His thesis is currently strongly supported by Heine-Geldern primarily on pottery similarity between the two culture areas.

To reject these accounts so blatantly is not a view that could be expected to he palatable to archaeologists generally, 27 despite the assumed legendary origin of these writings.

Velikovsky is most convincing, it seems, when he is dredging up old and forgotten enigmas produced by archaeologists trying to reconcile the results of their excavations with conventional history of ancient times as written by modern historians.

... , concentrating on Syria (which was Schaeffer's home ground), for it provides the link between Mesopotamia and Egypt. To establish the historical relationships between destructions, Schaeffer considered the archaeological finds and stratigraphy at numerous sites. He amassed an enormous amount of such data which is why his book continues to be quoted although getting on for 50 years old. For ... , its main excavator, Dunand, never wrote it up properly yet he did record the position of everything on a 3-dimensional grid.
