From: SIS Review Vol 1 No 3 (Summer 1976) Home¦ Issue Contents How well do the findings of archaeologists working in the field reconcile with Velikovsky's revised chronology for the ancient Middle East?

... barbaric lands of savage tribes living in a state of ignorance, to whom enlightenment spread from the East. The writer in 1971 [8 pointed out to a shocked and incredulous archaeological world that the Fertile Crescent contained neither tin, nor copper and that the Bronze Age had to originate outside of it. Further it contained neither silver, nor many of the ... In my study of ancient technology I found similar gaps with, for example, tin bronzes in Mesopotamia a thousand years before they reached next door Syria. Since the beginnings of archaeology some two hundred years ago, the dating of the sites and the objects found in them has presented a problem. The problem is still with us. A mere forty years ... writer's opinion the identification of the Minoans by Sir Arthur Evans as a separate people from the Mycenaeans has been most unfortunate for Middle Eastern archaeology. The third source of chronology for archaeologists was the Bible, in particular the Old Testament. Near Eastern Archaeology received its great inspiration from this collection of folk tales, legends and half forgotten happenings. In recent years ...

... impossible for his LB I A (the very early part of the Late Bronze Age I) to be the time of the Judges. Because of the meager representation of the archaeological remains in the Holy Land it is impossible that this represents the entire period of judges.

... important goal of cosmography is that of the reconstruction of past environmental events and processes not presently known, or at least poorly known to science as determined from patterns elicited from the archaeological, documentary, oral historical, and palaeoenvironmental record.

... Egypt, so that if Velikovsky is correct and the Egyptian dates are centuries too old, then so are the dates of the pottery and the conflagrations. A great deal of archaeological evidence can be amassed for the burning of both Pylos and Troy to support dates centuries younger than those furnished by Egypt. Elsewhere I hope to treat both sites in detail, ... and Gordion: The author is engaged in studies of the ancient Eastern Mediterranean and Near East. He has performed research for Velikovsky on topics suggested by the latter, including the archaeology of Pylos and Gordion and the C14 tests on samples from the two sites. We are constantly assured that the chronology of Egypt from the time of the 18th Dynasty on is ... of the star Sothis during different reigns, the latter giving the precision of mathematics and science to the scheme. Since Egypt's dates are regarded as sound they are seized upon by archaeologists dealing with cultures in contact with Egypt which were either non-literate or whose writing is non-historical or still undeciphered. The absolute dates attached to finds in Greece for the Late Bronze ( ...

... Glaswerke/Mainz am Rhein). The information available now on early Mesopotamian glass, while considerably greater than before, is still incomplete and full of gaps. The philological and archaeological evidence are both related but do no show a parallel development, nor do they share the same history. The glass objects do not 'illustrate' the history of this particular class ... : Where remains of this dynasty could be located stratigraphically-- as in Memphis (by the University of Pennsylvania museum expedition )-they were found right underneath Ptolemaic layers. Thus, archaeology indicates a fourth century date for Neshkons' magnificent glass where Egyptologists want a tenth century B.C.E. date. The finest pieces come from Akhenaton's (-1363 to -1347) capital Akhetaton where ... century B.C.E. and that of 7th century B.C.E. products. The same holds for the production process.

... the latest volume in the series evaluates Velikovsky's proposals for the identification of the XIXth Dynasty of Egypt with the XXVIth Dynasty of Manetho and other writers, in the light of the archaeological and epigraphical evidence now available and the interpretation Velikovsky gives it. His conclusion is that this later part of Velikovsky's "re-write" of history faces considerably more problems- some apparently ... the traditional sequence of later dynasties into a scheme which essentially devolves from Velikovsky's revised placement of the XVIIIth Dynasty.

In those chapters dealing mainly with archaeological questions Velikovsky continues to expose serious weaknesses in the conventional scheme of chronology. Open-minded archaeologists should find the anomalies marshalled by Velikovsky a disturbing problem, and it is hoped that not a few will be stimulated into considering alternatives to the presently accepted chronologies of Anatolia and ...

... dynasty out of its conventional position following the Amarna period, as he proposed.

To these objections the writer would ... noting the enormous building program of the late twelfth-dynasty pharaohs in the delta region, and these constructions were in brick as indicated in Scripture. In the meantime, further correlations between archaeology and biblical history have been reported[3 to confirm the general correctness of his thesis.
