121. On Sothic Dating: Some Preliminary Remarks [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VI No. 1 (Fall 1980) Home | Issue Contents On Sothic Dating: Some Preliminary Remarks Lewis M. Greenberg The conventional reconstruction of Egyptian history is based on the assumption that the Egyptians regulated their calendar according to the heliacal rising of the star Sothis ( Spdt in Egyptian), or Sirius. This is known as Sothic dating, and it has become the pillar of support for reckoning the absolute chronology of ancient Egypt. In the words of Montet: "Were it not for the dates determined by the Sothic Cycle which provide a few fixed points of reference, Egyptian chronology would be a very uncertain field." The application of ...
... Chapter XIII The Egyptian Heavens the Zodiacs of Dexderah WE can readily understand that in the very beginning of observations in all countries, the moment man began to observe anything, he took note of the stars, and as soon as he began to talk about them he must have started by defining, in some way or other, the particular stars he meant. Observers would first consider the brightest stars, and separate them from the dimmer ones; they would then discuss the stars which never set, and separate them from those which did rise and set; then they would take the most striking configurations, whether large or small. They would naturally, in a Northern clime ...
123. Chapter II. The First Glimpses of Egyptian Astronomy [Books]
... Chapter II The First Glimpses of Egyptian Astronomy The Rosetta Stone. (In the British Museum.) IN the general survey, which occupied the preceding chapter, of the records left by the most ancient peoples, it was shown that Egypt, if we consider her monuments, came first in the order of time. I have next to show that in the earliest monuments we have evidences of the existence and utilisation of astronomical knowledge. It is impossible to approach such a subject as the astronomy of the ancient Egyptians without being struck with surprise that any knowledge is available to help us in our inquiries. A century ago, the man to whom we owe more than to ...
124. Reassessing the Date of the Arabah Copper Mines [Articles]
... examine in detail Velikovsky's suggestion that the Conquest took place at the end of the Middle Bronze Age in Palestine. Since then, John has worked on both the patriarchal period and the period following the Conquest, and today he is giving us a talk on the finds in the Arabah, it is basically about the conflict between the Syrian and Egyptian chronologies." John Bimson: "The title is a bit daunting, "Reassessing the Date of Copper Mines in the Arabah". The inspiration initially came from two articles that Dr. Eva Danelius wrote in 1976 which appeared in Kronos, where she highlighted a major disagreement among archaeologists over the date of copper mines in the Arabah ...
125. From Ramses III To Darius III. Part I Ch.5 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... From "Peoples of the Sea" © 1977 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents From Ramses III To Darius III The Later Ramessides IN THE PRECEDING pages we confronted the historical material from Greek and Egyptian sources and arrived at the conclusion that Nectanebo I of the Greek authors is an alter ego of Ramses III of modern historians, or Usimare-meramun Ramesse-hekaon of the Egyptian royal monuments and official papyri. In his own time and especially among the Greeks he was known as Nectanebo, the name he might have occasionally used in less formal situations. Whether this was so or whether Ramses III had, as is known to have occurred with other pharaohs, more than one set ...
126. Egyptian Chronology: A Solution to the Hyksos Problem [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:6 (1988) Home | Issue Contents Egyptian Chronology: A Solution to the Hyksos Problem Gunnar Heinsohn In Egypt, as in Mesopotamia, an advanced civilisation centred on the temple only arises towards the end of the second millennium BCE. The Old, Middle and New Kingdoms- terms which were completely unknown to the ancient Egyptians- belong entirely to the 1st millennium BCE, and- with one or two displacements- generally run parallel. One may well consider an analogy with the kings of Hannover, Prussia, Bavaria, Saxony and Austria, who were all German rulers yet reigned simultaneously with one of them also figuring as emperor. Temporarily, one ...
127. Chapter 1 The Foundations of Ancient History [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... the length of that chronology by at least 500 to 600 years. In this respect, his followers have gone beyond Velikovsky and have revised the history and shortened the length of the chronology by 1000 years or more. Although there is, as yet, no complete agreement among these revisionists, they have overall maintained that the length of ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian history must be significantly reduced. To determine whether or not this shattering alteration of ancient chronology has a basis in fact, one must examine the proper foundations upon which conventional ancient history rests. To make such an evaluation, this author 1 Gunnar Heinsohn, "Ancient Near Eastern Chronology Revised," The Velikovskian, vol. ...
128. Chronological Problems in the Archaeology of the Hittites [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , if applied to the history of ancient Anatolia and Syria, might rescue the archaeology of those regions from a series of extreme difficulties which are apparently quite insoluble within the framework of the accepted chronology. Introduction The Hittites were an Anatolian people whose existence, long suspected from the occasional mentions of their name in the Bible and in Assyrian and Egyptian records, received archaeological confirmation in a remarkable series of discoveries made in the late 19th and early 20th centuries [1 ]. Although travellers to Anatolia and Syria in the early 19th century visited and recorded with interest many of the rock-sculptures and monuments still visible, their nature was not correctly understood and they were mistakenly attributed to the Medes ...

130. Sothic Dating: A "Surrealjoinder" (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... I do plead guilty to muddling the definition of arcus visionis and the apparent motion of Sirius but I repeat that definitions and applications are quite different and if the latter are correct that is what is important and I am sure Rose would agree. It is flattering, but incorrect, to be termed by him "the world's leading authority on Egyptian astronomy". That has to be my colleague O. Neugebauer, who indeed has corrected me in the past on arcus visionis. I claim only to have some knowledge of Egyptian calendars. But what of my other muddles? Let us inquire first into Rose's criticism of my handling of Samuel and the Canopus Decree. He states that ...
