... various chronologies to see which version this piece of data favours: INAUGURATION of SETH HOREMHAB Year 1 INTERVAL in Years CONVENTIONAL: 1640 to 1319= 321 VELIKOVSKY: 1426 to 670= 756 GLASGOW: 1426 to 822= 604 ROHL/JAMES: 1426 to 1016= 410 I leave the reader to decide which of the chronologies comes out closest to the contemporary evidence of the stela! For Bernard's second point concerning the disastrous plague at the end of David's reign- all we can say is thanks for finding another synchronism for our el Amarna/Early Monarchy revision. There was indeed a severe plague in Palestine and Syria during the years of the late 18th and early 19th Dynasties as recorded by the Hittite king Mursilis II. In the new revision the later years of king David correspond with this same period and it is reassuring to find evidence of just such a plague in the Biblical records of the time. Here's our TIP for a new Kitchen! For some time now we have been aware that those members with a keen interest in the Rohl/James revision ...

... be attested to during the time of Assur-nadin-ahe- identifiable in this case as Essarhaddon. At present, the latest documented record referring to this kingdom comes from the correspondence of Hattusilis III.(2) 2. Assur-danin-apli. Again I would say this is quite unacceptable unless Mr James can offer an acceptable chronology for the XVIIIth Dynasty that would enable us to place the last part of the reign of Akhnaton as late as the years 828 to 823 BC. Such late dates for this reign would create problems with the dating of the Amarna period. It is therefore unlikely that the Assyrian letters could have come from this period. 3. Mr James also reviewed the solutions proposed by Courville and Velikovsky. Again, both appear quite unacceptable for the reasons Mr James has stated. In addition, the Courville solution would seem to require the acceptance of Assur-nadin-ahe as Shalmaneser III. Later Courville has also pointed to the possibility of a Syrian ruler.(3) 4. We are therefore left with the possibility, in the absence of other alternatives, that Assuruballit may ...
93. Akhenaten - Heretic or Visionary [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:2 (Sep 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents Akhenaten- Heretic or Visionary John Davis Summary This task gave a brief summary, partly historical, of people's attempts to categorise Akhenaten in one of these two pigeonholes. There was some discussion of what 'heretic' might have meant to the ancient Egyptians, and to what extent he fitted the description. In the first half century or so after the discovery of the Amarna royal tomb there were highly enthusiastic and glowing descriptions of Akhenaten's accomplishments, but these have typically given way to a much more critical appraisal. Akhenaton and his wife Nefertiti on a limestone house stela, from the 18th Dynasty of the New Kingdom. The sun god Aten is center. Content John began by quoting the first lines of the poem "Ozymandias" by Shelley, relating to Ramesses II. However, although Akhenaten was almost entirely unknown in Shelley's time (with only a few reliefs found in out-of-the-way places) vastly more has now been written and speculated about him than about Ramesses in recent years. ...
94. The Egypt Exploration Society Hears the New Chronology [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... represented with burials. David completes his case for a 22nd/21st Dynasty overlap with a magnificent slide of the tomb of Akheperre Psusennes I (21st) which was built into (its stones cut into the side of) the tomb of Osorkon II (22nd), with the nearby temple of Amun of Osorkon II being carefully avoided during the construction of Psusennes's tomb. With time pressing, David fairly skims over much more evidence, including that of the Memphite Genealogy. Travelling back in time, he outlines his case for an Amarna/Early Monarchy synchronism in which Saul and his family appear among the El Amarna correspondents. Consequent upon this synchronism is the further identification of Ramesses II as Shishak, with his expedition to capture Salem in his year 8 being the counterpart of Shishak's taking of Jerusalem. The revision goes further back yet- as far as the biblical Exodus from Egypt- and here David produces Manfred Bietak's evidence from Tell ed Daba where an occupation level with many Asiatic servant type dwellings ends suddenly and the succeeding level is Hyksos. Never did an ...

... dinosaurs: were they cold or warm blooded, could they run, what is their relationship to the birds, and how do they fit with the Gould/Eldredge ideas on 'punctuated equilibrium'? Well illustrated and highly readable. Cosmic Blueprint by Prof. Paul Davies. Heinemann (1987). The originator of ideas on 'the creative cosmos', Prof. Paul Davies of Newcastle University is a lucid writer who makes physics simple, dynamic and interesting. This work will appeal to experts and lay people alike. Les Lettres d'El Amarna by William F. Moran: translation from English to French by Dominique Collon and Henri Cazelles. Les Editions du Cerf, 29 bd Latour-Maubourg, Paris (1987). The most up-to-date translation of all the known Amarna letters, this is a quite invaluable source book. It is truly amazing, however, that it was not published in English but was instead translated into French for publication. The Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins. Reprinted in paperback by Penguin (Harmondsworth 1988). From the originator of the 'selfish gene' ...

... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1988 (Vol X) Home¦ Issue Contents El-Amarna Excursuses EXCURSUS A The Language of EA 252 In his article 'An Archaic Hebrew Proverb in an Amarna Letter from Central Palestine' JNES 89 (1943), pp. 29-32, Albright records the following notes about the language used by Labayu in his earliest letter to Amenhotep III: -line 8: 'This strange form, which is found several times in the letters, may be the result of confusion between the verb nasaru (in its rare second form nussuru?) and the word which appears in Hebrew as 'asar, "to check, resist, arrest."' -lines 8, 10: 'This meaning of ki is also common in Biblical Hebrew' -line 14: 'Can. sirti is the passive preterite of the verb which appears in Hebrew as sur, "to trick, betray."' -line 16: 'The relative pronoun sa can perfectly well be South Canaanite as well as Accadian, since it occurs in the Song of Deborah... as well ...
97. Some Notes on the Revised Chronology (part two) [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 3 No 3 (Jan 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents Some Notes on the Revised Chronology (part two) Lester J. Mitcham 7). Velikovsky has not yet published his views on the problem of the 14th century Ashuruballit I being a correspondent of the 9th century Amarna Pharaohs (see Peter James: "Some Notes on the Ashuruballit Problem", SIS REVIEW IV:I, p.18-22- Ed.). Courville, in noting a genealogical discrepancy involved in accepting the 14th century Assyrian king of this name as the author of these letters, breaks off in his quote from Luckenbill, just short of the explanation regarding Assur-nadin-ahe. The placement of this king in relationship to Ashuruballit is clarified by Poebel, whereas if we accept Courville's proposal that Ashuruballit may have been "a prince son of Shalmaneser III" then we have no Assur-nadin-ahe anywhere in his immediate ancestry. Velikovsky sees the Babylonian Burnaburiash as the "alter ego of Shalmaneser the Assyrian"- a most unlikely explanation, in view of Shalmaneser's own archives and Burnaburiash's request ...
98. Society News [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 2 (Sep 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents Society News Ancient History Study Group The Ancient History Study Group held another meeting at 11 Dulwich Court on Sunday 19th July '81. The discussion centred around Lester J. Mitcham's 'Some Notes on the Revised Chronology' which appeared in WORKSHOP 3:3 p.6. Peter James advanced some interesting arguments against Velikovsky's identification of Sumer of the El Amarna letters as Samaria, preferring to identify Sumer with Simyra, a town in Northern Syria near Arvad which apparently had been of some importance in ancient times. His conclusions are in preparation for publication in the near future. Further interest was generated by means of a collection of notes which had been prepared by Philip Clapham and handed around to those present. These notes had been read by Mr Clapham during the previous meeting and also dealt with the questions raised by Lester Mitcham's article. One of Philip Clapham's main criticisms of Lester Mitcham concerned Velikovsky's identification of Shalmaneser with Burnaburiash. He felt that Velikovsky could conceivably be correct in his identification in view ...
99. Menkheperre Thutmose, A.K.A. Shishak Melech [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... originated with Thutmose III- which would give a very strong connection. (Gardiner gives some references in his "sign-list" under 'ff "fly" (L3) which may be worth someone's while to follow up.) M .H. You contend that phonological change only takes place in borrowings under three conditions, namely: unfamiliar sounds, spellings predominating and the passage of years. But if this is so, how do you account for phonological discrepancies in the same script at the same period? If we look at the El Amarna Tablets, written in Akkadian cuneiform, and using Mercer's version, we find the name Nebma're' (as we've now decided the "t" was unvoiced) in EA1 as Nibmuria, in EA2 as Nimuwaria, EA19 as Nimmuria and in EA26 as Mimmuria. Neferkhepruré' becomes in EA7 Naphururia, EA16 Naphuria and EA41 Huria. These are only a few of the many variants: many more could be quoted for these names. What is more, these variants are used a number of times each, and aren't single occurrences ...

... own against the Libyans, had created a political situation which pertained at the time of the stela's erection. Merenptah was simply stating the truth: Hatti was at peace with Egypt, the rebellious towns of Palestine were subdued, Israel was laid waste etc. This is certainly not a 'slightly strained proposal' and is supported by one of the world's greatly respected Egyptologists. Redford's paper is well worth reading. The Horemheb/Seti issue has been overstated as usual; what I said was that 'the only way we can accommodate both the Amarna synchronisms and Shishak/Ramesses' (the previous paragraph makes it clear that I am referring here to the Talmudic tradition of Solomon's father-in-law) 'is to postulate a period of joint rule between Horemheb and Seti I'. The argument was simply that when a reign (i.e. Ramesses I) intervenes between two other reigns, there can be no possibility of a coregency between the rulers on either side. However, in this case, with Ramesses I only reigning about one and a half years, and with evidence that he ...
