11. Homeland for Heroes [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... of these Jewish pilgrims whose greatest wish was to lie in the Holy Land with their faces toward Jerusalem. And every religious Jew who died or dies in the dispersion and is buried by his fellow Jews — in Europe, in America, in Australia, in South-Africa is given a little pillow with sand from Palestine under his head, that he may lie on it in the place of his eternal rest, wherever that may be.*** The forefathers of the Jews did not leave Palestine of their own will. The Roman Empire subjugated all countries and all peoples in their reach — Saxons and Germans and Gauls — and none offered the resistance put up by the Jewin their little Palestine. The Roman Empire conquered all, and in the whole world there was none who would dare to fight for his freedom, none but the Jews, who rose to defend their land and their liberty. Wrote the Roman historian Tacitus, an enemy of the Jews, who lived in the time when the Jewish state was destroyed: ? The entire community of the ...

13. Sea Level Changes [SIS C&C Review $]
... such as tectonic uplift and land subsidence. Plate movement is another factor. For example, if Europe is moving away from North America, this may have involved episodes of enhanced or rapid spread, in contrast to the uniformitarian idea of continuous slow drift. Plate movement not only buckled hills and mountains and raised shorelines but caused the subsidence of land in some regions, as a result of stretched plates. This has historically affected the North Sea basin and may lie at the root of the sea level rises which occurred in the late Roman period. The geology of NW Europe since the end of the Ice Ages is intriguing. The North Sea basin is thought to have been dry land that was flooded as sea levels have changed. This idea would demand a universal increase in the amount of water in the oceans- but where would the water have come from? Around 6,000BC Britain was wrenched from the continent in what appears to have been a cataclysmic event, ripping apart the chalk downs and creating the white cliffs that are such a notable landscape feature ...
14. Festivals of Light [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... commemorate the ? miracle with the oil ? that was found undepleted and sufficed for seven days, is a poor rationalization. A better ground for a re-establishment of a holiday, so similar to the Saturnalia, in Judea, was in the fact that in the middle of the second century before the present era Rome conquered Greece, and about the same time in the rebellion of the Hashmanaim (better known by the name of one of the sons, Judah Maccabi) against Hellenistic rule, the people of Palestine were drawing near the Roman world with its usages. It appears that the Romans fomented the revolt in the Hellenized provinces at the time of their conquest of Greece. Thus the feast of Hanukkah seems to be an adaptation of the Roman Saturnalia. (6) The observation of this festival was later taken over by the festival of Christmas, which was originally observed for seven days, from the 25th of December until the first of the New Year. References [The earliest of the festivals of this type that we know of was the yearly seven-day-long celebration ...
15. Unorthodox evidence from Mexico [SIS C&C Review $]
... of the structures instead of the usual limestone facing which is characteristic of other Mayan sites. The use of bricks is not unique in that area, however, and may be simply a response to a lack of locally available limestone. The style of the site is otherwise typically Mayan but there are one or two unusual mounds and burials were performed in a way unknown elsewhere in the Mayan region. The bricks are inscribed and, while claims that the inscriptions are of Old World scripts have not been verified and certainly do not include Roman script, many of them bear an uncanny resemblance to Roman masons' marks, especially those used in Britain. There were also crosses, a symbol common in the early Christian era but not in Mayan inscriptions. If true, then the site would date to 100-300AD, whereas the accepted date for its development into a major trade and ceremonial centre is around 700-900AD. This date is based upon the undoubted connection between Comalcalco and the centre at Palenque and the general consensus that the brick masonry occurred at Comalcalco after the fall of ...
16. THAT LITTLE "ROMAN" HEAD FROM PRECOLUMBIAN MEXICO [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 96: Nov-Dec 1994 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects That little "roman" head from precolumbian mexico The miniature clay head illustrated below was discovered in 1933 in a burial offering in the archeological zone of Tecaxic-Calixtlahuaja, Mexico. The burial has been dated as from the 12th-13th centuries AD. The features of this little head can hardly be described as typical of Precolumbian Mexicans. In fact, it is often termed a "Roman" head. But is it really? And how did it get into a Pre-columbian burial site? Theory #1. Some Mexican archeologists insist it is a post-Columbian artifact that somehow "filtered" down into a Pre-columbian site. Given that the head was retrieved from beneath three floors of stone and Indian cement, this theory seems questionable. Theory #2. The head is truly of Roman origin and was transported to Precolum-bian Mexico from Southeast Asia by Chinese or Hindu voyagers. Theory 3. The author of the present article, R.H. Hristov ...
17. United You Stand [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... New York Post WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11, 1948 United You Stand Haganah and Irgun Don ? t Differ in Aims; Merely in Methods By OBSERVER In the year 70 of the present era, Jerusalem was besieged by the legions of Vespasian and Titus. For 200 years and more, there was no power in the world that would contest the power of Rome. But little Judea rose in revolt and year after year fought against Roman tyranny. The inability of Rome to achieve a decisive victory could become a signal for revolt in other parts of the empire. It was remarkable how small Judea defended itself against the legions of Rome, ? the most powerful empire next to that of Heaven,? in the words of its historian, Titus Livy. The legions of the Caesars, covering themselves with glory in all parts of the Roman world, were unable to capture Jerusalem.*** In those fateful days beseiged Jerusalem was defended by three groups of warriors: one was led by Simon bar Giora, another by John of Giscala, the third by ...
18. Romans In Rio? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 28: Jul-Aug 1983 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Romans in rio? In 1976, diver Jose Roberto Texeira salvaged two intact amphorae from the bottom of Guanabara Bay, 15 kilometers from Rio de Janeiro. Six years later, archeologist Robert Marx found thousands of pottery fragments in the same locality, including 200 necks from amphorae. Amphorae are tall storage vessels that were used widely throughout ancient Europe. These particular amphorae are of Roman manufacture, circa the second century B.C. Much controversy erupted around the finds because Spain and Portugal both claim to have discovered Brazil around 1500 A.D. Roman artifacts were distinctly unwelcome. More objectively, the thought of an ancient Roman crossing of the Atlantic is not so farfetched. Roman wrecks have been discovered in the Azores; and the shortest way across the Atlantic is from Africa to Brazil-- only 18 days using modern sailing vessels.

