91. Another Look at Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... to prove anything; it is relatively safe to say no interpretation of history requiring so thorough a resetting of the historical stage for proof will ever gain wide acceptance. In the pursuit of evidence to cross-identify historical personages Velikovsky grasps at the most precarious similarities. Such is the case with a certain Zuchru in the Bible with a toponym in the Amarna letters (see Peter James, SIS Workshop, Vol. 5/4 , 1982/83). James insists that a certain Iahzibada in the Amarna letters is the captain of Jehoshaphat (whom Velikovsky identified with Adbu Hepa of the same letters). However, we are not led into a discussion as to why Iahzibada could not ...

... argued on the basis of artistic analogies, was termed "misleading"(10)- yet no real reasons were adduced to invalidate the Eighteenth Dynasty attribution of the objects discussed by him. The solution to the dilemma becomes obvious when the Egyptian dynasties are placed in their correct sequence. The chalices were made as Ricketts deduced, during the Amarna period- the late Eighteenth Dynasty. They continued to be manufactured under the Libyan Dynasty that followed, even while exhibiting the same decline in artistic standards which characterized all Egyptian art in the wake of the civil war and foreign invasion that precipitated the end of the house of Akhnaton. And if they were made, as Tait argued, ...
94. Towards a New Chronology of Ancient Egypt (Review) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... 1971 p. 71) as well as some further historical and linguistic background on this term. Lasken's point on Jashuya in EA 256 line 18 being Josiah is tenuous. Should one suggest that Ayyab of this same letter is Job? His noting the problems with the names Jebus in the Old Testament and Jerusalem/Salem and Urusalim of the Amarna letters is interesting but difficult. Jerusalem appears as Salem in Biblical texts which may be an abbreviated form of the Jerusalem. However, equally justified would be to question its association with Jerusalem. One could argue that the alu-ru-sa-lim of the Amarna letters is not Jerusalem in that it lacks the initial yod. That would suggest urusalem to which ...
95. A further synchronism between Palestine and Egypt [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of Hatti). Mursilis ruled between the times of Suppiluliumas I and Hattusilis III. It was Hattusilis who signed a very well-attested treaty with Ramesses II. Suppiluliumas was the grandfather of Hattusilis and was the king of Hatti who was petitioned by Ankhesenamun, the widow of Tutankhamun, to offer her a son in marriage; he was also an Amarna correspondent (EA 41). According to orthodox Egyptological teaching (Sir Alan Gardiner), Ankhesenamun became a widow 11 years after the fall of Akhenaten. This broadly confirms the postulated 60 year gap between the fall of Akhenaten and the accession of Ramesses II but note that this 60 year gap is likely to be an over-statement of the ...
96. In Support of Gammon [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History III:2 (July 1981) Home | Issue Contents INTERACTION In Support of Gammon Donovan A. Courville The article by Geoffrey Gammon in the April 1979 issue fills the need for additional support of Velikovsky's redating of the Amarna period in the 9th century. I had accepted this correction of traditional views on the basis of the demand resulting from repositioning the exodus and the sacking of Solomon's temple in Egyptian history. Velikovsky's support for this revised setting of the Amarna Period seemed short of being convincing. Hence I was delighted to note the added support provided by Gammon. Gammon's skepticism on the veracity of the proposed eleven-year co-regency between Amenhotep III and Akhnaton ...
97. On the Placement of Haremhab: A Critique of Gammon [Journals] [Kronos]
... great deal of work still needs to be done before such a slender thread, in the form of a very badly damaged statue, can be expected to bind Haremhab securely to the Eighteenth Dynasty as part of a continuous chronological chain. Velikovsky has presented strong arguments in his attempt to show that the time of Haremhab was not that of the Amarna period.(25) One of the principal reasons he gives is that "had Haremhab been a prominent official in the days of el-Amarna, he, like other generals and courtiers, would have had a sepulchral chamber built for him in the necropolis of Akhet-Aton (el-Amarna)".(26) Velikovsky buttresses this statement with a ...
98. The Israelite Conquest of Canaan [Journals] [Aeon]
... another phantom in the "Old-Assyrians" or after -1950. c) The Persian dominance also compromises the "Middle-Assyrians" now dated after the Mitanni. The latter are the Medes controlling Assyria's heartlands from -610 until their defeat by the Persians in -550. Via the Mitanni=Medes of the late 7th century B.C .E . the Amarna period becomes the anchor point for Egypt's chronology. This curious extension of the history of the ancient Near East by ghost empires- taught to every school child today under the names of Early Dynastic Sumerians, Akkadians, Neo-Sumerians and Old Babylonians, is explained by the fact that as early as two thousand years ago, or more, work ...
99. Sins Of The Father [Journals] [Aeon]
... "The man credited with the downfall of the Median Empire was Cyrus the Mardian/Am-ardian, later known as Cyrus the Great...My equation of the Indo-Aryan Mitanni- famous for breeding outstanding horses- with the Indo-Aryan Medes- no less famous for breeding outstanding horses- forced me to look for the equivalent of Cyrus in the Amarna correspondence which covers the final years of the Mitannian Empire. There was only one candidate for that role: Aziru the Martu/Amurru with whom that correspondence is virtually obsessed."  Heinsohn's claim that Cyrus stemmed from the Mardian clan is utterly without foundation, as I documented elsewhere.  In fact, Cyrus ...

... the Baltic lands; also elephant and hippopotamus tusks of probably Syro-Palestinian provenance, and ostrich eggshells. The tools and weapons of bronze recovered are similar to those of Mycenaean, Egyptian and Canaanite manufacture, the jewelry typically Canaanite. Mesopotamian cylinder seals bearing winged griffins and dated to about 1400 BC were among the treasures, also pottery typical of the Amarna period, and a gold scarab of Nefertiti, wife of Akhenaten. The latter artifact has revived speculation that Nefertiti may have reigned alongside Akhenaten on the throne of Egypt (or, as per Julia Samson, been king' in her own right). All the evidence seems to point to a date of the Amarna period for the ...
