21. Did the Sumerians and the Akkadians Ever Exist? [Aeon Journal $]
... The so-called late version of the epic from the library of Ashurbanipal (ca. 668 to ca. 627 BCE), however, is written in a much more repetitive, pedantic, and less variegated manner. Thus, the late version looks more archaic than the version supposedly up to 1300 years older. Also from a linguistic point of view, the so-called late version of the Gilgamesh Epic surprisingly appears to be older than the "Old Babylonian" version dated up to 1300 years earlier than that "late" version of the Assyrian king Ashurbanipal. Amazingly the "Old Babylonian" version of the Gilgamesh Epic of, at the earliest ca. 2000 BCE, bans the goddess Ishtar from her traditional position in the Eanna temple at Uruk and assigns this central sanctuary of Southern Mesopotamia to Anu who again gains cultic prominence only during the Seleucid period (312 to 126 BCE). VII From ca. 1750/1600 BCE: Feudal Kassite Period. Problems: The actual language of the Kassites is thought to be unknown. The approximately 12,000 documents in ...
22. Tiglath-pileser versus Pul: A challenge to the accepted view [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XIV:2 (July 1992) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION Tiglath-pileser versus Pul A challenge to the accepted view A. P.McIntyre The identification of the Assyrian king known as Tiglath-Pileser III in conventional history with the Assyrian king known as Pul in the Bible is taken as proven by almost all authorities, including the most adamant Bible scholars and theologians. That this concept is not correct is the subject of this brief essay. This article is taken from a chapter in the book "Bible 7, History 0" by this author. (Winston-Derek Publishers, Nashville, Tenn.) The misidentification of Tigiath-Pileser III with Pul is due primarily because all scholars use an incorrect chronology of the kings of Israel and Judah. The chronology most often used is a "Thiele" type chart which shows the division of the kingdom as about 931 B.C. A few still use an "Ussher" type chart which shows the division of the kingdom as anywhere from 972 B.C. to 976 B.C. (See "The Chronology of Israel and ...
23. Talk by Bob Porter on Middle Assyrian History [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 2001:1 (Apr 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents SIS Ancient History Study Group Meeting 19th Feb 2000 David Fairbairn, Daphne Garbett, Damien Mackey, David Roth, David Salkeld, Emmet Sweeney, John Crowe, Janek Pietron, Phillip Clapham and Val Pearce were present. Talk by Bob Porter on Middle Assyrian History On conventional dates the Middle Assyrian period runs from pre Ashur-uballit I through three well-attested kings in the 13th century, Adad-Nirari, Shalmaneser and Tukulti-Ninurta, then various minor kings- and later another high point- Tiglath-pileser I- then a load of nonentities down to the Neo-Assyrian period. Conventionally the Amarna period is with Ashur-uballit I and the Amarna letters, about 350 years too early for the New Chronology. A number of people have suggested that there must have been another Ashur-uballit, e.g. David Rohl pointed to an Eponym (year-name) Ashur-Bel-Lit as a possible candidate as this later King Ashur-uballit- he would be about the right time on the conventional chronology (c. 1000 BC) to match the New ...
24. Assyro-Babylonian Chronology In the 620's B.C. [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XIII:2 (July 1991) Home¦ Issue Contents Assyro-Babylonian Chronology In the 620's B.C.-- An Answer for Arie Dirkzwager Lester J. Mitcham It is clear that because of difficulties in dating the reigns of the Assyrian kings Assur-etillu-ilani, Sin-shum-lishir and Sin-shar-ishkun that as pointed out by Dr. Dirkzwager (C&AH, VI:1, p.45) the chronology of this period needs to be reconsidered. As Dr. Dirkzwager did not detail the nature of the problems we face in dating this period; and which has thus far proved elusive to those who have previously studied and tried to date this era, we may begin by restating that as several Assyrian kings in the immediately preceding period also ruled Babylonia that no upward movement of the established regnal dates for this era are possible. While Sargon II and Sennacherib only ruled Babylonia during parts of their reigns, Esarhaddon was king of both Assyria and Babylonia, for all of his reign. In Assyria his reign dates from his accession in 681/80 to 669 ...
