151. Thera: Chronology at a Crossroads? [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... Late Minoan IA period has thus been dated to 1550-1500 BC, and the eruption of Thera dated to 1500 BC. This dating, it must be stressed, is purely an archaeological one. As its basis we find the dating of Mycenaean pottery in Egyptian New Kingdom contexts, and through the dating of Mycenaean wares the pottery style chronologies of the Late Minoan ... materials, were available at the time, and gave results in the range 1760-1620 BC: see G. A. Weinstein and P. P. Betancourt, American Journal of Archaeology 80 (1976), pp.329-48; also H. N. Michael in Proceedings of the Temple University Aegean Symposium (1976); also Michael in Thera and the Aegean World ... eastern Mediterranean, the Aegean region, and on the island of Crete. Pottery of a type known as Late Minoan IA was found straddling the lava deposits on Thera, and archaeologists have used this pottery as a means for dating the major second millennium BC eruption. The Late Minoan IA period has thus been dated to 1550-1500 BC, and the eruption of ...

153. Calibrated Radiocarbon and the 'Methodological Fault-Line' [SIS C&C Review $]
... this giant enigma. The possibilities are as follow [sic: 1) the calibration curve is wrong, 2) the date ascribed to written history is wrong, 3) archaeological stratification has been grossly misinterpreted, 4) the region was depopulated for a thousand years, or 5) the ceramics in use during this period are not diagnostic. Since none ... for the archaeologists and historians similar problems to those of the pre-historians, albeit on a less grand scale. For example, in 1980, Suzanne Richard, an authority on the archaeology of Palestine, produced a somewhat stretched 400 year chronology for the EB IV period (otherwise known as EB/MB) but was still left with a 100+ year 'dark ... chronology was not applicable to Egypt. Instead, Long approved of the rather better correlation between uncalibrated ages and the historical chronology. The application of calibrated radiocarbon dates created for the archaeologists and historians similar problems to those of the pre-historians, albeit on a less grand scale. For example, in 1980, Suzanne Richard, an authority on the archaeology of Palestine ...
154. The End of MBII [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... the Israelite conquest of Canaan (see Interaction, C&AH, Vol. I, Part 2). This identification is unacceptable for four reasons: (I) the archaeological evidence for identifying the end of MBII with the conquest is insufficient: and these insufficiencies must be explained away, (2) the archaeological evidence for identifying the end of Early ... new people (of the EBIV/MBI period) had a tribal organization as evidenced by their burial practices. This and other evidence has been fully documented in my article "Archaeology and the Conquest of Canaan" in Journal of Christian Reconstruction (Summer 1980), pp. 110-134. Some of the evidence for synchronizing the end of MBII with the conquest ... are to a large extent contemporary will require a lot of evidence to substantiate. My suggestion is that the confusion of these two periods has resulted from the widespread acceptance by field archaeologists of the erroneous "late date" of the Israelite conquest (at the end of the Late Bronze Age or early in the Iron Age). Thus any level that obviously ...

... that the Games of 776 BC were those founded by Pelops or Heracles. The Alphabet: As I understand it, Sweeney is arguing the following: a). from the archaeological evidence it appears that the Greeks adopted the alphabet in the 8th century BC, b). Greek tradition indicates that the alphabet was in use before the Trojan War, c ... us that Palamedes, who fought at Troy, added the letters 'x', 'ph' and 'ch' to the Cadmean alphabet. Yet these new letters cannot, according to archaeology, have been introduced before the latter 8th century BC. Bronze and Iron Ages: 1.

However, in the area designated as the land of the Chaldaeans, archaeologists have discovered a great civilisation, hitherto unknown, which they have named Sumerian. How is this to be explained? 2. In the cities of Lower Mesopotamia, the 'Sumerian ...
157. Centuries of Darkness? - a Challenge to the Conventional Chronology [SIS C&C Review $]
... Thompson argues that the first ten books of the Old Testament are almost certainly fiction, written 500-1500 years after the events they describe, and that there is a complete absence of archaeological and historical evidence for key events recorded in the Bible. He concludes that the Israelite sojourn in Egypt, the Exodus and Conquest of Canaan never took place and adds that: ... ¦ Issue Contents Reviews Centuries of Darkness?- a Challenge to the Conventional Chronology a review by Geoffrey Gammon Centuries of Darkness: a challenge to the conventional chronology of Old World archaeology by Peter James, in collaboration with I.

Most of these anomalies have already been noted by archaeologists working in their own specialized fields and have thus been addressed in isolation. Because of their confidence in the overall chronological framework within which they were working, they have generally failed ...
158. Rohl's Chronology - Implications for Mediterranean? [SIS Internet Digest $]
... dates which were much older. This suggests that there is something very wrong with Akrotiri samples. In principle, it is impossible for a wood sample to appear younger than its archaeological context. So could it be that there is something wrong with the short-lived sampling (see (c) below)? Just so that we keep a perspective on this with ... with the New Chronology but not consistent with either the conventional archaeological date (c. 1550 BC) or the 1628 BC frost signature. The C14 date versus Minoan and Egyptian archaeology. As many Minoan archaeologists have pointed out, the 1628 BC date is far too early for the archaeological context of the eruption. It has been determined for many years now ... events. As I write, no doubt my arguments will have been superseded by new findings/results. All I can do is tell you what I know from talking to archaeologists at the sites and what I hear at conferences.

159. The Continuing Ica Mystery [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Review Vol VI No 4 (1984) Home¦ Issue Contents FOCUS ARCHAEOLOGICAL ANOMALIES The Continuing Ica Mystery Contrary to prevailing opinion, the mystery of the curious engraved stones from Ica in Peru still remains unsolved. The Ica stones, an estimated 50,000 of which are now in the hands of private collectors, have been the subject ... been one of the comets depicted in fearsome dimensions on many of the stones. While a "lost" Ica civilisation would hardly be the first forgotten society to be rediscovered by archaeology- the Sumerians, Hittites and indeed most of the civilisations of Pre-Columbian America being classic examples- the evidence of the stones would shake up a lot more than currently held views ... began to turn up stones with a distinctive, almost bizarre, style of carving. Some collectors took interest, buying them for very small amounts of money- and then two archaeologists, who, suspecting the authenticity of the stones, began exploratory excavations in nearby tombs. They did in fact discover a few examples of similar engraved stones in sealed archaeological deposits ...
160. Forum [SIS C&C Review $]
... problems must be tackled before we will really know how well Velikovsky's scheme compares to that generally accepted. Three areas of difficulty figure prominently: (A) A satisfactory scheme of archaeological synchronisms must be developed for all the Near East and Eastern Mediterranean, resolving the chronological anomalies pointed to by Velikovsky, yet having its own internal consistency and harmony with the written ... Egypt's XIXth to XXVIth Dynasties must be found which will accommodate the evidence of all native inscriptions (including the enormous mass of non-royal genealogical data) as well as the evidence of archaeology and foreign synchronisms. The proponents of the "Glasgow Chronology" have been investigating these problems. We feel that problems (A) and (B) can possibly be dealt ... nit-picking", to shy away from the facts and refuse to modify Velikovsky's work when necessary, would certainly mean that Ages in Chaos is never seriously considered by the majority of archaeologists, since the major objections they raise in (A), (B) and (C) could, in our opinion, never be answered. Thus the question is ...
