... matter, the juggling of dates is not something that Sieff should balk at. Revisionists of ancient Near Eastern history have been juggling dates since Isaac Newton set the trend with his Chronologies of Ancient Kingdoms Amended. All that I am willing to state in this respect is that the date of c. 2300 B.C. for the end of the Early Bronze does ... for these ages, I can claim that my acceptance of Bab edh-Dhra' and its environs as the ruins of the biblical Pentapolis does not fall afoul of Bimson's scheme. Conventional chronology, on the other hand, locates the Exodus during the Late Bronze Age, which is believed to have lasted from 1550 to 1200 B.C. According to conventional wisdom, the ... and Schaub's suggested identification of Bab edh-Dhra' and the nearby ruins can be made to fit this scheme as well. While I am not at all personally satisfied with the conventional chronological sequence, the many conflicting reconstructions of ancient history that have mushroomed since Immanuel Velikovsky penned his Ages in Chaos have not done much in settling the issue. As matters now stand ...

The SIS has been at the forefront of this debate, with new research and a surprising range of competing alternative chronologies.

There is some conflict between the two, and this is noted, but the fundamental argument is that the chronologies, especially those based on pottery, are inflated. Chronological anomalies are shown up for all areas, with a consistent bias to higher dates and to the creation of artificial "dark ages". This will be a familiar argument to ...

... shows an admittedly speculative reconstruction of the Bubastis temple, in which it appears that Osorkon I added a Forecourt to Osorkon II's Festival Court- obviously the wrong way round on previous chronologies.

At the same time, we mentioned that this lowering of the date of the el-Amarna letters, within a revised model, was demanded by "several chronological and other considerations", which we promised to deal with at length in another place: the two papers in this issue dealing with the "two Jehorams" are in fulfilment ...
