31. Are the Peleset Philistines or Persians? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... .C . and is immune to any further alterations in excess of about a decade. This concept was challenged by Immanuel Velikovsky in the mid 1950's in his Ages in Chaos. In this work he proposed alternate settings in the history of Egypt for the incidents of the exodus, the sacking of Solomon's temple, and the era of the Amarna Period. These altered placements called for a necessary chronological and historical abbreviation of traditional views by some 500 years. Many, including the writer, recognized in these proposals a possible answer to the conflict of opinions about the setting of the exodus in the background of either the 19th or 20th Egyptian dynasty. Serious objections have been raised to ...
32. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... working for the Society, Bernard has been taking a well earned rest, so we were particularly happy to have been able to persuade him to present his meticulously considered ideas on an area of chronology which has proved to be a stumbling block for many a revisionist. Bernard Newgrosh kicked off proceedings with The Ashuruballit Problem'. Among the el Amarna tablets were two letters, Nos. 15 and 16, from an Assyrian king who called himself Ashuruballit. In No. 16, Ashuruballit, while asking for gold to be sent, refers to Ashur-nadin-ahhe as my ancestor'. From this letter, Ashuruballit' is conventionally considered to be either the Assyrian king who ruled before 1430BC, ...
33. Chronological Problems in the Archaeology of the Hittites [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and an intermediate stage known best from the cemetery of Hammam cover the Early and Middle Bronze Ages down to around 1700 BC (conventional chronology) and need not concern us here . The following "Middle" and "Late Hittite" periods were documented by building activities on the mound and from the cemeteries, principally those of Amarna (distinct, of course, from the famous site in Egypt) and Yunus respectively. The Amarna "Middle Hittite" burials were exclusively inhumations, accompanied by grave-goods including bronze weapons. The pottery of the Amarna period continued alongside Yunus ware for a while in the Yunus "Late Hittite" period, the main difference being the change ...

35. The Body in Tomb KV55 [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... , with one part near the entrance suggesting it had been used as a sledge to drag items to the surface. To the right of centre was a coffin, assumed by the finders (partly because of their preconceptions, perhaps) to be that of Tiye. The coffin was fairly short, of standard pattern but decorated in the distinctive Amarna style. The fit between head and body was poor, and it has been suggested that it was originally a good fit but was subsequently sawn off before being reattached. The face panel had been violently ripped off in what could be interpreted as an act of ritual desecration or murder of the person's spirit. The cartouche identifying the occupant ...
36. Hittites and Phrygians [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the various Syrian vassal states are known by entirely different names, Hurrian rather than Semitic. Only Carchemish and the towns of the Tyanitis, remain the same. It is generally believed the Hittite texts reveal an actual Hurrian population in occupation of Syria, whereas the Assyrians clearly encountered Semites (Aramaeans and related groups). However, the el Amarna tablets also indicate a Hurrian population occupying Palestine at precisely the same period. This Velikovsky has attributed to an influx of Carian Phoenicians, suggesting a process of Hurrianization rather than a large-scale migration of Hurrians (Carians). Accepting for the moment that the occurrence of Hurrian names in itself does not indicate ethnic affiliation, therefore, such Hurrianization ...

38. Cosmic Catastrophism [Journals] [Aeon]
... However, Velikovsky's arguments and evidence have not persuaded the vast majority of specialists in various fields of study relating to the ancient Near East. His interpretations of ancient texts are especially questionable. For example, there are a number of letters written on clay in Akkadian (the language of the ancient Babylonians and Assyrians) that were found at El Amarna in Egypt in the nineteenth century. These Amarna letters, as they are called, were written mainly to the Egyptian pharaohs Amenhotep III and Akhenaton. As just mentioned, Velikovsky synchronizes the reigns of these two pharaohs with those of the mid-ninth-century-B.C . rulers of Judah, Israel, and Assyria. The people, places, and ...

... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:2 (Sep 2001) Home | Issue Contents Key figures of the Amarna period Thutmose 3 A great warrior, often called The Napoleon of Egypt', he campaigned extensively in Asia and received tribute from a wide variety of places. He reigned a little over 50 years. Conventionally dated in the mid-15th century BCE, the New Chronology places his reign from late in the 12th century to the start of the 11th century. Amenhotep 2 A son of Thutmose 3, he was appointed heir shortly before his father's death. He apparently combined physical and military skill with cruelty towards his enemies. He campaigned several times against Mitanni. He reigned ...
