41. Pot Pourri [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , London, 1999), the consequences were so far-reaching the event should be considered the transition point between the ancient and modern worlds. For Mike Baillie (Exodus to Arthur: Catastrophic Encounters with Comets, Batsford, London, 1999), it was the latest of several such catastrophes which have been revealed by the new science of tree-ring dendrochronology. Baillie's tree-ring records, when cross-referenced with ice core samples, indicate worldwide climatic events around 4370 BC, 3190 BC, 2454/45 BC, 1628 BC (the Exodus' event), 1159 BC (the Troy' event), 207 BC, 44 BC, and AD 540 (the Merlin' event). It ...
42. Catastrophes in the period 5th cent. BC to 14th cent. AD [Journals] [SIS Review]
... :1 ) ends, I would reiterate my C&C Review (XVIII, 1991) conclusion with regard to catastrophes between the 5th and 12th centuries AD. If the theory (of Clube & Napier) requires them, the theory is wrong'. Since 1994, Baillie's A Slice Through Time has been published [1 ] and dendrochronology may actually support Clube and Napier. Baillie [2 ] has isolated a tree ring frost signature at 536-8 AD - unarguable evidence for a dust veil event .. . during the lifetime of the much maligned Gildas [3 ]. Clube and Napier interpreted Gildas's talk of death and destruction as a description of a catastrophe. However, ...

... be the ones best corroborated by coral growth bands. Both are based on comparison of carbon-14 to carbon-12 ratios. Nevertheless, pre-1950 to the 1700's coral growth bands from Bermuda and the Florida Keys are in stark contradiction to those of tree rings for the same period.36 That is, we now have another climate chronology that contradicts that of dendrochronology! Therefore, the period assigned to frost rings of Irish bog oaks and European trees as well as to bristlecone pines may be off by a few hundred years. In view of this evidence, this is not an unreasonable probability. Thus, the narrow ring timeline would then be in agreement with Velikovsky's chronology. The varve record undeniably ...

... triggered by comet Encke (or a near relative) colliding, or nearly colliding, with the sun, rather than with any individual planet. Michael Reade, Checkendon, Oxfordshire Reply to Baillie I would like to reply to Prof. Mike Baillie's letter in C&C Workshop 1995:1 (p . 38). The additional local dendrochronologies which he mentions do reinforce the younger end of the Irish BC chronology but they do nothing to improve the low t-values linking Ireland to Carlisle and Carlisle to Southwark (which then links back to the AD Irish chronology). This can be seen by adding the new local chronologies to Baillie's diagram on p. 17 of JACF 4. ...

Some calibrated C14 results from Tell el-Amarna [1 ] give good agreement with the historical dates for Akhenaten ( ...
46. Challenges to Evolutionary Gradualism [Books]
... , and so results will depend on the concentration of carbon-14 in the atmosphere when the animal or plant was alive (a likely variable), as well as on the decay of carbon-14 to nitrogen-14 in the tissues after death . Radiocarbon dates for the most recent few thousand years have been calibrated by association with tree-ring dating (dendrochronology) [55,56], but even then some have argued that problems persist . The radiocarbon time-scale over the past 30,000 years has been calibrated against the uranium-thorium ages of Barbados corals: the three youngest specimens used were within the range of tree-ring calibration and there was good agreement between the radiocarbon dates adjusted ...
47. The Homeric Question [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , 1984 p. 1. 40. This proposal is a research hypothesis which calls for careful scrutiny. While my revised date for the Homeric age rests entirely on Greek written documents and archaeological evidence, the conclusion with regard to revising Greek Bronze Age chronology is still highly speculative. In particular, more reliable scientific dating methods, such as dendrochronology, could easily prove all arguments brought forward for a fundamental revision of Bronze Age chronology wrong. If it can be convincingly disproved, I will be the first to accept the inevitable outcome and drop my claims. If, on the other hand, it cannot be invalidated by convincing data, a re-assessment of Gunnar Heinsohn's proposed revision of ...
48. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... on to say, as already mentioned above (but it is worth repeating), at the present stage of research, it seems wise not to mix historical with radiocarbon chronology, but to use them in opposition to each other until such time as the phenomenon of divergence can be better understood and explained. ' 7) Bietak challenges Kuniholm's dendrochronology, noting that matches are claimed between different tree species living in different meteorological areas, and that the minimal published data does not allow the dendrochronology to be checked (cols. 221-222). The area where I feel that Bietak does not go far enough is his own dating of the town area at Daba. He still insists that ...

... atlases, it is a minor Hittite site in Anatolia destroyed at the end of the Late Bronze Age and recently submerged by one of the new Euphrates dams. The latest excavation report Tille Hoyuk 4 (G . Summers, British Institute of Archaeology, Ankara 1993) includes an appendix by P. Kuniholm (pp. 179-190) on the dendrochronology of the oak timbers used in the construction of a gateway. From these timbers a local sequence of ring thicknesses was compiled covering about 200 years prior to the final rebuilding of the gateway (p . 186). Quite a lot of the timbers had final rings close to the end of the sequence and so this was reasonably taken ...
