1. Problems for Rohl's New Chronology [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1991 No 1 (July 1991) Home¦ Issue Contents FORUM Problems for Rohl's New Chronology Emmet Sweeney questions: A. Greece David Rohl places the Trojan War around 950 BC and the end of the Bronze Age about fifty years later. Yet these early dates fly in the face of a great body of evidence. The Olympiads: 1. How is it that Homer, who must have been born within a century of the First Olympiad (traditionally 776 BC), speaks of King Nestor as a victor in the Games? (Iliad xi, 671,& 761) 2. How is it that numerous Heroic Age figures who lived before the Trojan War were said to have taken part in the Games, and one tradition stated that the festival was founded by Pelops, grandfather of Agamemnon? (Pausanias v, 8, 1,& vi, 20, 8) The Alphabet: 1. No scholar has yet claimed that the Greek alphabet predates c.800 BC, yet Herodotus tells us [5, 59 ...
2. Forum [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 6 No 1 (May 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum Question from Bob Doorenbos: In the Rohl/James Chronology (item 19(c) on page 20 of WORKSHOP 5:2) it is argued that the 'Shishak' who gave his daughter to Solomon as a wife cannot have been Thutmose III as per Velikovsky's suggestion because Thutmose III did not reign long enough. On page 7 of WORKSHOP 5:3 this is again stressed by David Rohl in the reply to Jim Clarke's question. However, it was never suggested by Velikovsky, nor is it stated in the Bible, that the Shishak who sacked the Temple and 'Pharaoh', father-in-law of Solomon, were one and the same person. Velikovsky explicitly suggested Thutmose I as the father-in-law of Solomon and not Thutmose III (having proposed two pharaohs called Shishak in AGES IN CHAOS- Chapter III, page 104). There seems, therefore, to be no sense in arguing that the reign length of Thutmose III is a realistic objection to his identity with Shishak ...
3. Testing Rohl's Test of Time [Aeon Journal $]
... of time. Lending itself towards an eight word summary-- "brilliant, exciting, compelling but regrettably wrong, wrong, wrong"-- perhaps it is fairer to suggest that it is more wrong in some parts than others, although the allover trend is con-sistently astray. It is also, in terms of raw information, much shorter than its bulk and title promise, where so much space is given over to attractive, well organized informative visuals (commercially often the key ingredient in non-fiction pub-lishing), showing that David Rohl was well advised on this important "flavour of the month" issue. In far too many instance though, surveying these immensely enjoyable cameos becomes unintentionally a diversion, resulting in difficulty in grasping the full flow, at least so it proved to this writer. To be candid, I would have preferred the same space to have been used to provide a much more "meaty" text by which the overall chronological implications might be better assessed, although, in reality, there is more than enough information delivered to seal the ...
4. A Test of Time: Volume I the Bible - From Myth to History by David M. Rohl [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1996:1 Home¦ Issue Contents REVIEWS A Test of Time: Volume I the Bible- From Myth to History by David M. Rohl (Random Century, 1995). In Volume XIV of Chronology and Catastrophism Review, I reviewed Centuries of Darkness, in which Peter James, in collaboration with Nick Thorpe, Nikos Kokkinos, Robert Morkot and John Frankish, examined the archaeological record of Western Asia, the Mediterranean basin and prehistoric Europe in the Late Bronze and early Iron Ages and concluded that the 'Dark Age', which a majority of archaeologists and ancient historians had identified between the early 12th and late 8th centuries BC, did not in fact exist. They argued convincingly that it was a false construct, arising from errors in the generally accepted chronology of Pharaonic Egypt prior to the sack of Thebes by the Assyrian king Aššurbanipal in 664 BC. This in turn led them to conclude that the dates for the transition from the Late Bronze to the early Iron Ages should be reduced by some 250 years in the ...
5. Forum [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 5 No 4 (1983) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum Questions and Answers on the Revised Chronology of Rohl& James Questions from Marvin A. Luckerman I have to sympathise with David Rohl and Peter James for their effort to find a suitable chronology for the ancient world. I have certainly read many books, articles, etc on ancient history which has made me vacillate between the conventional chronology, Velikovsky's chronology, the "Glasgow chronology", Courville's chronology, and many others. On this new attempt, it is hard for me to accept it at this time. My main objection to it is the equating of Ramesses II with Shishak, the conqueror of Rehoboam's Jerusalem. There are three main reasons: the Israel Stele; Thutmose III; and the el-Amarna Letters. 1. Merenptahs the author of the Israel Stere, was the successor to Ramesses II. In the Stele he, of course, mentioned that the Seed of Israel (written with a hieroglyphic determinative which suggests that the Israelites were not yet a settled people) ...
