111. Haremhab: Assyrian Vassal or XVIIIth Dynasty Pharaoh? [Kronos $]
... state of our knowledge of Egyptian history and the possibility that fresh evidence may come to light, it would be foolhardy for anyone to regard the case for or against the alternative chronologies as closed. However, on the basis of such evidence as is currently available, I see no reason to modify my earlier view-- which further research has only strengthened ... Immanuel Velikovsky in his as yet unpublished Assyrian Conquest.(2) The correct placement of Haremhab in the sequence of Egyptian kings and dynasties is crucial to the development of any chronology whose starting point is the radical revision put forward by Velikovsky in Volume I of Ages in Chaos.(3) I am therefore grateful to the editor for this opportunity to ... Lewis M. Greenberg.(1) Both writers commented unfavorably on an article published in the SIS Review (III:2), in which I departed radically from the chronological placement proposed for this pharaoh by Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky in his as yet unpublished Assyrian Conquest.(2) The correct placement of Haremhab in the sequence of Egyptian kings and ...

... . So "the place of the [Egyptian calendar in the seasons" would be quite unknown. Independently of this issue, he called for a radically shortened and rearranged Egyptian chronology. While Velikovsky pegged the third year of Osorkon II to 776 B.C. on the basis of Greek and Chinese chronological calculations,(5) in the conventional scheme, Osorkon's ... . They are: a flood inscription from Egypt, reference to a "celestial phenomenon" in a Chinese poem, and the traditional date of the Olympic Era accepted by Greek chronologists. I will discuss each in turn. In Breasted's Ancient Records of Egypt, we find that in the third year of Pharaoh Osorkon II of the Twenty-second Dynasty, there was ... as we shall see, around September 11 to September 12 (Gregorian). But any discussion of the relation of seasonal phenomena to Egyptian calendar dates would be meaningless without a chronological reference point. The Egyptian civil calendar had no leap year, being fixed at 365 days. As the solar year is nearly a quarter of a day longer, every four ...

... historical ages since then: the archaeologists and historians are quietly living with the problem.

' cultures disappear and in their place are recognisable the remains of powerful empires whose apparent absence is such a puzzle. Tony Rees' message was the important basic proposition that all chronologists should consider very carefully the source and meaning of the numbers they used in the construction of their chronologies.

As its basis we find the dating of Mycenaean pottery in Egyptian New Kingdom contexts, and through the dating of Mycenaean wares the pottery style chronologies of the Late Minoan I and Late Cycladic I sequences are determined. In the early years of radiocarbon dating this archaeological date appeared to be confirmed: radiocarbon estimations were performed on ...

... Metals, Glazing and Man (Harrap, London, 1978), which appeared in SISR III:4, 1979, pp. 81-3.

However, Dayton's own revised time-scale does not always ... up in Tuscany c.750 BC. Aeneas would have been quite an old man by then.

Thus the facts collected by Dayton can be brought into a logical scheme when Velikovsky's dates for the XVIIIth Dynasty, and the Glasgow Chronology's dates for the XIXth and XXth Dynasties, are applied to the relevant finds.

Their work has benefitted not merely from the broad base thereby provided but from the exchange and cross-fertilization of information and ideas which has produced the synthesis of a major revision of the chronologies of the Late Bronze and Early Iron Ages.

Most of these anomalies have already been noted by archaeologists working in their own specialized fields and have thus been addressed in isolation.
