... From: Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home | Issue Contents A Return to the Two Sargons and Their Successors Dwardu Cardona Recapitulation For years Gunnar Heinsohn had been proposing a reconstruction of ancient Near Eastern history in which, among other things, the conquest of southern Mesopotamia by the Akkadians around -2350 was shown to have been merely the chronologically misplaced conquest of southern Mesop-otamia by the Assyrians in -700. Thus, according to him, Sargon of Akkad would really have been Sargon of Assyria. Lugalzagesi, whom Sargon of Akkad vanquished, would have been the alter-ego of Merodach-Baladan whom Sargon of Assyria vanquished. This also meant that the monarchs who succeeded Sargon of Akkad would only ...

If there is a prime example in this entire issue to illustrate the deceiving nature of generalities, it must surely be the above.

Introduction Gunnar Heinsohn has proposed a reconstruction of ancient Near Eastern history which, if valid, would revolutionize everything that has so far been written about this vast and complicated subject. Heinsohn, of course, is not the first to offer such a drastic reconstruction and, human nature being what it is, he will not be the last. In the past, none of these historical reconstructions, from that of Immanuel Velikovsky to the Glasgow Chronology, has withstood the test of scholarly analysis. The question here is: Will Heinsohn's ...

From: Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home | Issue Contents Heinsohn's Ancient "History"Ev Cochrane It is with a profound sense of ambivalence that I write this article, taking a critical stance towards the historical reconstruction of Gunnar Heinsohn. Not only do I regard Gunnar as a personal friend; he has long been a supporter of AEON, first as a contributor of numerous articles and also through featured appearances at various symposia. Yet the suspicion has been building for some time now that all is not well with Dr. Heinsohn's handling of the ancient sources. Since AEON has taken an active role in publicizing Heinsohn's researches, it follows that we have a certain ...

From: Aeon II:1 (1989) Home | Issue Contents Heinsohn and the Hyksos (An Answer to Martin Sieff)Clark Whelton In 1985 Martin Sieff alerted me to the radical reconstruction of Mesopotamian history which Gunnar Heinsohn had been working on for several years. After studying Heinsohn's thesis, I found myself increasingly drawn to his analytical method. He claims the archaeology of Mesopotamia does not confirm the existence of 10 major pre-Hellenistic empires as the textbooks say it should. Evidence of only five great powers- known in ancient times as Early Chaldeans (Kasdim, Kassites), Assyrians, Late Chaldeans and Medes (ruling simultaneously), and Persians- can be found in the ...

... Flood Event which he posited as its first cause'. It has been left to others to show the fruitfulness of his first and last assumptions and much of the important work since his death has been done in these two areas. None, in my view, has been more crucial in moving the work forward than the chronological revision of 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 ...

At the 40th Rècontre Assyriologique Internationale in Leiden, Holland, I obtained Dr. Thomas L. Thompson's Early History of the Israelite People, (2 ) an erudite historical work. I believe the book gets very close to correctly portraying the problems of Israelite history given that historical narratives of biblical Israel were written in the Persian and Hellenistic periods (3 ) Thus, it is extremely difficult to select the portions of the history which really correspond to the evidence and, therefore, can possibly ...

In recent years, a group of German authors have cast doubt on the trustworthiness of the Jewish chroniclers of the Crusades who stand accused of contributing to the biggest chronological forgery in history' [3 ]. Heribert Illig and Gunnar Heinsohn, the two main advocates of this assertion, claim that medieval Jewish writers employed a fictitious history and inflated chronology which positioned the Crusaders' onslaught some 300 years later than they had actually took place. In their view, the Crusades occurred in the 8th century and not, as every Jewish, Muslim or Christian historian at the ...

... From: Aeon II:5 (1991) Home | Issue Contents Heinsohn's Revised Chronology William H. Stiebing, Jr.Gunnar Heinsohn of the University of Bremen has proposed a major revision of the generally accepted chronology for Mesopotamia and the rest of the Near East which he claims is "evidence based." Supposedly, it makes better use of archaeological evidence as well as the data found in ancient texts than the conventional chronology does. However, the system he has proposed is fatally flawed for a number of reasons. In this paper I will point out four of these problems, commenting briefly on three of them and spending a bit more time on the fourth. ( ...
