11. Early History of the Israelite People: Biblical Fundamentalism in History (I) [The Velikovskian $]
... Heinsohn, (J-Q); Gunnar Heinsohn (S), "The Rehabilitation of Israel's History Through Synchronization of the Contents of Biblical Historical Narratives with the Material Remains in Israel's Stratigraphies," a poster distributed at the annual meeting of the Canadian Society for Interdisciplinary Studies (CSIS), Toronto, Ontario, Canada (August 21, 1992); and ... problem is, as one can recognize, aggravated by the lack of a reliable chronology which can be applied to the actual strata in the ground. Only a sound combination of stratigraphy and chronology will provide "an independently derived history," (4) in comparison to which the biblical narratives can be made to yield a history of ancient Israel. Thompson ... , "Stratigraphische Chronologie Israels. Ein Kurzabris zur Rehabilitation historischer Informationen aus den biblischen Legenden," Vorzeit-Frühzeit-Gegenwart 3: 5 (1991); Gunnar Heinsohn (N), "Stratigraphical Chronology of Ancient Israel: A Brief Rehabilitation of Historical Information Contained in Biblical Narratives," a report read at the annual conference of the Canadian Society for Interdisciplinary Studies (CSIS ...
12. Forum Part Two [SIS C&C Review $]
... is that all Bronze Age civilisations were repeatedly destroyed, severely damaged or abandoned. Which leads us to the fifth hypothesis: 5. A global analysis of Bronze Age sites and stratigraphies will provide evidence for multiple, approximately synchronous destructions of cities and cultures. The relatively new search for archaeological evidence of cosmic catastrophes is producing more and more information about such events ... an international project which would focus on comparative research into stratigraphical records for all human civilisations from the last Ice Age to the Iron Age. This long-term project, temporarily codenamed 'Comparative Stratigraphy of Planet Earth's Historical Period', would continue where Schaeffer, Velikovsky, Mandelkehr and Heinsohn started off. It would collect data from as many archaeological sites as possible and provide ... the Middle Bronze Age and the Late Bronze Age. In his view, the Middle Bronze Age civilisations were destroyed by earthquakes. Relying exclusively on Geoffrey Gammon's summary of Claude Schaeffer's stratigraphical analysis of Near Eastern destruction layers [28, Bob Porter, on the other hand, links the final destruction of Late Bronze III to the so-called Sea Peoples who used to ...
13. Scientific Dating Methods In Ruins [The Velikovskian $]
... . (3) What Stiebing offers, in part, to refute the historical revisions, are four scientific dating methods: radiocarbon (C-14) dating, dendrochronology, thermoluminescence and stratigraphy. These methodologies are, according to Stiebing, in full agreement with the established chronology and, therefore, cannot be invoked to support major revisions of ancient history. I will ... the artifact lies. Even Stiebing invoked erosion, at the conference of the International Scociety for the Comparative Study of Civilizations (ISCSC), in 1986, to explain the missing stratigraphical layers in the ancient Near East. Removing soil leaves an object nearer to the surface, where the temperature variations will be greater than for objects buried by erosional processes. Whether ... his statements indicate that he does not really understand archeological methodology or the basic principles of stratigraphy." (56) Elsewhere, Stiebing adds, Heinsohn seems unaware of this [stratigraphic principle, for his system requires impossible correlations of archeological material. He has no concern for archeological contents of the strata, which he shifts around to fit his Mesopotamian chronology. ...
14. Did the Sumerians and the Akkadians Ever Exist? [Aeon Journal $]
... directly underneath the so-called neo-Babylonian levels from the middle of the first millennium BCE. The magnificent "Sumerian" vassal graves of the so-called Royal Cemetery at Ur, which according to stratigraphy must be placed at the end of the early dynastic period, have an uncanny resemblance to the graves of the Scythian princes dated 1500 years later. The comparative study of the ... Near East in regard to social structure, technology and religion, but also runs parallel with it chronologically. Once Bible fundamentalistic dating for Mesopotamia is dropped in favor of a strictly stratigraphical dating method, which has long been in use for ancient China, the date for the origin of civilization in China, ca. 1500 /BCE, applies with equal force ... . 2350 BCE: Conquest of southern Mesopotamia by the Akkadians, whose king Sargon is considered to be the founder of the first extensive empire in history. Problems: No convincing stratigraphic evidence for mankind's "first empire" has ever been found. The material remains of "Akkad" were expected to be present in very deep strata, overlaid with layers from ...
