... the dates of the ancient copper mines in the Arabah to the south of Israel. Dr Danelius had suggested that Velikovsky's revised chronology might well resolve this conflict in dating- involving a matter of several hundred years- and, after Dr Bimson had outlined his "revised stratigraphy" at the Glasgow Conference, that he should apply this to the problem of the Arabah mines. The dispute centred on the site of Timna, situated some 25 km north of the Gulf of Aqaba in the dry valley stretching up from the Red Sea. ... World.) At the same time as this wide-ranging evidence for Neolithic and Bronze Age societies with an almost obsessive interest in astronomy, the nature and causes of their disappearance were discussed by Dr Baity. Particularly striking are the results of Claude Schaeffer's work. In his Stratigraphie comparée et chronologie de l'Asie occidentale, Schaeffer assembled a wealth of archaeological data suggesting a series of simultaneous destructions at sites throughout Western Asia and the Eastern Mediterranean between the end of Early Bronze II and the end of the Late Bronze Age. [See Geoffrey Gammon's ...
92. The Archaeology of Hissarlik [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... The Archaeology of Hissarlik Any modern discussion of the stratigraphical situation at Troy must lean very heavily on the work of the University of Cincinnati expedition which dug at the site between 1932 and 1938 under the direction of Carl W. Blegen. The need for a new and definitive survey of Hissarlik arose in the 1920 ? s because of continuing uncertainties about the dating of the various strata identified earlier by Schliemann and Dörpfeld. Schliemann ? s great trenches, dug in haste in his relentless drive to reach the lower layers of the mound ... a well-deserved reputation for accuracy and thoroughness, to undertake a new examination of what remained of Hissarlik in the hope that the troubling chronological questions could once and for all be resolved. Before turning to the results of the American excavations, let us briefly glance at the stratigraphic situation as it was understood before Blegen. Schliemann ? s interpretations have already been reviewed his identification of Troy II with the Homeric Ilion led him to describe the sixth city with its characteristic Gray Minyan ware as a ? Lydian ? settlement, ? contemporary with the ...

... of a celestial deity; (iii) the sequence of events and characters in the Bible cannot be taken as a historical sequence. This is not due to any intention of the bible compilers to falsify the true record but to the lack of any means- like stratigraphy or reliable handbooks- to check the correct chronological order of things. The Hebrew pioneers had different texts on their tables and could only guess how to interconnect them. [Imagine yourself before a tray with snippets listing names of English kings plus some fragments of their ... Gilgamesch-Epos in der Weltliteratur, Strassburg, KJ Truebner, 1906, pp. 566-578). The borders of Solomon's empire are identical with the borders of Persia's Satrapy Transeuphrates. Again, the conventional dates of neither Solomon nor Tiglath-Pileser are taken at face value. The latter's stratigraphical position is immediately beneath Hellenism which brings him into the late Achaemenid period. Is he an Achaemenid Great King of the -5th/4th century in one or another of his Assyrian garbs or is he an Assyrian satrap put in charge of Satrapy Transeuphrates by an Achaemenid ...

... first critique focussing on this paper was written by Martin Sieff (in Aeon I:4 [1988). My answer to Sieff was begun late in 1988 and provisionally completed in September 1989. It runs over 148 pages and deals, inter alia, with the stratigraphy of Ashur (mentioned by Dr Newgrosh in Workshop 1989:2, p. 16) on pp. 30ff. A copy of p. 33 of this paper follows this letter and illustrates the enormous gap between the strata of the Old-Babylonian Martu (Mardu, ... the Parthians. Since I equate Cyrus's tribe of the Mardoi (also called Mardians or Amardians and known from Herodotus I:84, 125 as well as from Ctesias) with the enigmatic Martu, the Old-Babylonians materialise to the as yet archaeologically missing Persian satrapy Babylonia which stratigraphically has to precede the Parthians or- elsewhere- the Seleucids. Since, up to now, my answer to Martin Sieff could not be published Dr Newgrosh, of course, may feel free to state about me whatever he sees fit. He may even qualify ...

... generalization of the seismological explanation." 5. Long-enduring hiatuses or lapses followed the destruction, as after 1700 B. C.: "In all the sites examined up to now in Western Asia, a hiatus or period of extreme poverty causes a rupture of the stratigraphic or chronological sequence of the layers around 1700 B. C., and revival began only around 1550 B. C., 150 years later." John J. Bimson, reviewing "the Conquest of Canaan" in the time of Joshua, finds in ... at the same time or not? I shall commence by paying homage to Claude Schaeffer. For it was he who, despite onerous preoccupations during the French War of Liberation, assembled and analyzed the mass of data which was finally published in 1948 under the title of Stratigraphie Comparée et Chronologie de L'Asie Occidentale, IIIe-IIe millénaires. In this great work, he compared some 40 important archaeological sites in the Near and Middle East for evidences of sudden destruction. And he found, without fail, that there had appeared several levels over a ...

