101. Sennacherib: the Year - 701 [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... marching troops: ? With the dust of their feet they covered the wide heavens like a mighty storm with masses of dense clouds,? and he boasted: ? The tents of the steppe... I turned into a mass of flames... I swept like a hurricane. I besieged, I captured, I destroyed, I devastated, I burned with fire.? After two campaigns against his enemies in the north, and still early in his reign, Sennacherib led his forces toward Syria and Palestine. The Assyrian army swept along the coast. It attacked Sidon and Luli, its king, fled into the sea and perished. Sennacherib appointed a new king and received tribute from him. Arvad and Ashdod, Ammon and Edom, brought him gifts and ? kissed [his feet.? Sennacherib encircled Beth-Dagon, Jaffa, and Bne-Brak and conquered them. ? The people of Ekron became afraid and called upon the Egyptian king, the bowmen, chariots and horses of the king of Melukha [Ethiopia, a boundless host, and these came ...
102. The Reign of King Hezekiah [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... sick Hezekiah of a fifteen year period of grace intends to convey to the reader of the Scriptures that such grace came really into fulfillment. But that would mean that Hezekiah was permitted to live another fifteen years, and to stay altogether twenty-nine on the throne, or reach his fifty-fourth year he mounted the throne at twenty-five. Everything just told seems in good agreement but for several things. First, three separate texts in the Scriptures, and so also Herodotus in his history of Egypt, tell of an unusual debacle suffered by the Assyrian army under Sennacherib. He won the battle of Eltekeh, close to Jaffa on the Mediterranean coast, against Sethos and Ethiopian generals, and properly recorded it; he continued warfare and carried it east into Elam, southeast into Babylon, west into Anatolia, north into the Caucasus, and beyond. The realization that Sennacherib came again to Palestine on his ninth campaign was intially made by Rawlinson in 18~~, and with years gained an almost universal acceptance. It means that the Scriptural records in its versions of II Kings ...
103. The Chronology of the Late Kings of Egypt [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... But there seemed no escape from the acceptance of this identification in terms of the conventional chronology. The Fallacy in the Shishak-Sheshonk I Equation Whether or not Velikovsky recognized the fallacies in this identification of Shishak, his challenge of the identification was well-founded. The weaknesses in this proposal were noted long ago. Several objections could be raised. One was the incredibility that Assyria could provide kings on the throne of Egypt at a time when she was internally and exceptionally weak. 6 This objection was countered with the proposal that dynasty XXII was not Assyrian in origin but rather of Libyan origin. However, this proposal was as weakly supported as was the Assyrian origin itself. The name Sheshonk and the other names of kings of the dynasty are just as truly Assyrian now as they were when this proposal was introduced. 7 The proposal of a Libyan origin rests its total weight on the appearance of a name in a genealogy, six generations prior to Sheshonk I, a name which questionably might be considered as of Libyan origin. 8 Even if this could be proved to be ...
104. No title [Aeon Journal $]
... cut example of any Palestinian city being systematically destroyed and burnt during Sennacherib's third campaign. Indeed, every other type of destruction and siege technique is carefully spelled out but no systematic burning of captured cities. (6) This is especially significant in that almost all of Sennacherib's campaigns end or are involved in some sort of systematic destruction and burning. The exception may well have to do with the giving over of these cities to other loyal kings in the area, as noted above. One possible problem with this interpretation may be the Assyrian helmet found in the ruins of the Level III gateway. (7) If this find is in situ then it may point to Assyrian soldiers in the Babylonian army of 587/586 BC. Certainly Assyrians did not disappear from the face of the earth because their empire disintegrated between 612-608 BC. Assyrian populations continued to live and thrive in Harran and Arbel well into the Babylonian era and are mentioned even in the time of Darius, king of Persia. In a recent book on the archaeology of the Bible, it is ...
105. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... mu, psi, etc) is a Greek version of Egyptian Ramesses plus S3 Nt (= son of Neith) which was a Late Period royal title (ref. A. Lloyd, Herodotus Book II Commentary 99-182, Leiden, 1988 p. 52). Lasken's question concerning Tony Rees' breaking of the link between Assuruballit and the Amarna Period is justified. I do not know what Tony had in mind but I note that Peter James in Centuries of Darkness (p. 340) strongly hints that the Assuruballit of the Assyrian King List and the Assyrian royal inscriptions is not the Assuruballit of the Amarna Letters. Breaking this link, unreasonable though it seems without further evidence, may largely solve the problem of shortening Assyrian history. I note with dismay that SIS continues to play with lame-duck chronologies while Centuries of Darkness is now available in three editions and is the talk of the academic world. R. M.

