101. The Role Of The Nile In Egyptian Chronology [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 2001:2 (Jan 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents The Role Of The Nile In Egyptian Chronology by Lynn E. Rose The 1996 reprint of the 2 nd edition of Kitchen's The Third Intermediate Period in Egypt (1100-650 BC) [1 included a new Preface emphasising a west-Theban graffito that supposedly noted the arrival of the flood on III 3ht 3 in Year 1 of Baienre (= Merneptah). This is the usual reading. Later, an alternative reading by David Rohl will be considered. On p. xlv, Kitchen gives the full graffito [2 as follows: 'Year 1, 3 rd month of Akhet [= Inundation, day 3, (on) this day of the descent made by the water of the great inundation- (under) King of S& N Egypt, Baienre, LPH.' Gardiner [3 puts the reign of Binere/Merneptah from '1224-1214'. (These are 'historical' dates, equivalent to 'astronomical' dates of from -1223 to -1213.) Retrojecting the various ...
102. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Apr. 20, 1961 Dear Rev. Sizemore: I find in our Departmental files a letter from Dr. Velikovsky written on June 13, 1955 requesting objects from the Egyptian collection for Radio Carbon dating. There is also a letter from Professor Robert Pfeiffer, Curator of the Semitic Museum, Harvard University written in behalf of Dr. Velikovsky and also requesting objects. Dr. Hayes, Curator of the Egyptian Department replied to Dr. Pfeiffer that we could possibly provide organic samples datable to the New Kingdom if the request was made in his official capacity as Curator and in behalf of Harvard University as we are not allowed to give material to private individuals. Since I find no reply from Dr. Pfeiffer, I gather that the matter was dropped there. Over the years during which the Radio Carbon method has been developed, all excavations in Egypt have been under the jurisdiction of the Egyptian Government and no objects have been released to foreign institutions with the result that datable material for Radio Carbon tests has been virtually nonexistent.. .outside of Egypt. And ...
103. Hammurabi and the Revised Chronology [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... century, not the twenty-first. Also, the end of the First Babylonian Dynasty in circumstances recalling the end of the Middle Kingdom in Egypt would point to some date close to -1500, or even several decades later. A connecting link was actually found between the First Babylonian Dynasty and the Twelfth Dynasty of Egypt, the great dynasty of the Middle Kingdom. At Platanos on Crete, a seal of the Hammurabi type was discovered in a tomb together with Middle Minoan pottery of a kind associated at other sites with objects of the Twelfth Egyptian Dynasty, 6 more exactly, of its earlier part. 7 This is regarded as proof that these two dynasties were contemporaneous. In the last several decades, however, a series of new discoveries have made a drastic reduction of the time of Hammurabi imperative. Chief among the factors that demand a radical change in the chronology of early Babylonia and that of the entire Middle Eastern complex a chronology that for a long time was regarded as unassailable are the finds of Mari, Nuzi, and Khorsabad. At Mari on the central ...
104. Historical Supplement [The Age of Velikovsky] [The Age of Velikovsky] [Books]
... Ch. 5¦ Ch. 6¦ Ch. 7¦ Ch. 8¦ Ch. 9¦ Appendix¦ Notes The Age of Velikovsky Historical Supplement OEDIPUS OR AKHNATON? In 1960 Velikovsky published Oedipus and Akhnaton which was based on research that was done when he first came to the United States in 1939. This work had been set aside when the clues that eventually led to the publication of Ages in Chaos and Worlds in Collision were discovered. In Oedipus and Akhnaton, Velikovsky identified the legendary character, Oedipus, as the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhnaton and suggested that the so called Oedipus legend was not a legend, but possibly the life-story of Akhnaton as told by the Greeks. This work is almost totally independent of Velikovsky's other books. There is one major connection to Ages in Chaos and perhaps a minor connection to Worlds in Collision the latter being, that, if the equation is valid, it is one more indication that many of the ancient legends have some basis in fact. If the reconstruction of Egyptian history, as presented in Ages in Chaos ( ...
