From: Proceedings of The Second Seminar of Catastrophism and Ancient History (1985) Home¦ Issue Contents The Problem of Adjusting the Date Limits of the Archaeological Ages to Meet Velikovsky's Revision Donovan A. Courville Introduction It is only recently that the necessity for revising the dates for the archaeological ages has come to the front as a factor in evaluating the feasibility ... intact as conventionally understood. In the discussion that followed, there was divided opinion. When it was pointed out that to prove such a concept would require a re-examination of the archaeology of many Palestine sites, my thinking has produced a modified form of that proposed in my published volumes. The purpose of this revised paper is to (1) analyze the ... have been misevaluated in popular archaeology. Initial correlations of the archaeological evidence with history must be based on incidents of Scripture which provide unique details of such nature as can be observed archaeologically. It may be assumed that Palestine archaeology has been properly correlated with Egyptian history, at least in an approximate manner and at least for the era of dynasties XVIII and later ...

... actually a later wave c.1130 BC, i.e. about 50 years after Ramesses III's defeat of the Sea Peoples. His main reasoning for proposing this unlikely sounding theory is that the archaeological evidence suggests that IIIC1b pottery succeeds Egyptian administration and does not coexist with it, and that Egyptian control lasts until at least Ramesses VI, c.1140 BC. In reality it is ...

A few Israelis would admit some continuity of Iron IIC pottery through the Babylonian period. Archaeologists working in Jordan have for several years dated the end of Iron IIC about 50 years later at c. 539 BC, the beginning of the Persian period. However, they ...

... and in due course "archaic" art developed into "classical" art. This scheme was accepted, and today, with only slight variations, it is the credo of archaeological art. Dörpfeld insisted that the geometric ware ascribed to the first millennium was actually contemporaneous with, and even antecedent to, the Mycenaean art of the second millennium, and that ... detractors. But by that time he had already been completely discredited, and his obstinacy only made him a target for further attacks by younger scholars properly trained in the science of archaeology, who are able at a glance to tell the exact age and provenience of a shard. They have no doubt whatsoever that the Mycenaean Age came to a close before- ... other scholar, and was he wrong? Wrong was their common borrowing of dates for the Mycenaean Age from the Egyptologists. In view of the fact that the later generations of archaeologists followed Furtwangler and not Dorpfeld, it is worthwhile to reproduce the assessment of the latter by one who knew him and his work, herself a great figure in classical studies built ...

... the Geometric Age was interrupted by the arrival of Greek colonists, bringing their own distinctive culture from Corinth and Rhodes and other places in Greece.

... 1786 BC for the end of the XIIth Dynasty has been calculated. A few years ago it might have sounded over-optimistic to suggest that the British journal Antiquity, stronghold of conventional archaeological thinking, would publish an article recommending the abandonment of the precious Sothic date 1872 BC by a leading Near Eastern archaeologist. But such is the argument of an article entitled " ... and Near Eastern chronology: a dilemma?" (Antiquity 53, March 1979, pp. 6-18) by JAMES MELLAART (Dr Mellaart lectures in Anatolian archaeology at the London Institute of Archaeology, and is best known for his excavation of the neolithic site of Çatal Hüyük.)

... both in walking distance of a few hours: a fortified city that fell in a very definite moment of history is a desideratum and a prize that are matchless-- and archaeological fervor sensed that here great discoveries awaited the diggers.

... , the Hyksos period is firmly anchored in the Middle Bronze. Assyrians of the empire period were firmly placed in the Iron Age. How could Heinsohn hope to bridge this enormous archaeological gap? With Heinsohn, stratigraphic evidence comes first. If he was wrong about the Hyksos, Heinsohn said, somewhere in Egypt we should find archaeological indications of Iron Age Assyria ... 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 ... such evidence does exist, an undertone of accusation in Martin's article makes it seem as if Heinsohn is tampering with obvious and unassailable truths. Martin invokes an all-star team of noted archaeologists in an effort to isolate and ridicule Heinsohn's thesis, even though Martin himself disagrees strongly with each of these scholars on one major point or another.
