62. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [SIS C&C Review $]
... .' (p. 38). As with the Ashyahu text we are left guessing what garbled version of a Mesopotamian king's name this represents, or in this case it may have been a deity. It is also interesting to note that Mizpah is a site where the dates are creeping downwards. Zorn's item on Nasbeh in the New Encyclopedia of Archaeological Excavations in the Holy Land (Vol. 3 pp. 1098-1102) dated Stratum 2 to the Babylonian period, whereas the new BAR article extends the date through most of the Persian period to c. 400 BC. Unfortunately the hoped for archive at Hazor has not yet materialised but they did turn up a life-size stone lion, apparently the twin of one discovered in Yadin's excavations 40 years ago. The lions probably stood at an entrance to the Late Bronze palace. Jezreel The third and last of the preliminary reports on Jezreel's excavations appeared with commendable promptness in Tel Aviv 24 (1997) pp. 6-72. More was traced of the giant rectangular, largely empty, Iron Age enclosure and moat attributed to ...
63. Historical Forum [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... it is more than unfortunate; it is an unacceptable anomaly which certainly justifies the substitution of someone important. He goes on to infer that the tables could be turned on I.V. by pointing out that no remains of Ramses II have been found at Carchemish. This, though, is hardly surprising if he was defeated by Nebuchadnezzar before he had even set foot in the place. The fact that Wehibre Neko's seals were found in a house at Carchemish together with a ring belonging to Psamtek proves nothing if these people were the high Persian officials of a later date as Velikovsky contends. The only "firm" link that James seems to offer here is that of the connection with Taharka, but in Gardiner's 'Egypt of the Pharaohs' p.353, it isn't Psamtek (i.e. Velikovsky's Psamshek) who is linked with the time of Taharka but Psammetichus as one might expect. In other words the Apis bull confirms nothing against Velikovsky's thesis, and there is no "unequivocal proof" to the contrary. 3. The fact that a stele of Seti was found at ...
64. Gozan [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... visited by Benjamin of Tudela, the Spanish Jewish traveller. He claimed to have found the Ten Tribes. The region of Scythia and Sarmatia abounds in Assyrian relics of the seventh century B.C.E. The Khazars are supposed to have acquired their Jewish religion in the Christian era. However the names of the Khazar kings reveal names found among the Israelites in the days of the Jewish kings of the eighth pre-Christian century, not names of the later periods, like the Hellenistic or Roman (Matathiam, Hillel, Gamliel), It appears that Persian Jews in the Persian time established contact with the Israelites on the Volga. ...
65. Beth-Shan [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... many consecutive important periods in the history of Beth-Shan, is equal in thickness to layers deposited every seven years during the reign of Seti; and again, this 922-year deposit is but one fifth the thickness of the stratum of Ramses II alone. The real meaning of the strata archaeology of Beth-Shan is as follows: Strata IX to V (Thutmose III to Ramses II) cover the period of the kings from Solomon to Zedekiah and the exile. Stratum IV covers only the end of the Neo-Babylonian period (Nabonidus) and the old Persian, which is contemporaneous with the Later Ramessides. Strata III, II, and I are correctly presented as Hellenistic-Roman, Byzantine, and Arabian. As, actually, the time of Seti is the same as the period of the Scythians in the Near East, the time of Ramses II the same as the period of the Neo-Babylonian Empire under Nebuchadnezzar, and the Late Ramessides period the same as the Persian, it is no wonder that the levels are found to be ? disturbed.? Dealing with the finds of the Ramses ...

68. Great Britain Bets On The Wrong Horse [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Today, the two great forces that stand on the threshold of the Middle East are the United States and Russia. From under the nose of Great Britain the United States took possession of the oil of the entire Arab peninsula, an area that for decades lay in the British sphere. Russia, taught by the experience of the war how important it is for her to have access to a warm sea, put pressure on Turkey, which controls the Dardanelles, and on Persia, through which passed the war supply route from the Persian Gulf to the Caucasus. Russia did not make any real move to compete with Great Britain on the Arab peninsula; it was America who took over the oil concessions in Arabia, leaving Britain with her old concession in southern Persia and a half share of Iraqi oil.*** GREAT BRITAIN Was very much put out by the fact that she had been so slow and that the United States had snatched up the Arabian concession. She decided to prove to the Arab world that the British are greater friends of theirs than ...
... the fire which Matarisvan stole became the god Agni and this is significant because Velikovsky has already identified Agni with the planet Venus(5) and had connected the myth of Prometheus with the fall of Naphtha from the same body.(6) The assimilation of Vahagn to the Mazdean Verethraghna supports this identification of Vahagn with Venus, for Verethraghna, in his capacity as patron of fire, is connected with the worship of the flaming naphtha fields of the Apcheron Peninsula (now in Soviet Azerbaidzhan but long in the territory of the ancient Persian Empire). These fields, of course, could be nothing more than the naphtha which Velikovsky believes to have fallen from Venus.(7) (All of this would seem to point to Vahagn as being a personification of the planet Venus, an identification possibly further supported by the fact that Lucifer, which means "light-bringer" in Latin, is likewise used to translate one of the Hebrew names (Helel) for the same planet.) In the Armenian sources which have come down to us, Vahagn appears both ...
70. Heinsohn's Revised Chronology [Aeon Journal $]
... 1) He argues that our knowledge of the now lost writings of the Hellenistic historians Manetho (for Egypt) and Berossus (for Mesopotamia) comes only from ancient Jewish and Christian authors who already had adapted them to biblical chronology. (2) Because of belief in the antiquity of Abraham, the beginnings of Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilization were stretched back to the beginning of the third millennium BCE and later scholars ignored the testimony of ancient authors who knew only four pre-Hellenistic periods in Mesopotamia: early Chaldean, Assyrian, Chaldean, and Persian. However, there is clear evidence that, without any influence from biblical chronology, the ancients (especially the Greeks) believed that civilization had very ancient beginnings. Herodotus, the fifth century BCE Greek historian, stated that while he was visiting Egypt priests informed him that three hundred forty-one kings had reigned from the beginning of the Egyptian monarchy to the time of the Assyrian conquerer Sennacherib. Herodotus calculated that this lineage covered 11,340 years. (3) He also mentions that the Egyptians showed Hecataeus, an earlier Greek ...
