... the bacteria that cause decay by complete immersion in the acidic water of peat bogs. The oak trees of Ireland and Germany alone seem to be the only common trees growing near to human settlements where inclusion in dwellings enables a chronological record to be established. (The Redwoods and the Bristlecone Pine have not been found on archaeological sites). Dendrochronology would be more useful if tree ring sequences could be established from samples found on the sites of human habitation such as in roof beams, etc, using common species growing locally, representing civilisations around the world. But hopefully this will come in time. David A. Slade, Tenerife, Canary Islands Subscription Renewals are due. Please ...

112. Letters [Journals] [Pensee]
... , of the University of Kentucky and former editor of Bat Research News, there have been core samplings and analyses of guano deposits. Unfortunately, since bat guano is quarried like a mineral resource, it may be too late in some areas to exploit the radiocarbon age-dating technique by core samplings of these cave deposits. As a supplemental method to dendrochronology, it (cacochronology?) would in effect aid in the characterization of seasonal variations. In brief, a program of core samplings on guano deposits, of sufficient depth and including fossilized eolites, should be comparable to that involving tree-rings. Stratification of the deposits, it is conjectured, should show climatic changes in temperature and humidity, ...

... a specific problem or area of the ancient Near East. Some of the more prominent chapters concern the Greek Dark Ages; "Redating the Hittite Empire;" "Biblical Archaeology Without Egypt;" "Empty Years in Nubian History" as well as two chapters on Mesopotamian chronology. James' book concludes with several appendices on "Radiocarbon and Dendrochronology," "Greek and Roman Theories on Ancient Chronology," "The Venus Tablets of Ammizaduga" and "Synchronisms between Egypt, Mesopotamia and the Hittites during the Late Bronze Age." At over 400 pages, which includes Notes, Bibliography and Index, this book will make a valuable addition to the library of all would-be chronological ...

... new celestial hazard is one of persistent meteor showers, frequent fireballs, errant Tunguska-like impactors and even full blown multi-Tunguska-like storms, representing the armageddon of old. The physical links with the Earth are such that a detailed global incidence of Tunguska-like events during the late Pleistocene and Holocene may now be in prospect. Such a pattern, tied to the dendrochronological timescale, is evidently the catastrophic framework of the future against which our cultural history will eventually be compared. It is this comparison that will presumably lead to the unification of our theological, mythological and cosmological inheritances which was the probable mainspring of Velikovsky's agenda.

115. Radiocarbon Dating and Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... dead. The rings in the wood from that older tree can in turn be matched with those from even older ones, thus establishing a sequence which can be extended as far back as wood is available from earlier periods (Fig a). The resulting dates are expressed in solar or calendar years, and the dating method is known as dendrochronology. Until 1955, no trees very much older than 2000 years were known. However, Edmund Schulman of the University of Arizona then recognised that the long-lived Pinus aristata or Californian bristlecone pine could be used to extend the tree-ring sequence even further. The estimated age of the oldest living bristlecone pine is 4,900 years, while the ...

... recent arrival from Jupiter. All of this is possible, and dealt with in Chaos and Creation and Solaria Binaria. Scientific opinion has slowly liberalized in respect to new models. By 1972 a scientist might write offhandedly in Nature magazine that "major reorganizations of the solar system are no longer regarded as ridiculous."[13] Recently, dendrochronologists, historians, meteorologists, radiocarbon dating specialists, and astronomers combined in a most unusual enterprise. They delivered a blow to the theory of the constant Sun. John A. Eddy of the National Center for Atmospheric Research conveyed the message: "We've shattered the Principle of Uniformitarianism for the Sun."[14] He presented evidence ...

... .), The New Solar Physics. AAAS Selected Symposium 17 (Boulder, CO: 1978), pp. 11-33] . The climatic and related evidence cited by Velikovsky is consistent with variations in solar activity. A. E. Douglass, an astronomer at the turn of the century, founded the study of tree rings, or dendrochronology, in his quest to discover clues to the history of the Sun in trees. Using Giant Redwoods (Sequoia) of California, Douglass developed a continuous sequence of rings going back to the end of the 14th century B.C . Thus, while not long enough to embrace the Earth-Venus events, it covers the Earth-Mars period. ...

The next meeting was arranged for 12th March. Ancient History Study Group March 1994 10 people met at David Roth's house on 12th March 1994. Bob Porter started with a chat about dendrochronology in Anatolia, with reference to a Hittite site next to the Euphrates, Tel Huyuk. Before building a dam led to the site being drowned, it was studied by Somers of the British Institute of Archaeology at Ankara. The timber used to build a gate was oak and had a 200 year sequence, which was matched to an ...

... . Advocates of southern origins are hoping to get back to Iraq and find evidence of even earlier stages at Uruk, but meanwhile perhaps they should read the work of John Dayton. Mycenaean Problems (Current World Archaeology, No. 6, Jul/Aug 2004, p. 10 and pp. 22-31; Fortean Times, October 2004) Dendrochronology and calibrated carbon dating, performed on burned timbers from Assiros Toumba in central Macedonia, have pushed the date of the end of the Mycenaean Palatial period back more than 50 years to before 1270 BC. This is the first absolute date independent of Egyptian chronology and won't be pleasing to some chronologists, although it matches the date given by ...
