131. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , refers to the date in any year when the sun rises sufficiently late (i .e . is sufficiently distant from the star) for it to be seen very briefly above the horizon before the following light of the sun blots it out. This event occurs once per seasonal year of 365.2422 days. The Egyptians used a calendar year of 360 + 5 days, and are supposed to have been particularly interested in the heliacal rising of the "Dog Star" Sirius (Sothis, or Sepdet), identified with Isis, the goddess of agriculture and fertility. As the difference between the two years is approx. ¼ day, the heliacal rising of Sirius will ...
132. A Review of Wells's Review of Sun, Moon, And Sothis [Journals] [Aeon]
... Contents A Review of Wells's Review of Sun, Moon, And Sothis Lynn E. Rose From Solana Beach, California, writes: In the Journal of Near Eastern Studies, Volume 61, Number 4 (October 2002), pages 311-315, Ronald A. Wells reviewed my book, Sun, Moon, and Sothis: A Study of Calendars and Calendar Reforms in Ancient Egypt (Deerfield Beach Florida, 1999). Wells lists the book as "vol. 11" of the Osiris Series; it is in fact Volume II of that series. This is but the first of many errors in the review. I shall discuss them more or less in the order of their ...
133. Chapter XXIV: the Years of 360 and 365 Days [Books]
... which were divided into twelve months of thirty days each." Krall also argues that the expressions great and little year and their hieroglyphics referred to the years of 365 and 360 days respectively, and adds: - - "If we inquire into the time at which the epagomenes were introduced, we can only fix approximate dates. If the calendars of the Mastabas, complete as they are, do not mention the epagomenes, whereas inscriptions of the period of the Amenamhats refer to them, this can only be due to the circumstance that the epagomenes were only introduced in the meantime, but probably nearer the upper than the lower limit. . . . For the sake of completeness ...
134. Megalithic Circles and Star Charts [Journals] [SIS Review]
... throughout the year at 2300 BC that are no longer seen today from that latitude. Conversely, some stars observed today at that latitude were not seen at 2300 BC. A star chart therefore is a unique presentation of stars at a specific time. There appears to be general agreement that the most likely compilation date for the naksatra constellation' calendar of India occurred in the twenty-fourth to twenty-third century BC . This was the first generated star chart for that cultural region. The naksatra calendar is mentioned in the Rigveda, dated by a number of scholars to that time. In Mesopotamia, there are no significant astronomical or astrological texts dating from the Sumerian period before 2300 ...
135. Ninsianna And Ramesside Star Observations [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the same as the year number. "Invisibilities" include both the day of disappearance and the day of re-appearance but "duration" omits one of these days. IVhen the month is marked with an asterisk, the year is one of 13 months (VIII* = "Second Ulul"). If everything had been normal and the calendar perfectly adjusted, every fifth conjunction would have occurred on (almost) the same calendar date; note, for instance, that the conjunctions marked "A " always occur in Month XI. Note also that events 6 & 14 occur earlier than computed whilst event 8a, 13a and 17 occur later than computed, suggesting orbital irregularities which ...
136. Ancient History Study Group, September 1993 [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... unobtainable in Britain. A few pages of Stenring's numbers and diagrams published in 1952 are available in the British Library. David Roth introduced Gerhard Larsson's The Secret System, 1973 (also in the BL), which follows Stenring's ideas closely. Larsson posits that dates recorded in the Bible were devised in c230BC, using a system of three different calendars: one of 354 days, one of 365 (solar) and one of 365 ¼ days (standard). He proposes not that these individual calendars had been used historically but that the author(s ) of the system manipulated historical datings in such a way that each date would fit one or more calendars - to the day ...
137. Ankylosis in the Chronology of Reconstructed History? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... by the lunar eclipses mentioned in the Almagest" (3 ), and through the Babylonian King List A with three rulers being kings of Babylon and Assyria at the same time. Three lunar eclipses are given for the years -721 and -720. The Ptolemaic Canon, which links our own to the ancient chronology, is built upon the Egyptian Calendar with years of 365 days only. The effect of all this is to fix the chronologies of all nations of the ancient near east for many centuries by the date -763. Because of the method of derivation of this data, it cannot be accepted within the framework of a reconstructed chronology; at least for the present it is impossible ...

Ancient History Study Group Report on the meeting at the home of Clarice Morgan's on 8th September 1990. 7 members were present and I introduced a discussion of the Calendar as well as giving a short report on the Toronto Conference Reconsidering Velikovsky'. My approach to the Calendar is to begin with the 20th century and work backwards. This has been quite hard to do, as most books which give more than a cursory glance at how dates are established are only available in specialist libraries. However, ...

140. Sothic Dating and Historical Reconstructions [Articles]
... well up river from, say, Alexandria. There in the precincts of a temple of Sesostris II, already deceased, these various documents were found. It's a large collection of papyri. Some of these have various dates on them. Now the dates are not always completely straightforward; sometimes it will be a date given in the Egyptian calendar, but it doesn't say what the Moon is doing. Sometimes the name of the king is missing. In fact, that is usually the case, but one can put these pieces together and make an effort to determine the time when Sesostris II would have lived and his successor Sesostris III, and Amenemhat III. The latter two ...