106. Peoples of the Sea: An Art Historical Perspective... [Kronos $]
... "(2) Yet, Naville's explanation openly ignores the presence of Greek letters on other tile samples from Tell el-Yehudiyah (see Peoples, plates 2-3). Furthermore, Griffith, Naville's equally eminent colleague, considered all of the enamelled decorative devices of Ramses' chamber to be of the same period-- Ramesside. "That they are natural representatives of Ramesside work is shown... by the enamelled cartouches of Seti II from Khata'neh and elsewhere. A few very similar enamelled tiles from Nimrud [once the capital of the Assyrian empire are of the ninth century B.C., and it is not unlikely that this was an Asiatic art introduced by the conquerors of the New Kingdom. But are they imitations made for a Ptolemaic restoration? This seems to me very improbable, even when the king to be thus honoured was Rhampsinitus [Ramses III himself. ,( 3) Thus wrote Griffith. According to the revised chronology, however, Seti II should be placed in the seventh century B.C. and Ramses III in the fourth century B.C. The artistic ...

108. The Albrecht/Glueck-Aharoni/Rothenberg Confrontation [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... background is that of dynasties XIX and XX. Similarly, the background of Assyria in the 14th-11th centuries is totally different from that in the 9th-6th centuries. Assyria is at its nadir in the pre-Solomonic era, while it is at its acme in the post-Solomonic period. Since the beginning and ending dates for the use of the pottery in question are indistinct, some degree of latitude remains, though certainly not to the extent of harmonizing the two views. It is not without interest that Glueck defended his analysis in part in terms of Assyrian evidence, while Aharoni was correlating his finds with Egyptian history. There has been a growing suspicion among some scholars that the chronologies of Egypt and Assyria for this era have not been correctly correlated with each other. Hence it is not impertinent to raise the question; could this be the ultimate reason these debates continued so long without a decisive conclusion? The debate was eventually considered closed in favor of Aharoni by Rothenberg's finds at the site of Timna, the details of which will be considered in a later section. But if ...
109. Palestinian Archaeology and a Ramesses VI-Shishak Identification [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... during the late ninth and early eighth centuries B.C." (p. 129), which actually (p. 126f.) extends in almost every area to c. 750, i.e. almost the end of the reign of Jeroboam II. So some down-dating at Megiddo already seems indicated: presumably the foundation of IVA should go down to Jehoash at the very earliest. Furthermore, the yardstick at Samaria seems itself in need of recalibration downwards. For the later strata this is indicated by the presence of the relatively recent down-dated Assyrian Palace Ware and by the necessity to account for Sargon II's reconstruction here (Bimson 1982:21f.). For the earlier strata this is indicated by historical plausibility, as well as by a consideration of the origin of the accepted dates. One historical difficulty for the accepted chronology is quite apparent from Wightman's assertion (1985:125) that the Samaria "Pottery Period II is associated with structures (e.g. the northern casemates specifically, to which may be added the southern casemates and towers) which can be shown to ...
110. A Criticism of the Revised Chronology [Pensee]
... the destruction of Ugarit, the Mycenaean Period and the Trojan War are all viewed as coeval with the Hebrew divided monarchy of the ninth through the seventh centuries (6). It is also claimed that in the mid-eighth and early seventh centuries Venus and Mars collided, changing Mars' orbit, moving Venus into its present orbit, shifting the inclination of the axis of the earth, and slightly increasing the period of its revolution around the sun (7), This last cosmic catastrophe, Velikovsky believes, caused the destruction of the Assyrian army led by King Sennacherib, who was besieging Jerusalem at the time (8), and he argues that it is reflected in Assyrian texts as well as biblical accounts (9). Can Egyptian history be shifted by more than half a millennium as Velikovsky's synchronisms demand? The absolute dates assigned to Egyptian rulers or dynasties are calculated on the basis of ancient king lists and ancient references to astronomical phenomena. Since Velikovsky has questioned the uniformitarian assumptions upon which such calculations depend, almost all absolute dates in Egypt become questionable. ...
