Only a comprehensive stratigraphical review will decide firmly which of the two concepts discussed above is more feasible. However, initial evaluations- as presented above- clearly support the "synchronous age" approach as ...

... and diffusion of man, except for imposing sometimes rather obvious limits upon settlement. The Pleistocene-Pliocene boundary was set by the International Geological Congress of 1950 on the basis of late Cenozoic stratigraphy in Italy, more precisely on the entrance of northern marine invertebrates into the Mediterranean. This boundary, too, is scarcely useful, and should be ignored in reckoning the origins ... We will treat this matter when we discuss cultural hologenesis, but it may be worthwhile to mention here that the "Choukoutien formation must be considered as a perfectly homogeneous and distinct stratigraphical unit." To our view, this signals the possibility that the Choukoutien scenario was brief, not enduring for a hundred centuries or a thousand centuries. An archaelogical columnar section ... the origins of man in time. The Pleistocene record is always discontinuous and fragmentary, especially in glaciated areas. The task of scholars "would have been incomparably easier if some stratigraphic section covering the entire Pleistocene were available, showing, for instance a complete sequence of alternating tills and soils. Unfortunately, such a section seems to be available nowhere in the ...

From the view of the author's stratigraphical approach to history, of course, the Assyrian materials from inside Assyria and the Assyrianizing materials from without belong to one and the same Persian Empire.

From the Old-Akkadian period onward it exhibits the following stratigraphy: Stratigraphy of DÍr, Area 2 I Seleucids -300 IIB, A Old-Babylonians and "Kassites" -1700/1600 III Old-Babylonians -2000 IV Ur III -2150 VII to V Old-Akkadians -2400 ... order arises from a shortage of unambiguous information about their origin.

25. A Concluding Retort [Pensee]
... guide to archaeology. My and Isaacson's efforts were lost on Stiebing. Not only does he disregard the value of non-mute witnesses --the texts whether on monuments or on papyri --but in stratigraphy he, as so many other scholars, claims as fact what is expectation: he cites what should be found, and on what level, as if it is really found ... Spring-Summer, 1973), I have shown how utterly unfounded this assembly of astronomical computations is, and on how many arbitrary assumptions it depends. The direct method of dating in stratigraphical archaeology where organic material is found is to apply radiocarbon tests. In "The Pitfalls of Radiocarbon Dating" (Pensee, Spring-Summer, 1974) I examined the limitations of the ...

In my "Reply to Stiebing" (Pensee, Winter, 1973-74) I made it clear that the finds of ...

I:4 (July 1988) Home¦ Issue Contents The Israelite Conquest of Canaan Gunnar Heinsohn Abstract: Archaeological sites in the land of Israel, exhibiting some of the finest stratigraphies in the world, were expected to yield four major groups of strata following the Chalcolithic and prior to the Hellenistic Age: for the period of (i) the Canaanites, ... Mesopotamian chronology laid out in the monograph Die Sumerer Gab Es Nicht (Frankfurt, 1988). The claim made in this study implies that the historical eras relating to the archaelogical stratigraphy of the ancient Near East are recorded by the text books in two places: once in their correct historical place in the very late second and in the first millennium before our ... strata dated on the basis of their link with Amarna; by bringing them from the 14th to the 7th century B.C.E., everything else falls into line. Despite the impressive stratigraphic completeness of Megiddo and its sister sites, however, historians and archaeologists dealing with them have always suffered from the lack of credible strata for the Israelite period between -930 and -730 ...

The Problem Stated IN AN ARTICLE which appeared in Pensťe in 1973, W. H. STIEBING claimed that "Velikovsky's revised synchronisms for ancient ... cannot be reconciled with the stratigraphical evidence of archaeology" [1. One of Stiebing's objections to Velikovsky's chronology relies on the supposed association of Hyksos objects with pottery of the Middle Bronze II period in Palestine. I have shown elsewhere that this association does not bear close scrutiny [2. But Stiebing also raised another and more serious problem for the revised chronology ... the 1930's, none could be associated with any building remains [93. Hence they are not firmly linked with a particular building period, and have been conventionally dated independently of stratigraphic considerations to the reign of either Ahab or Jeroboam II [94. We must show that a much later date is possible. There is no a priori reason why ivories of ...

Let us turn to the question marks for the beginning of "City II" with its Barbar ware.

It was dated for its pottery also dug up at the Bahrein site ...

The equation Akkadians=Hyksos=Assyrians, thus, is not only historically but also materially and stratigraphically called for.
