131. The Autumn Meeting [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... it was not so much the actual chronology as the means by which it was derived which was discussed. The hard evidence is obtained in the form of strata uncovered in archaeological digs. The historians of ancient Greece wrote that after the emergence of a high culture in Assyria there were three great empires, those of the Ninos-Assyrians, the Medes ... which has reigned over attempts to identify the Ninos Assyrians has led to stratigraphic inversions. How were these pen and paper chronologies derived? A biblical chronology was openly retained by archaeologists until the late 19th century and biblical chronology was originally based on the belief in a 3rd millennium date for the birth of Abraham. Even after Abraham was discarded as ...

... Heinsohn's work is that the so-called Neo-Assyrians must be identical to the Persians. Heinsohn was forced to that conclusion for a very simple reason: Mesopotamia could provide little or no archaeology for the two centuries during which it was part of the Achaemenid Empire. Indeed the absence of Persian strata is so complete that some modern scholars, most notably Heleen ... the removal of these hiatuses makes the archaeology of Assyria conform precisely to the history of the region which was outlined by the classical authors but could never be confirmed by the archaeologists. Thus, when we remove the 7 centuries between the Akkadians (whose greatest king was named Sargon) and the Mita (nni), (who boasted repeatedly ...
