101. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Baillie is proceeding one stage at a time and for the moment has only advocated a single cosmic event affecting frost signatures, in the 530s AD. Once this is popularised the idea will probably be expanded to include earlier frost signatures including that of 1628BC. Thera should not be used as a yardstick to criticise the overall picture presented by dendrochronology as Baillie is not a historian and is only dealing in the big lumps or blocks of chronology. He provides a perfect match for the Late Bronze period as a whole and it fits snugly between 1628 and 1159-30BC = the Hyksos era of roughly 150 years+ dynasty 18+ most of dynasty 19. It is no accident that the ...
102. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , propounded in his book Catastrophe, that around 1500 years ago Java was split in two by an almighty eruption of Krakatoa, which sent so much dust into the atmosphere that it caused a world wide catastrophic climatic event which resulted in mass displacement of peoples, the spread of the Black Death and the European Dark Ages. Keys noted that dendrochronologist Mike Baillie had found a major disturbance of tree rings in the 6th century, which indicated frost damage even in summer. This ties in with Roman accounts from Constantinople of bizarre weather around 535/536, a Japanese food shortage in 540 and Chinese records. Greenland ice cores appear to indicate a massive eruption at that time, and ...
103. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... date down to the next available position (p . 15 n. 55 and see C&CR 1999:2 p. 35 where I wrongly stated that there were to be three articles in Thijs' series - currently at No. 5!). Dodson extends his dates to the pre-Ramesses II period by a rash reliance on a dendrochronological date of c. 1300 BC from the Uluburun (southern Turkish coast) shipwreck (p . 15). The wreckage included a scarab of Nefertiti, Akhenaten's wife, which is assumed to be scrap and to indicate that Akhenaten's reign was fairly recently ended, or at least that it was beyond his Yr. 5 when Nefertiti adopted ...
104. The Causal Source for the Climatic Changes at 2300 BC [Journals] [SIS Review]
... However, there is the question of whether an eruption was the cause of the Arctic triggering, or if the eruption or eruptions were caused by crustal stress arising from the glacial buildup following the Arctic triggering by something else. A recent paper by Baillie and Munro  appears to support a possible major event about 2340BC, based on dendrochronological (tree-ring) measurements. They attempted to obtain a precise dating of volcanic events by their effect on climate, which affects tree growth (i .e . narrowness of tree rings). They found that a number of major volcanic events coincided with established dates from other sources. An intriguing by-product of their investigations was the identification of ...
105. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that wealthy Egyptians would live in luxury for much longer than the peasants, Rohl said that only reasonably well-to-do people got buried in cemeteries. Most deaths occurred around 31/32, tending to support using a lower average age per generation. Porter also took this opportunity to update the audience briefly on his work on scientific dating methods. Regarding dendrochronology, he said that despite all the claims being made about it, no recent continuous long tree ring chronology has yet been published. The only one published has a 70 year mistake in it. Regarding ice cores, an ash layer was found in one which dated to 1620BC but an analysis of the material proved that it did not ...

107. Geomagnetic Effects of an Earthwide Event in 2300BC [Journals] [SIS Review]
... correlation has been established between past radiocarbon level and geomagnetic field strength . Because of the above relationship, I looked for a negative transient in the atmospheric radiocarbon level around 2300 BC to obtain support for a positive geomagnetic transient occurring at that time. This transient would be detected by measurements of the radiocarbon levels in tree rings. Dendrochronological measurements are used to correct basic radiocarbon measurements but they can also be used to show short term atmospheric radiocarbon variations in the past. Very satisfyingly, there is a noticeable negative transient in radiocarbon level beginning right around 2300 BC, summarised by Johnston and supported by Seuss, as shown in Figure 12 . Derricourt [41 ...
108. New Archaeological Dates for the Israelite Conquest Part I [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... found in tombs belonging to the supposedly contemporaneous Twelfth Dynasty. It also ignores stylistic differences and developments in tomb reliefs and inscriptions which indicate that the Old and Middle Kingdoms were not contemporaneous.21 And it must reject not only the evidence from radiocarbon dates (which generally support the conventional chronology for Egyptian dynasties) but also the much more accurate dendrochronological (tree-ring dating) system which has been used to correct and improve the radiocarbon dates.22 These difficulties are significant enough to cause most archaeologists and Egyptologists to reject Courville and Vaninger's chronology. But in addition, their system has internal problems with its correlations between archaeology and the Bible for periods after the conquest. As we have already ...
109. Science, Technology and the Chronology of the Ancient World [Journals] [Aeon]
... metallurgy and the working of stone were invented in Egypt and Mesopotamia, spreading from there to Europe via Anatolia and the Aegean. In this view, the Late Neolithic of western, northern, and central Europe was contemporary with the Early Bronze Age of the Aegean and the Near East. However, the discovery and application of radiocarbon dating and dendrochronology in the period from 1950 to 1970 led to the collapse of this diffusionist theory, as the new findings eventually convinced historians that copper metallurgy made its first appearance in central Europe, and that stone monuments were being constructed in northwestern Europe and in Malta before Egypt.  Ginenthal discusses the view of the philosopher, Thomas Kuhn ...
110. Homer in the Baltic [Journals] [Aeon]
... any reliable information regarding the author, or authors, of the poems had been lost before classical times, showing that they in fact belonged to a "barbaric" European civilization, very far from the Aegean, as had been noticed by authoritative scholars, such as Stuart Piggott in his Ancient Europe. Moreover, radiocarbon dating, corrected through dendrochronology, has recently questioned the dogma of the eastern origin of European civilization. Colin Renfrew describes the consequences for traditional chronology: "These changes bring with them a whole series of alarming reversals in chronological relationships. The megalithic tombs of western Europe now become older than the pyramids or the round tombs of Crete, their supposed predecessors. The ...