... Early dynasties, belong to the 8th century which, of course, preceded his 7th. Our reconstruction of the development of libraries, last but not least, also rehabilitates archaeological common sense: archives found under Hellenist strata of 330 BC belong to the Persian period where stratigraphy along would have them anyway. But back to our question: who could convince the ancient Near East that Akkadian would be the most appropriate lingua franca from Egypt to the Indus Valley? We already saw that Amarna's Semitic cuneiform is older than Old Babylonian West Semitic ... have to reply, only 9 (nine) Semitic cuneiform inscriptions were ever dug up in the numerous sites of Palestine (K. Galling: Textbuch zur Geschichte Israels [Tubingen, 1979, pp. 13ff). And only for a few of them is the stratigraphic position so well established as with the jug inscription from Hazor. No archive of any sort was ever found in Palestine. As meagre as the Hazor evidence might look in absolute terms, it presents quite a treasure, therefore, in relation to the whole corpus ...
97. An Integrated Model for an Earthwide Event at 2300 BC. Part II: The Geological Evidence [SIS C&C Review $]
... [14. An associated report is that the Saurashtra coast, just south of the Rann of Kutch underwent uplift some time around 2500 BC. The investigator based his finding on radiocarbon dating of coral reefs and fossil beach deposits along the coast [15. The sedimentation stratigraphy is very likely a result of the uplift. The sedimentation dating provides a more precise date for the Saurashtra uplift, and correlates well with the Indus Valley uplift. There is a serious speculation that, at the same time as the uplift at 2300 BC, ... 81, 83 39. C. E.

... over a wide area of the ancient East; the enumeration of the excavated sites discussed by him, just by their names alone, would fill several pages. In the concluding chapters of his work, Schaeffer wrote: The great perturbations which left their traces in the stratigraphy of the principal sites of the Bronze Age of Western Asia are six in number. The oldest among them shook, between 2400 and 2300, all of the land extending from the Caucasus in the north down to the valley of the Nile, where it became ... In his own excavations on Cyprus he could establish the very same order of events and their causes. He was so impressed by what he found that during the next few years, in the time of World War II, he put into writing a voluminous work, Stratigraphie comparée et chronologie de l ? Asie occidentale (IIIe et IIe millennaires), published by Oxford University Press in 1948. In over five hundred hundred pages he showed conclusively that the ancient East was several times disturbed by stupendous catastrophes during the third and second millennia ...

... the top in the form of a halo. There was also the story of Elijah seeing God in a cave and knowing beforehand due to the buzzing of 'bees'. After a chance to chat over a buffet lunch we reassembled to hear Bob Porter talk about 'the Stratigraphy of Israel'. Bob set out to convince us that the biblical Judges Period fits in well with the archaeology of the Middle Bronze Age in Israel (Palestine). We were shown a chart outlining the faulty conventional chronology alongside the versions of various revisionists which ... chart, since printed in his Shiloh article in Review XIII [1991. He then turned to an examination of the individual sites of Jerusalem, Jericho, Ai, Shechem, Shiloh, Samaria and Megiddo. The latter two would relate to the Iron Age and the stratigraphic position of the Assyrians. At Jerusalem, the water shaft up which David's men climbed was shown by Kenyon to have been built in connection with the MB defensive wall, making it pefectly feasible for this event to have taken place during the Amarna period when Abdi-Heba ...

... had said so five years back, how he would have been scoffed at." Just as the conservatives had refused a hearing to the Huttonian camp earlier, now the liberals pulled the same tactics when they got into power. The stronghold of catastrophism lay in a stratigraphy where unconformity and nonconformities, to say nothing of massive conglomerates, told of wide-ranging geological disasters in the past. Lyell, like Scrope before him, simply suppressed the evidence which did not fit in with his doctrines, and once he was voted into power, ... 1688, when the Catholics were driven out of England, a rash of works appeared reconciling the book of Genesis with the new research into nature. The most successful of these was John Woodward's Essay towards a Natural History of the Earth, in which he explained the stratigraphic sequence of rocks by supposing that during Noah's flood, all the surface rocks of the earth had been dissolved by the sea, later to be gradually precipitated out into the stratigraphic sequences which now comprise the secondary formations. Because the Woodwardian idea preserved the theme of ...
