221. It's Time to Get Serious About Manetho [Journals] [SIS Review]
... throughout the world, particularly in and around the Middle East. Retired through ill health, he is a research consultant for a leading Australian genealogical service organisation. He has researched a wide range of subjects related to the history of Egypt and is currently fine-tuninga 1500 page study on the chonology of Egypt and contemporary civilisations. Summary The kinglists of Egyptian priest Manetho in c. -260 represent the foundation plank of all reconstruction of that nation's history. Are the chronological problems identified today the result of errors on his part or have modern scholars misread his work from the start? Setting the Stage On about July 18th 1998, the world was entitled to celebrate the bicentenary of Egyptology au Napoleon ...
222. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Finkelstein is pushing this process further and suggesting that the Philistine settlement proper (with IIIC1b pottery) is actually a later wave c.1130 BC, i.e . about 50 years after Ramesses III's defeat of the Sea Peoples. His main reasoning for proposing this unlikely sounding theory is that the archaeological evidence suggests that IIIC1b pottery succeeds Egyptian administration and does not coexist with it, and that Egyptian control lasts until at least Ramesses VI, c.1140 BC. In reality it is debatable whether Egyptian control really lasted that late. Others [e .g . Bryant Wood, BAR 17:6 p. 51] have accepted that IIIC1b pottery follows Egyptian control at ...
... Chapter XIX The Personification of Stars- the Temple of Isis at Denderah WE have now to pass from the building ceremonials and a general consideration of the temples at Karnak, to the worships to which the various temples were dedicated. And to do this we must face the problems of Egyptian mythology, so far as the names and origins of the various gods and goddesses are concerned. Plan of Denderah (Mariette) There is ample evidence that each temple was sacred to some god or goddess, although in many cases the name of the patron divinity has been lost. Fortunately, at Denderah the patron divinities are well known, so it will be well to begin with the ...
224. The Still-Lost City of Avaris: The Capital and Stronghold of the Hebrew Pharaohs (Hyksos) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... site as Avaris through his eyes, though others at the time thought he was wrong and that this was just a cemetery. His find revealed that the graves discovered there were similar to those of the XIIth Dynasty.3 This demonstrates that whether or not Tell-el-Yehudiyeh was Avaris, finding Hyksos graves there in the Middle Kingdom controls the chronology of Egyptian history, and this in and of itself is a very important piece of historical evidence. He affirmatively mentions that these Semitic graves were like the ones built in the XIIth Dynasty. Even in contemporary society burials are an extremely personalized and emotionally charged inheritance. Each religious sect has its own piece of land for burials. Baines and Malek ...
225. The Age of Moses [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... time of catastrophic upheaval in the cradle of civilization. Although Biblical documentation of this era is complete, none of the literature or annals of the people and nations neighboring the Israelites seem to confirm this account. The nineteenth century "Age of Enlightenment" produced a frenzy of archaeological activity which resulted in translation of many documents and inscriptions of the Egyptian and Middle eastern people. From these fragmentary records, historians and Egyptologists put together a listing of Egyptian kings, arranged in dynasties and couched in a chronology that left no room for the Biblical patriarchs and their deeds. The Exodus was finally placed at the time of Ramesses II, a powerful king of the 19th Dynasty. The incongruity ...
226. The Calendar [Journals] [Aeon]
... present reckoning, this event occurred on the night of March 23rd. [1 ] My Present Position However, amongst the evidence available to prove his point, Velikovsky unfortunately missed or failed to appreciate some very vital pieces of information. The most famous of these is the comment that only five days were added to the original 360 in the Egyptian Calendar [2 ] and that in most cultures these days were considered unlucky. When conventional historians or astronomers write about the calendar situations in ancient times they invariably denigrate the observational and mathematical skills of whatever nation is under scrutiny. An excellent opening example comes from a copy of a journal article: "The first year of three hundred ...
227. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and summarised much of the new material which had come to light since the publication of Ages in Chaos in 1952 to support the main argument of that book that the Exodus and the Conquest of Canaan should be synchronised with the end of the Middle Kingdom in Egypt and of the Middle Bronze Age in Palestine, and that the dates of the Egyptian Eighteenth Dynasty should be lowered by 500 years, making it contemporary with the first two hundred years of the Israelite monarchy. In particular, the paper mentioned the tabulation of simultaneous destructions in the Middle East by CLAUDE SCHAEFFER in his Stratigraphie Comparée... and his confirmation that such catastrophes brought major civilisations to an end; the assignment ...
228. The Hittites in Israel [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... king of Israel: For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, "Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us." Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life (2 Kings 7:6-7). Velikovsky comments, in the light of his Revised Chronology: "We know ...
229. The Original Star of Dawn [Articles]
... in which different tribes entertained different convictions. The amalgamation of the two beliefs should not even be seen as the result of confusion since, as I have tried to demonstrate, both beliefs would have reflected the same cosmic event and, in fact, both beliefs would have been considered to be correct. But let us now pass on to Egyptian mythology to see whether this can throw any light on the subject. As is well known, Egyptian rites of the dead attempted to assimilate the deceased pharaoh to Osiris. In the text of Unas it is told that "the king's soul, provided with its words of power, flew with its wings to heaven, and opened' ...
230. When Venus Was A Comet [Journals] [Kronos]
... not-so-distant past. Thus the ancient sources unanimously tell of a former age in which the original sun god was enclosed in a gigantic celestial band which bears all the earmarks of having been cometary in nature. According to our hypothesis, it was this celestial scenario which was commemorated by the universal symbol of the enclosed sun, most familiar as the Egyptian Aten (o ). There were, however, more surprises in store. A curious anomaly kept reappearing at each stage of the investigation. This was the intimate association of the planet Venus to symbols traditionally linked with comets- e.g ., the serpent-dragon, hair-star, bearded star, etc. The question arose as to ...