25. Esarhaddon In Egypt [Kronos $]

From: Kronos Vol. IX No. 3 (Summer 1984) Home¦ Issue Contents Esarhaddon In Egypt Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright 1984 by the Estate of Elisheva Velikovsky Editor's Note: This article is a section of Velikovsky's forthcoming book The Assyrian Conquest- LMG ESARHADDON'S RECONQUEST OF EGYPT Several years after Sennacherib returned from his ill-fated campaign against Judah and Egypt, he was slain by two of his sons(- 681), while worshipping in the temple of Nergal (Mars).(1) Esarhaddon, his heir, pursued his brothers, but they escaped over the mountains to the north.(2) Then he tried to re-establish the shattered authority of Assyria in Syria and on the Phoenician shore. "I besieged, I captured, I plundered, I destroyed, I devastated, I burned with fire", wrote Esarhaddon.(3) "I hung the heads of the kings upon the shoulders of their nobles and with singing and music I paraded."(4) He threatened Tyre whose king "had put his trust in his friend ...
26. Did the Achaemenids Ape the Assyrians? [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... another part of my book), and they made the Assyrians their subjects, except for the province of Babylon' [2. Mainstream Assyriology, again, boasts the claim that- after 150 years of digging up Assyria- not a single brick or potsherd belonging to the Assyrians of the Medish period (-630 to -550) was ever found. The author claims the identity of Mitanni Assyria with Medish Assyria and of post-Mitanni Assyria with Persian period Assyria. In his latest article [3 he illustrated the latter identification by a juxtaposition of Assyrian and Achaemenid items from all fields of their material and spiritual culture. Whereas in that article he used one page for each pair of items, here they are arranged as a frieze. The references to the items shown are all given in the original article. This frieze contains typical cultural items from the ancient Near East. All the illustrations in the upper row derive from inside Assyria or from sites dominated by Assyria. The illustrations in the lower row all derive from Achaemenid territories outside Assyria. Conventional scholarship dates the Assyrian pieces ...
27. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... . To allow such evidence to decide a matter of this importance is surely an error. In fact, archaeology provides overwhelming support for Velikovsky's view that the 'Libyan' Dynasty (which was not Libyan at all, as we shall see) could only have come immediately after the time of Akhnaton. Not least is the artistic evidence, which shows the first of the 'Libyan' pharaohs portrayed in an unmistakeably Amarna style. The 'Ramesside' era, on the contrary, had readopted the traditional canons completely. The Libyan Dynasty was actually Assyrian- a fact illustrated by such names as Osorkon (Ashur-kan), Nemeret (Nimrud), Takelot (Tukulti/Tiglath), and Sosenk (Susa)- and accepted by many authorities, including Sir Flinders Petrie. In Velikovsky's chronology, this first Assyrian period of Egyptian history would have occurred ten years or so after the death of Tutankhamun (c.825 BC), and would have arisen through an invasion of Asiatic epigoni, descendants of warriors who had earlier accompanied Smenkhare in his attack on Thebes (an event portrayed on ...
28. Rethinking Mitanni/Hanigalbat [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History IV:1 (Jan 1982) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION Rethinking Mitanni/Hanigalbat Lester J. Mitcham Owing to a basic misunderstanding of Babylonian chronology and a complete mistreatment of the problems of Assyrian chronology, I accepted the conclusion of Robert Hewsen in his papers on Anatolian chronology.(1) A reexamination of the evidence proves that Hewsen has no support for his placement of the Kings of Hanigalbat, who were the known contemporaries of the Assyrian kings Adadnirari I and Shalmaneser I in the period c. 820-770 B.C. When it is recognized that the defeat of the kings of Hanigalbat-- Shattuara I, his son Uasashatta, and Shattuara II-- at the hand of the kings of Assyria belongs in the period 1300-1270 B.C., then it must also be acknowledged that Hanigalbat was a pre-Mitannian kingdom, with its "great royal city" of Taidu.(2) The archives of Assuruballit I are silent as to any conquest of Hanigalbat, and in view of the later well documented conquests by Adadnirari I and ...

We were on hand to watch the marriage-- via satellite-- of Prince Charles and Princess Diana. We have almost experienced the entire gestation period of their child, the future king of England. Millions of newspaper pictures, private photographs, and newsreels depict the royal infant with his proud family. All these things contribute to establish his claim to the throne of England. And if this were not enough to verify his physical claim to that seat of honor, we can consult his birth certificate, baptism record, and blood test information, all duly certified. This entire sequence of events bears unmistakable witness to the physical continuation of the House of Windsor-- and the reality of hereditary monarchy in England.