105. What's Opera Doc? [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:1 (May 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents What's Opera Doc? Glass discusses opera at MFA Philip Glass, lecturing at the Museum of Fine Arts, December 4. A well-filled auditorium at the Museum of Fine Arts last Wednesday heard composer Philip Glass comment on his operas, Akhnaten in particular. The theme of the latter being Egyptian, it was left to the Museum's curator for Egyptian art to introduce Glass-- as the main composer since Verdi to gather inspiration around the Nile. The evening did not quite come up to expectations. Contact with Akhnaten's actual performance consisted of some ten slides and no more than a few minutes of taped music, and Glass's high-speed oral presentation left something to be desired, too. Still, there was a lot to be gained from listening to Glass who, after all, is one of today's most important composers, one, moreover, in a pivotal position on the verge of classical, pop and jazz. Known to the movie-going public through scores such as Koyaanisqatsi and more ...
106. The Place of Horemheb in Egyptian History [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Review Vol III No 2 (Autumn 1978) Home¦ Issue Contents The Place of Horemheb in Egyptian History Geoffrey Gammon Geoffrey Gammon has an Honours B.A. in History from London University and is currently studying for a Diploma in Archaeology at the University's Institute of Archaeology. WITH THE PUBLICATION of Ramses II and his Time, Immanuel Velikovsky's "Ages in Chaos" series, devoted to a reconstruction of the ancient history of the Near East between the fall of the Egyptian Middle Kingdom and the conquest of Persia by Alexander of Macedon, is near completion [1. One further volume (or possibly two), covering the Assyrian domination of Western Asia in the 8th and 7th centuries BC and the so-called "Dark Age" of Greece, awaits publication. However, Dr. Velikovsky has helpfully provided a link between Ages in Chaos, Volume I, and the new material by means of a summary published in Kronos earlier this year [2. Here Velikovsky challenges the accepted sequence of rulers and dynasties, according to which Horemheb succeeded Ay as the ...

108. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 15: AWARA AND KNOSOS [Quantavolution Website]
... at Hawara and at Knosos, as well as being religious, administrative and storage centres, were representations of heaven and earth, the cosmos. The same may be true of the Hittite capital of Hattusas. Several features tend to this conclusion. The vocabulary used for the pillar or column supports the idea that columns and colonnades represented paths from earth to sky. A summary of the words connected with pillars may be useful, and will demonstrate the close relationship between the various languages. VOCABULARY The Greek kion may have a link with Egyptian. Kion, column, can also, with slightly different pronunciation [different position of the accent, mean 'going'. The letter k betrays the presence of ka. Greek pyrgos, tower, contains the word pyr, fire, and possibly ka as well. Akkadian durr, tower, resembles the Latin turris, and Latin columna needs no translation. Egyptian has an, light tower, and ucha, pillar. It is reported that in 665 B. C. the Assyrians took from Egyptian Thebes two bronze-coated obelisks. ...
... of antiquity is his assertion that the PRST(2) who led the sea-borne assault on the Egypt of Ramses III were Persians rather than, as has generally been supposed, Philistines. In purely linguistic terms, there is little question that the equation of PRST with Philistines (or Palestinians) causes fewer difficulties than with Persians (or Farsis), since in the former case the t is part of the base, while in the latter it must be interpreted as a suffix. To be sure, Classical (Middle Kingdom) Egyptian(3) had a commonly used nominal t-suffix, and if it had functioned to convert place names into ethnic designations, there would be no problem. Unfortunately, however, it served to mark feminine nouns and pronouns.(4) One way to support the Velikovskyan interpretation here is to note that, in some cases, personal names of non-Egyptian origin were, at least in Hellenistic times, Egyptianised by the addition of a -t. An example is BRNKT for the Macedonian name Berenike.(5) But since all ...
110. In Passing [SIS C&C Review $]
... of the most troublesome Sothic dates has always been that based on the supposed reference to the rising of Sirius in the reign of Sesostris III, from which the chronological benchmark of 1786 BC for the end of the XIIth Dynasty has been calculated. A few years ago it might have sounded over-optimistic to suggest that the British journal Antiquity, stronghold of conventional archaeological thinking, would publish an article recommending the abandonment of the precious Sothic date 1872 BC by a leading Near Eastern archaeologist. But such is the argument of an article entitled "Egyptian and Near Eastern chronology: a dilemma?" (Antiquity 53, March 1979, pp. 6-18) by JAMES MELLAART (Dr Mellaart lectures in Anatolian archaeology at the London Institute of Archaeology, and is best known for his excavation of the neolithic site of Çatal Hüyük.) In developing the arguments for higher dates for Early and Middle Bronze Age Egypt, Mesopotamia, Palestine and Anatolia than those generally accepted, Mellaart concludes that "the astronomical date of 1872 for the 7th year of Sesostris III cannot be upheld any longer ...