6. The Role Of The Nile In Egyptian Chronology [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 2001:2 (Jan 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents The Role Of The Nile In Egyptian Chronology by Lynn E. Rose The 1996 reprint of the 2 nd edition of Kitchen's The Third Intermediate Period in Egypt (1100-650 BC) [1 included a new Preface emphasising a west-Theban graffito that supposedly noted the arrival of the flood on III 3ht 3 in Year 1 of Baienre (= Merneptah). This is the usual reading. Later, an alternative reading by David Rohl will be considered. On p. xlv, Kitchen gives the full graffito [2 as follows: 'Year 1, 3 rd month of Akhet [= Inundation, day 3, (on) this day of the descent made by the water of the great inundation- (under) King of S& N Egypt, Baienre, LPH.' Gardiner [3 puts the reign of Binere/Merneptah from '1224-1214'. (These are 'historical' dates, equivalent to 'astronomical' dates of from -1223 to -1213.) Retrojecting the various ...
7. The 'New Chronology' and the Amarna Period [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1993 No 2 (Jan 1994) Home¦ Issue Contents The 'New Chronology' and the Amarna Period Jeremy Goldberg asks 'Where's David?' A fairly recent article by D. Rohl and B. Newgrosh (C.& C. Review :X, 1988, pp. 23ff) dates the end of the Amarna period diplomatic archive to the early reign of David. Such a dating requires, of course, some sort of account of David's role in this archive. However, the proposals which have been offered range from speculative to quite far fetched. Based on an identification (see below) of Labayu with Saul, these writers have identified two 'sons' of Labayu with Saul's heir, Ishbaal and his son-in-law, David (pp. 34ff). However, this suggestion is difficult to believe, because every extant reference to these 'sons' depicts them as acting in concert. A perhaps equally far fetched and, in any case, too isolated, suggestion (following a 'very important observation' by Peter van ...
8. Rohl's Revised Egyptian Chronology: Difficulties and an Alternative [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XV:1 (Jan 1993) Home¦ Issue Contents Rohl's Revised Egyptian Chronology: Difficulties and an Alternative Jeremy Goldberg A recent article by David Rohl appears to have presented a number of very sound Egyptological arguments for a considerable shortening of Egyptian chronology between Dynasties 19 and 26. 1 However, his proposed alternative chronology 2, which would down date year 67 of Ramesses II from 1213 to 867 BC, is clearly too short by a wide margin. Likewise, this appears to be the case even for Rohl and James' previous downdating of this regnal year to c. 920. 3 The preceding negative conclusions already appear to be required on purely chronological grounds, as Rohl's current scheme appears to require (seemingly extremely dubiously at the very best) a considerable overlap between middle and later Dyn. 20 rulers, and (Rohl and James: or) a dating of Shoshenq V's accession to after that of Psammetich I. 4 And as this writer has argued at length in Vol 12/2, the abundant genealogical evidence ...
9. Dating the Amarna Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1989 No 2 (Feb 1990) Home¦ Issue Contents FORUM Dating the Amarna Letters Rejoinder from Brad Aaronson: It was interesting to see the comments on the Rohl/Newgrosh Chronology made by Anthony Chavasse (Workshop 1989:1). It seems clear that Chavasse was implying the possibility of identifying Labayu with Ahab. We should keep in mind that very few of those who continue to support Velikovsky's 18th Dynasty dates accept his identification of Rib-Addi and Abdi-Hiba as Ahab and Jehoshaphat, particularly after Martin Sieff and Peter James demonstrated that Jehoram and Joram fit much better. Thus the suggestion that Rib-Addi be seen as a son of Labayu should be seen in this context. Bernard Newgrosh asked in response to Chavasse who Mut-Balu son of Labayu could be. I would think this would be clear. Rohl and Newgrosh (Review X) equated Mut-Balu and 'Ishbaal' son of Saul. Now Ish-Boshet son of Saul is referred to in places as 'Eshbaal', the Israelite equivalent of the Phoenician 'Ethbaal', or Ithobaal. Giving the ...
