... cataclysms were reconstructed from historical documents and traditions of ancient races; in Earth in Upheaval the geological and palaeontological evidence was presented to substantiate the same claims, and only some scattered archaeological evidence was adduced. The task of collecting and interpreting the archaeological evidence of a great natural upheaval in the area of the Near East was diligently performed by CLAUDE F. A ... Intermediate Period (between the Old and Middle Kingdoms)- my critics did not omit to stress my divergence from accepted notions. In the 1964 volume of the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology JOHN VAN SETERS published a paper titled "A Date for the 'Admonitions' in the Second Intermediate Period" [2, expressing a view which since then has also received acceptance ...

... be reconciled with the stratigraphical evidence of archaeology." By stratigraphical evidence are usually meant mute artifacts, mostly pottery. The effort in my reconstruction was in shifting the emphasis to archaeological literary evidence. It is from the literary evidence that the artifacts originally obtained their meaning as chronological indicators; but whereas at the base of the "orthodox" approach to historiography ... to the reexamination of my theses, W.

This compared the stratigraphy of numerous Bronze Age sites in the Near East and sought to construct a comparative chronology for them. In doing so, he reached what most archaeologists and ancient historians must have regarded as novel, even startling, conclusions which even today, in spite of a wealth of evidence laboriously gathered and ably marshalled by Schaeffer, do ...
24. The Saturn Problem [SIS C&C Review $]
... first farming settlements, about 8000BC, much of the northern hemisphere was in the grip of the glacial sheets of the last Ice Age. The lack of geological, climatological or archaeological evidence to support the idea of a Golden Age ended by massive catastrophe must explain the almost stubborn reluctance of the Saturnists to tell us when they date the break-up of the Polar ... ¦ Issue Contents The Saturn Problem by Peter J.

26. The Rise of Blood Sacrifice [Aeon Journal $]
... commoners. Sophisticated blood rituals became the most prominent activities of the first permanent lords. The origin of these sacred procedures remained equally enigmatic. Though well documented, the textual and archaeological sources which point to catastrophic preconditions for the emergence of a sacrificial elite, are only rarely taken into consideration by students of religion. This paper tries to show the essential correctness ... powerful than ordinary earthquakes, storms, volcanoes, eclipses, and tidal waves? To answer the question as to the character of a "power not of this world," archaeology proves helpful by coming up with more specific evidence.

... Mycenaean pottery found in this layer. That in turn is based solely on Egyptian chronology. 6 Thus, if the Egyptian scheme is off, both the Greek calculations and the archaeological date must be changed.

Caskey, a participant in the Cincinnati expedition, who does believe that Hissarlik is the site of Troy, states some of this writer ? s reservations very well (? Archaeology and the Trojan War,?

... textbook habit of placing Old Kingdom chronologies as a compact block before the Middle Kingdom, which in turn forms a similar block prior to the New Kingdom, is not compatible with archaeological evidence.