15. 'Worlds in Collision' After Heinsohn [SIS C&C Review $]
... Gunnar Heinsohn. The main outlines of this are already clear if pieced together from his published work to date, though much remains to be done in showing that his argument from stratigraphy and artefacts will support a complete re-reading of ancient texts in the sequence he proposes. My aim here is not to prove Heinsohn correct but simply to see what the consequences for ... . 4, pp. 15-51, 1993, d. 'The Restoration of Ancient History', presented at Velikovsky Reconsidered II, Portland, Oregon, Nov. 1994, 'The Stratigraphical Chronology of Ancient Israel', Aeon Vol. III No. 6, pp. 35-47, 1994. As this paper shows, this is ultimately more disruptive of the scenarios ... , considering the civilisations whose records Velikovsky uses to provide the main evidence for each event. Heinsohn's methodology involves respect for stratigraphy and scepticism about 'dark ages' posited in contradiction to stratigraphic evidence. He has applied it to evidence from the Iron Age to Neanderthal Man, with a resulting compression of time which makes even a Velikovskian reel: the transition from Bronze ...

The interpretation, however, which maintains that destruction layers are caused by seismic catastrophes, has been disputed due to the ambiguity of the stratigraphic record. The need for an accurate methodology of verifying the actual cause, extent and synchrony of Bronze Age destructions is therefore essential.

17. Heinsohn's Revised Chronology [Aeon Journal $]
... tablets, nowhere is there a stratigraphy filling 4000 years, though according to the extent of the 'Akkadian' Empire or the Ur III city states there should be hundreds of such stratigraphies. (32) An archaeological stratigraphy for an area is built up from the study of all of the excavated sites, and no one of them is likely to exhibit the ... the 1000 to 1500 year difference required by Heinsohn. The general agreement of the dates provided by these various dating techniques provides objective evidence against Heinsohn's chronology. (4) Archaeological Stratigraphy Heinsohn claims that his system agrees with archaeological evidence when this is interpreted correctly. But a number of his statements indicate that he does not really understand archaeological methodology or the basic ... (32) An archaeological stratigraphy for an area is built up from the study of all of the excavated sites, and no one of them is likely to exhibit the entire stratigraphical sequence. If one site has three strata in succession, we can be sure that the top stratum is later than the middle one and that the middle one is later than ...
18. Untitled [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... Iron interchange, which is identified by Courville, Vaninger and myself as the time of the Assyrian conquest of the northern kingdom. To maintain his "semi-conventional" position on the stratigraphy, Cardona must dismiss this coincidence of the stratigraphical record with the Hebrew literary one as a coincidence. But applying these same fastidious standards to his own interpretation of the literary sources ... own passionately-held Saturn theories are based on the assumption that the Mesopotamian mythical texts, as interpreted by him, are immensely ancient. Accepting Heinsohn's putting the Exodus further back in the stratigraphical record; and-- most of all-- bringing the end of the Early Bronze Age down in time by up to 800 years, from 2300 B.C. to 1500 ... 6:26. Cardona ignores the utter lack of evidence for his fantasy of settling on top of ruins. He ignores the correspondence of the Book of Judges account with my stratigraphic model. Instead, he blithely concludes, "It was not uncommon in ancient times for homeless peoples to settle amid the debris of ruined towns and cities... Such ...
19. Experiments with Time II: Synchronisms and Stratigraphies [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1998:2 (Mar 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Experiments with Time II: Synchronisms and Stratigraphies by Geoffrey Knowler Barnard Introduction In the first series of 'Experiments with Time', the Egyptian Conventional Chronology was revised downwards and related to a new interpretation of the Mesopotamian chronologies. These involved the separation of each of ... parallel dynasties [1. This relationship created a new chronological structure which forms the basis of the 'Absolute Chronology'. This is now further developed by the use of Schaeffer's comparative stratigraphy, to show how it relates to other countries of the Ancient World. This will be done partly by chronological synchronisms and partly by stratigraphical comparisons. 1. Revised royal synchronisms ... Egypt, Assyria, Babylonia and Anatolia (Hatti) Provided they are accurate, synchronisms are one way of linking the chronologies of different countries. Unfortunately, in practice a familiar difficulty is encountered- the confusion of similar names. A good example is the list of 'generally accepted royal synchronisms' based on the Conventional Chronology. When these are redated in accordance ...
20. EARLY GLASSMAKING AND CHRONOLOGICAL PUZZLES [Aeon Journal $]
... and that of 7th century B.C.E. products. The same holds for the production process. The different dates are due to prefabricated chronological schemes innocently applied by field archaeologists to their stratigraphies. V. MESOPOTAMIA: WAS GLASS THRICE INVENTED AND TWICE FORGOTTEN? Apart from some round and hexagonal cylindrical beads as well as an eye bead from Nineveh/ level IV and ... discontinuity and technological setback in the later 2nd millennium B.C.E. All Mesopotamian glass dated between 1500 and 1200 B.C.E. is Amarna dated. Thus, again, it is not absolute stratigraphy which brings researchers to peculiar dates but the possibility of connecting a stratum to a person who wrote to Amarna or who can be genealogically linked to a person who wrote to Amarna ... to Archaemenid Iranian ware." (44) This proto-Achaemenid ware even would make a lot of sense as full-clad Achaemenid ware with Hellenistic ware found in level IIIA. From the stratigraphic point of view, thus, one would date level IV with its inlaid glass beakers in the Persian period of the 5th or 4th century B.C.E. This is also indicated by ...
