... and has been supported by others since, most recently by Abdel-Aziz Saleh [88. However, to my knowledge, scholars adopting this identification have not discussed it in relation to archaeological evidence for Arab migrations into Africa. It is this evidence which suggests a lowering of dates for the XVIIIth Dynasty. Arab migrations into Ethiopia are an archaeologically well-attested fact. The ... of Sheba: A Critique of Velikovsky's Identification and an Alternative View John J. Bimson Dr John Bimson is lecturer in Old Testament Studies at Trinity College, Bristol, and biblical archaeology consultant to the Review. He is the author of Redating the Exodus and Conquest (JSOT, Sheffield Uni., 1978), and was a Research Associate at Tyndale House ... present discussion is the approximate date assigned to the start of this Arab migration. Although the full flowering of Arabian culture in Ethiopia does not begin until the 8th century BC, archaeologists estimate that the initial settlements probably occurred some two centuries earlier. "... At the beginning of the first millennium BC... there began several centuries of influx ...
32. The Homeric Question [SIS C&C Review $]
... Modern studies on the Homeric Question simply approached the problem with a compromise formula: they rejected both the high and the low chronology. Despite the lack of any authentic historical or archaeological evidence, most historians agreed to use the convenient dates Herodotus and Thucydides had postulated for Homer (i.e. the 9th/8th century BC). For this assertion the dominant ... single researcher, the amount of relevant literature published in the last four centuries on this issue is too much to digest. The number of essays, studies and books on the archaeology of the Homeric Age is also excessive. I do not intend to provide an answer to the unsolvable question of whether there was ever a poet by the name of Homer and ... Odyssey, Oxford, 1955; D. L. Page: 'Homer and the Trojan War', Journal of Hellenic Studies 84 (1964), 17f. 2.

Other recent authors, like Snodgrass (1971, pp. 130-131, 192-194, 275-279, 394-401, 408-409, 422; Archaeology and the Rise of the Greek State [Cambridge, 1977, pp. 25-32), Coldstream ([ 1976, pp. 8-17; Knossos: The Sanctuary of Demeter [ ... s excavator, assigned it to the fifteenth century B.C. The tomb type is foreign to Greece, with the example from Circle B constituting its sole appearance in the country. Archaeologists have discovered the type at roughly the same period on Crete (also one example) and Cyprus and especially in Syria, where it originally developed. Mylonas saw ? striking parallels ...

... Since then all the rivers in China have flowed eastwards. Kondratov inquired of geologist Yuri Reshetov concerning this myth and received the following in reply: Geological, geophysical, paleontological, archaeological and anthropological studies have shown that up until at least the middle of the last Ice Age the Japanese Islands and Indonesia were Asian peninsulas. During the second half of the Ice ... B. C., discovered along a large section of their country's Black Sea. Irish Celts were in America in this period, according to several recent studies of history, archaeology and linguistics; they were perhaps driven to explore and immigrate by a further sinking of their homeland coasts. The age of the comet-god Athena-Venus preceded these episodes of the age of ... conventionally dated at seventy million years; it comes from submerged pine forests that are assigned that date. Recently geologists have begun to stress the youngness of the area, prodded by archaeologists. Drowned settlements have been found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea, the North Sea, and off the British Isles. These are not to be confused with the sunken ...

... his Assyrian subjects (letter no. 9). Our identifying Shalmaneser III as Burraburiash of the letters and as a contemporary and correspondent of Akhnaton(20) could receive direct archaeological verification.

The report carried news of the finds of the British School of Archaeology's Nimrud Expedition: When archaeologists dug into the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud in Iraq earlier this year, they were surprised to find not Assyrian but "Egyptian" carvings.... The explanation given ... understand why so much ivory work reflecting Egyptian styles of over five hundred years earlier should fill, of all places, the military headquarters of Shalmaneser III. Mallowan and his representative archaeologist on the site, David Oates, could not come up with anything better than the theory that, in the military headquarters of Shalmaneser, a factory for manufacturing fake antiques had ...

... off the hook because that could then be combined with the storm stela of Ahmose as description of the effects of the Thera eruption. The Late Minoan 1A, which is the archaeological period in which the eruption occurred, would fit reasonably happily at 1540 but it certainly wouldn't fit very happily with 1650 BC or whatever. That is the latest article which may ... Canaan to the period of the Judges. Disputes were decided by single combat. If we push the Greek Age of Heroes back to 900 BC it makes no sense. The archaeology etc. points to the 8th-7th centuries BC. Bob Porter asked about the Greek list and genealogy for Sparta. Benny said it was created in the 4th century- 'all sons ... Roth commented that he overlaps Bronze Age and Iron Age. Benny said archaeologically there are Bronze Age strata in Israel and Iron Age strata with the Philistines. Bob said what the archaeologists call 'the Philistines' is the arrival of a new pottery at the time of the Sea Peoples. Ramesses III referred to them as Peleset. There may have been Philistines in ...

38. Rejoinder to Velikovsky [Pensee]
... themselves. There was no general Early Bronze Age covering the same period of time throughout the world or even throughout the Mediterranean area.) Absolute dates may be supplied to the archaeological periods worked out in this way through written records found in some of the strata, through carbon-14 dating, or through evidence linking various strata with the remains of some other society ... . However, his reply contained so many misunderstandings and misstatements that I feel constrained to make the following comments. First of all, Velikovsky seems to misunderstand the methodology of modern archaeology, at least in regard to the nature of stratigraphical evidence. In the first paragraph of his reply he quotes my statement that his historical reconstruction "cannot be reconciled with the ... the eighth-seventh centuries rather than the fourteenth, the absolute dates for archaeological deposits in Palestine are all wrong. But that would not change the fact that in Palestine the material which archaeologists have classified as Late Bronze Age preceded the material designated as Iron Age. What I attempted to point out in my article was that in Palestine material of the Egyptian Empire ( ...

... and between the two levels lies a 1.2 meter layer of sterile sand, rose-tinted at its inferior margin. In this context we can only regret that, in conjunction with the archaeological work at Damajayabo, studies of the evident cataclysmic geology of the location were not conducted. However, it was under circumstances quite foreign to science which made such studies impossible. ... of the Caribbean left no vast monumental ritual and urban centers, nor did they possess any system of inscriptions such as the Mayan glyphs that still tantalize scholars, ranging from classical archaeology to computational cryptology.

... 500- 600 years. In each instance the archaeologists responsible for the work tried to resolve the unresolvable chronological contradiction by one or another of very many ingenious suppositions; but the archaeological readers of their printed reports --or the next set of diggers --usually accused those originally in the field of incompetence or negligence, creating "personal archaeological tragedies." In the present ... Winter 1974-75) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered X" Home¦ Issue Contents A Concluding Retort Immanuel Velikovsky Dr. Stiebing (Pensee, Fall, 1973) raised the evidence of stratigraphic archaeology as an argument against my reconstruction of ancient history.
