81. Chaos and Creation by Alfred de Grazia [Books] [de Grazia books]
... a set of problems is to be found anywhere in the realms of science and scholarship. Every discipline is implicated in the theory of ancient catastrophes - psychology, sociology, linguistics, archaeology, biology, physics, chemistry, astronomy, and geology, together with their many subdivisions down to special and new sciences, such as plasma physics, dendrochronology, and mega-vitamin therapy [1 ]. It has something to say about "the Jupiter Effect," "the Ion Effect," and "the Bermuda Triangle," not to mention "Ancient Astronauts," and the hominids of Olduvai Gorge. Every bite of the archaeologist's spade, every oceanographer's deep coring of the sea bottom ...

... IVR IV, corroborates the longer sequence of C. W. Ferguson back to 3435 BC. Sorensen's impressive critique of the original bristlecone pine chronology appears to have been seriously undermined in the year it appeared. See also LaMarche, Jr. and Hirschboeck in Nature 307, 12 January 1984, pp. 121-126, for a good bibliography on dendrochronology. Finally, I do not enjoy pointing out all these problems; but their existence needs to be made known. If I could solve them I would. My collaboration with V. J. Slabinski began in 1979 as a constructive attempt to solve problems. I would really prefer that the invocation of wild motions and the sequence of ...

... 1800 BC or 3800 BP on that chart, reflecting the approximate 500 year correction between radiocarbon and calendar years. As in the case of the archaeological evidence presented in my earlier article, all of the radiocarbon data expressed here is given as calendar year dates, either obtained directly from the sources of information, or derived from radiocarbon dates using dendrochronologic conversion tables based on the generally accepted conventions of a 5568 year carbon-14 isotope half-life, and with AD 1950 as the zero time reference [8 ]. The Climatological Scenario at 2300 BC Based on the palaeoclimatological evidence that is available to us at the present time, a number of investigators have attempted to establish a climatic scenario before and ...

... also the time of the great Justinian plague which decimated the population of the Mediterranean region, killing up to 90% according to some estimates (a major factor facilitating the Arab expansion some three generations later). Further indication of a severe climatic crisis around the year 540AD, due possibly to cometary effects, is found also in the Irish dendrochronological record [6 ]. New Zealand Maori legends From New Zealand two arguments come: first we have the Maori legends that, several centuries ago, fire came from the sky, burned most of the forests and killed the Moa birds (the Maori adamantly reject western scholars' opinion that over-hunting was the reason for the Moas' disappearance ...

85. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... fewer years had actually passed than suggested by the difference in dates. The history of the Jews shows centuries of darkness and discontinuity that support the thesis. For the Carolingian period, historians find only written sources, with no supporting archaeology. The paper also set out objections to the recent scientific' dating methods, such as radiocarbon dating and dendrochronology. Niemitz finally offers answers to the three key questions: 1. how was it possible to insert 300 years into history? 2. why was this done? and 3. how can the problem be exposed to a wider audience for discussion without being labelled a von Daniken of the Middle Ages'? Clark told us that the ...

... our climate have become clearer (as also mentioned in C&CW 2005:1 , pp. 16-17). Although not spelt out in the Independent, this climate effect links to the sudden dip in the radiocarbon calibration curve from about 850-750 BC (but, as noted above, at least a century later due to probable errors in dendrochronology). It is cosmic rays that generate C14 in the upper atmosphere and if they increase (due to weak solar activity letting them through) then radiocarbon increases and the radiocarbon calibration curve takes a dip (see fig. 1). I don't think this does anything earth-shattering to help revised chronology but, if this theory is correct ...

... was due to drought. His theory was later given added credibility by an article in Antiquity [33], the authors of which included leading climatologists. It has also recently been taken up by Mike Baillie [34]. Baillie's interest stemmed from a series of 20 unusually narrow tree rings in his Irish bog oaks dated 1159-1140 BC in dendrochronology years. The 1159 BC event in NW Europe has been neatly tied scientifically and archaeologically to the third major eruption of the Icelandic volcano Hekla [35]. Whilst it is proven that the end of the Scottish Bronze Age was due to Hekla, it is not yet proven that the Near Eastern events were related, but it does ...

... hang on the strength of any single radiocarbon measurement; it is built on the cumulative clustering of a very large number of measurements around a particular point on the time track. As a point of information, all of my radiocarbon data is expressed as calendar year dates, either obtained directly from my information sources or derived from radiocarbon dates using dendrochronologic conversion tables based on the generally accepted conventions of a 5568 year carbon-14 isotope half-life, and AD 1950 as the zero time reference [1 ].

... to a longer record, using the core drilled many years earlier at Camp Century. A prominent peak stood out at 1390 50 B.C . With no other comparable peak within hundreds of years on either side, they identified it as the signature of the Thera eruption.60 This was in 1980. Then it was the turn of dendrochronologists in the United States. Workers at the University of Arizona have compiled overlapping bristlecone pine chronologies at several sites in southwestern states, going back thousands of years. Trees growing under marginal conditions are most sensitive to climatic variations. Bristlecone pines grow at high elevations in the mountains. Trees from the lower treeline are more sensitive to drought; ...