19. Timna and Egyptian Dates [Aeon Journal $]
... Timna-Site 200 excavation will be applied here to put to test the aforementioned chronological statements. Site 200, with the Egyptian Hathor Temple, was a low mound, measuring 15 by 15 meters and 1.5 meters in height. It was discovered by Benno Rothenberg in 1966 (i.e, much later than the copper works in the Timnna Valley) and excavated in March-June, 1969, and September-October, 1974. The stratigraphy of Timna was established as follows: Strata Historical Context Conventional Dates End of site proven by layer of wind-borne sand Stratum I Roman c. 105 to 235 AD Gap proven by layer of wind-carried sand Stratum II Brief Midianite settlement c. 1150 to 1100 BCE Stratum III 19th Dynasty/20th Dynasty c. 1300 to 1150 BCE Stratum IV 19th Dynasty/18th Dynasty c. 1500 to 1300 BCE Assumed gap of 1500 years. Serious questions about this supposed gap are raised by the absence of any aeolic layer and by the discovery that "New Kingdom small finds did in fact infiltrate down into Stratum V."

... creating mind, for Scarus then curses Cleopatra Yon ribaudred nag of Egypt-- Whom leprosy o'ertake! 3.10.9-1 1. In three lines of dialogue, there is a conjunction in Shakespeare's mind of pestilence, death, Egypt and leprosy. Yet, while the defeat of Antony may have overtones of a divine Old Testament holocaust, its consequence, the victory of Octavius, is cast in a New Testament mould. Octavius-- Caesar as he is always called in Antony and Cleopatra-- was to become Augustus, perhaps greatest of Roman emperors, creator of the Pax Romana that closed the long period of unrest, revolution, and war, with the time of peace in which Christ was to be born. Thus, in the war with Antony, when Antony's allies have deserted and sympathy for him is at its strongest, Caesar redresses the balance by a brief but significant reminder of his future role in history: The time of universal peace is near. Prove this a prosp'rous day, the three-nooked world Shall bear the olive freely.(2) Thus ...
