörpfeld, it is worthwhile to reproduce the assessment of the latter as an archaeologist by one who knew him and his work, herself a great figure in ...

... put it: "That there are five and only five sites located in the Dead Sea area- each located near a flowing spring; that all five date to the same archaeological period- the Early Bronze Age; and that there is no other evidence of occupation in the area until the Roman period over 2000 years later is not without significance." ... fiery disaster. [As at Numeira Spongy charcoal can still be scooped from the surface by hand..

97. On the Orientation of Ancient Temples and Other Anomalies [Aeon Journal $]
... second temple was oriented exactly East-West. He estimated his error of measurement to be about 0.2 degrees, more or less. Meticulous the priesthood might have been, but throughout the archaeological literature we find instance after instance where the temple was built to replace another on the same site, but whose foundation was oriented differently. Wright, (3) who excavated ... to approximately 3 minutes of arc. After many years of field work, Kaufman (2), a member of the physics faculty of Hebrew University in Jerusalem whose hobby was archaeology, finally established the location of the first (Solomon's) and second (Herod 's) temples and calculated the orientation of each. Both temples were built on the same spot ... azimuth by only 5 minutes of arc. Another hypothesis is that earthquakes may have caused the change in azimuth. Although this might be suggested, there is no mention by the archaeologists of breaks in the foundations that would serve to support this theory. Moreover, almost all orientation earthquakes produce up-and-down movement, not rotational. So it is unlikely that earthquakes occurring ...

... 'early' and 'late' elements in Homer (more precisely features which entered the epic during the Bronze Age and during the subsequent Dark Ages respectively) by employing either linguistic or archaeological criteria. For example, the Gorgon-charge on Agamemnon's shield (Iliad 11.36) seems indubitably to have had its origin long after the end of the Bronze Age; and yet we ... migration of barbarians from the Aegean was responsible for the destruction of the Late Bronze civilisations of the eastern Mediterranean c.1200 BC is probably one of the most treasured concepts of Near Eastern archaeology. The linking of this invasion of "Sea Peoples" with the arrival of the Philistines of the Old Testament is a major lynch-pin of the conventional chronology for the transitional phase ... , the location of which is disputed, but agreed to be within the "Aegean world" (2). But this complex of evidence is of importance not only to archaeologists of the Holy Land, interested in illuminating the background of the Old Testament.

... to find help. The scriptural search for the Exodus gets stuck in a plethora of numbers, usually leading back to the fifteenth century. That time period fails for lack of archaeological support and still does not resolve the biblical accounts. There is a solution, however, that supports the inerrancy of Scripture and satisfies accepted archaeology and established history. The search ... the Exodus ends in 1552 B.C.E. Scriptural Proofs The Exodus in 1552 B.C.E. can be determined from Scripture by back-dating from the foundation of Solomon's Temple in 968. The foundation in the fourth year of Solomon's reign can be established by moving back from the earliest historically established dates matched to the biblical record. The founding of Samaria occurred in 880 (Kenyon ... The 1552 Exodus Kenneth F. Doig The search for an historical Exodus has been stuck between the proverbial rock and a hard place. The evidence dug from the rocks has led archaeologists to date the event from the thirteenth century B.C.E. to no Exodus at all. The evidence from Egypt provides almost no support for such dating, and in Canaan it raises ...

Thoroughly grounded in the sciences and a specialist in marine biology, Dr. Fell's interests eventually turned toward human involvement with the sea and the wealth of archaeological evidence that, long before Columbus, other seafarers had already visited the Western Hemisphere.
