111. The Case for Catastrophe in Historical Times [Kronos $]
... that some hitherto neglected evidence will suffice to reopen the case for historical catastrophe. A NEW APPROACH There are two kinds of evidence which could create a case for historical catastrophe: archaeological and literary. To judge from the writings of the majority of the world's top men in the field of archaeology, there is no case. It can be objected, however ... that this verdict is negative only by presumption, since most archaeologists have not been aware of the possibility of catastrophes on a global scale when conducting their excavations and in compiling their reports. This objection is significant because there was a notable dissenter among the elite of archaeology in the person of the late Claude Schaeffer, who was best known as the excavator of ... catastrophes in shaping the geological history of Earth, such ideas are being debated and would appear to be gaining acceptance. By way of contrast, the reaction of most scientists and archaeologists to the idea that global catastrophes may have shaped Earth's more recent past- in particular, during historical times- has been one of outright rejection. A few daring souls have ...

... has a longstanding active interest in ancient history, particularly that of America. He has concentrated specifically on the Maya civilisation and has travelled extensively in the Maya region. Apart purely archaeological and anthropological studies of ancient America, he has also investigated possible pre-Columbian contact between the Old and New Worlds and has written papers and articles on this. He recently delivered a ... and have a deeper meaning than merely some form of tilery or pottery 'logo'? Old European Linear In two books [21, 22, Marija Gimbutas, professor of European archaeology at UCLA, presented the results of her research into symbolic artefacts from the earliest Neolithic village sites in Europe (c. 7000-3500BC). The purpose of the first book was ... around 1350AD. Although preliminary excavations, clearing projects and mapping surveys were made by Desire Charnay (1888), Blom& LaFarge (1925), Ekholm (1956-7) and archaeologists from the Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e History de Mexico (INAH) (1960), the first extensive mapping and architectural survey of the site was conducted in 1966 by a ...
113. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... a recent issue of Antiquity (reviewed by GAMMON and JAMES in "Anchors Aweigh", SISR IV:1. pp. 2-3) has met with a cool reception in archaeological circles. Mellaart, in an attempt to reconcile the archaeological dates for the Early and Middle Bronze Ages with the tree-ring-calibrated C14 results, had suggested raising the former by up to ... radiocarbon dates for the Palestinian Early Bronze Age, Mellaart had relied on an article by JOSEPH CALLAWAY and JAMES WEINSTEIN [1. The latter, visiting assistant professor of Near Eastern Archaeology at Cornell University, has published a response in the March 1980 issue of Antiquity (pp. 21-24, "Palestinian radiocarbon dating: a reply to Mellaart") expressing " ... generally accepted chronology of the ancient Near East for the period of the Bronze Age (c. 3000-1200 BC on conventional dating) was erroneous. He had several general criticisms of archaeologists. First, most of them had a "frontier complex" which made them reluctant to look beyond their own, sometimes very narrow, specialist fields. Secondly, while there ...

... end of EB III, should have remained in ruins during the Middle Bronze until rebuilt in the Late Bronze, during the reign of Ahab of Israel. Contrary to this, archaeological evidence indicates a major occupation during the Middle Bronze with very few remains from the Late Bronze. 15 The above prompted Sieff to write that "Cardona should read his Bible more ... criticizing Salibi only "so that he can then pose as [Israel's 'defender'"-- while denying "all its literary sources anyway"-- and that "biblical archaeology" does not need Heinsohn's "defense." 85 There were other unsavory innuendoes but I will let them pass. In fact, Sieff's critique of Heinsohn was so shocking it ... 36. P. Matthiae in H. La Pay, op.cit., 759. 37. W.C. van Hattem, "Once Again: Sodom and Gomorrah."

... end of EB III provided by the sites themselves, and she fails to look for a cause for this climatic change. One plus point for the article is her realisation that archaeological and calibrated radiocarbon dates give conflicting results: acceptance of the calibrated 14 C dates would mean postulating a (non-real) 400-years gap between the end of EB III and the beginning ... too much to ask? Radiocarbon Anomalies source: Nature 29.10.81, p. 700 Robert Hedges reported for Nature an account of the First International Symposium on Carbon-14[ 14 C and Archaeology, held in Groningen 24-28th August 1981. He gave a lucid account of the uses, limitations and drawbacks of the application of 14 C dating. Notably, despite the widespread ... of 14 C dates "... material is often submitted for dating in the spirit of adding a scientific precision to the archaeologists' pre-existing beliefs". Of the materials submitted for dating "charcoal and bone are by far the most common and both are subject to various forms of contamination". Note that word "contamination". It is a ...

... , and mythologists, all at the same symposium. The young, but rapidly developing field of archaeo-astronomy (astro-archaeology) offers an example of genuine interdisciplinary synthesis: certain historical and archaeological data become, at the same time, astronomical data. Indeed, this disciplinary merger seems now to hold out the most immediate and substantial hope for resolution of the vexing questions ... by mythologists Vine Deloria, Jr. and Dr. William Mullen during the session on "Myth and History." Mullen presented a compelling case for the total reassessment of Mesoamerican archaeology and folklore in light of Velikovskian catastrophism, while Deloria defended the arresting thesis that, rather than representing some "transcendent" or verbal reality only, "the ancient sources and ... other than a "normal," local conflagration. When asked whether the ash is organic or volcanic in origin, De Grazia replied: "We don't really know. The archaeologists try to get through it as quickly as possible so as to find the pretty pots." De Grazia's suggestion was that a systematic analysis of ash layers at archaeological sites and ...

... , still less a pharaoh: the purpose of mummification was to prolong the sepulchral life of the deceased. As the tombs built for the nobles are among the main sources of archaeological finds of metals in Egypt, the rare occurrence of iron smelted from ore can be explained to some extent by its deliberate omission in the choice of objects for the funeral chambers ...

Because of these conditions objects of metal were scarce in the hills occupied by the Israelite tribes, and not many of them have been left for archaeologists to find.

On Cyprus, Aegean culture came into contact with the cultures of the Orient, particularly with that of Egypt, and unavoidably embarrassing situations were in store for archaeology.

By the conventional chronology, there was no other king in the era who could conceivably have accomplished such an invasion of Palestine from one end of the territory to the other.

... historians have to rely on Greek and Roman versions of the story of the foundation of Carthage.

The reason for the preference of 814 B. C. from Timaeus is that archaeology has so far found nothing in the region of Carthage it feels free to date earlier than the middle of the eighth century. As an example, German erudition dates all artifacts ... reference to Ugarit in this letter should help us to date it, owing to the fact that we have more records about that city than any other reported on by Abimilki. Archaeologists have noted a strong influence of Cypriot industry and art on Ugarit; in turn, Cyprus, the island of Aphrodite, owed her handicraft riches and beauties to the colonial energy ...
