52. New Paper on Bronze Age Catastrophes [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Late Bronze Age settlement of Santorini is proof of a particular catastrophe: but is there evidence of wider European calamity? A search for precision beyond that currently available is a frequent aspect of archaeological interpretation. Tensions exist as a result of the need to resolve events on a human time-scale using techniques often incapable of producing such accuracy or precision. Dendrochronology, ice-core analysis and tephrochronology, where data-resolution can be constrained either by annual to sub-annual banding or precise isochrones, can make important contributions to tackling the persistent chronological problems in archaeology. This problem is particularly acute when the events being studied are real, or imagined catastrophes (cf. White & Humphreys 1994). Catastrophes be they the ...
53. Isotopic Anomalies in Chronometric Science [Journals] [SIS Review]
... since the measurement of C14 levels in the millennia-long tree-ring record of the famous Bristlecone Pine. These measurements immediately brought into question the major Uniformitarian assumption behind C14 dating, namely that atmospheric C14 levels had remained constant over the period accessible to the Bristlecone Pine recalibration. Although the secular variation of C14 was established beyond serious questioning by the analysis of dendrochronologically dated growth rings, the Uniformitarian assumption soon reasserted itself in another guise: the variation recorded by the Bristlecone Pine was representative of the C14 fluctuation worldwide, and the recalibrated dates were therefore applicable in the widest Context. Variations in Carbon Isotope Abundances The assumptions underlying radiocarbon dating have been more fully reviewed elsewhere, notably by Renfrew (2 ...
54. The Saint and the Miracle [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2001:1 (Apr 2001) Home | Issue Contents The Saint and the Miracle Phillip Clapham Saint David died in around 589AD as a very old man. He therefore lived through Mike Baillie's dendrochronological anomalies between 536-545AD. He established a monastery with a very strict regime. It was infamously harsh, as was the imposed diet, which consisted of water and herbs - such as cabbage and leeks. These are plants that can withstand low temperatures and traditionally come into culinary use during the winter months. This is significant, as low growth episodes would have led to crop failure and reduced yields of other plants. David's first church, a ...

56. The Time Detectives by Brian Fagan (Reviewed) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... form of a downpour that went on for weeks, or even months. Just a thought. See p. 103 for up to date refined C14 dating methodology. See p. 108 for the Younger Dryas Episode (essential reading for catastrophists) - a significant climatic event triggered by an extremely cold blip far more serious than anything re-cognised by dendrochronologists in the historical period. The cold blip was followed, as always, by a very dry period in the Near East, so humans sought out oasis locations - e.g . Jericho. In places such as this agriculture is thought to have begun. More importantly, at the end of the Younger Dryas, when climate returned ...
57. Perilous Planet Earth: Catastrophes and Catastrophism Through the Ages by Trevor Palmer. [Journals] [SIS Review]
... All three new theories weakened the dominance of the gradualist geologists and similar changes happened in evolution with the contributions of Eldridge and Gould, which led to the theory of Punctuated Equilibria, in which long periods of gradual development are interrupted by short periods of sudden change. In section C, Palmer briefly describes radiometric dating methods, radiocarbon dating and dendrochronology, illustrating how these have influenced our concept of age. The need to accommodate the concept of gene maps and the rate of mutation has also forced evolution to evolve. Similarly, the need to accommodate the results of space exploration and super-computer calculations is forcing changes in our model of the solar system. Though, of course, the ...
58. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... orthodox archaeological positions. Some SIS stalwarts are aware of the dilemma and still wish to embrace the spirit of Ages in Chaos and the drama of Velikovsky. The New Chronology has been washed clean of catastrophism but retains its connections with Biblical chronology and numbers. The revisionists are critical of modern scientific dating methods - the Bible takes precedence. However dendrochronology has revealed a series of frost signatures that dovetail nicely into the conventional lines of cultural division. The dates are different but the divisions perfectly match the Early, Middle and Late Bronze eras, which in turn correspond to and accurately mirror the rise and fall of dynasties in the ancient world. In Egypt the boundaries of the Predynastic, ...
59. Predicting the Past (advert) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... for further discussion. Today, the tide has turned somewhat. School children are taught that the extinction of the dinosaurs was due to the crashing to Earth of a comet or an asteroid sixty million years ago. Astronomers have written books about how asteroid and comet impacts destroyed past civilisations and threaten our present one. Experts in the field of dendrochronology have concluded that treering data show steep environmental downturns within historical times and that these events seem to be tied to celestial phenomena. The present work is a summation of Roger Wescott's thoughts regarding mythology, human prehistory, and catastrophism. Not only are the ideas presented in this work incendiary; they are also educative. Beyond its considerable value ...
60. Climate changes [Journals] [SIS Review]
... became warm and drier and the bogs of Europe became overgrown with pine and yew. For a short time the climate was extremely dry and some lakes seem to have shrivelled up altogether. In fact, Swedish peat bogs display evidence of five very dry layers at interesting dates in the historical past, which appear to tie in very nicely with dendrochronology evidence: around 2300BC (the end of EB age catastrophe), 1200BC (the end of LB age catastrophe) and 600BC (a very dry period known from late Assyrian sources). This coincided with Arab bedouin migrations, Scythian and Cimmerian movements in the Caucasus, and the great Celtic penetrations out of the Danube basin. Indeed ...
