191. The Burning of Troy [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the body of techniques that needs to be assembled and developed. THE "BURNT CITY" OF TROY In some exciting passages, which have unquestionably been among the most widely read of all archaeological writing, Schliemann describes how, in May of 1873, he uncovered "The treasure of Priam," King of Troy during the war between the Greeks and Trojans. (Neither his identification of the Treasure as Priam's nor of the City as the Troy of Homer is at issue here, and therefore these problems are passed over lightly.) Schliemann reports [5 ] that the "Trojans of whom Homer sings" occupied a stratum of debris "from 7 to 10 meters, or ...

... myself what kind of counterarguments I may expect from exacting critics. There are several, and each of them receives mention here; certain single subjects either have been or will be discussed by me at greater length in other places. And here are the questions I expect: 1. The identification of Psammetich, Necho, and Apries in the Greek writings with Seti, Ramses, and Merneptah, known from the monuments, raises the question: If the first are known as pharaohs with Tanis on the eastern side of the Delta as their capital, while the later kings are known as Saitic pharaohs with their capital at Sas, on the other side of the Delta, how can ...

... at Compartive Mythology Isaac N. Vail "Far away in the twilight time of every people in every clime Dragons and griffins and monsters dire Born of water and air and fire Crawl and wriggle and foam with rage Through dusk, tradition and ballad age" We are so accustomed to think of mythology in its connection with the poetry of the Greeks and Romans that we forget, if indeed we have realized with our poet, that every people in every clime has a myth system of its own. To make our glance at comparative mythology comprehensive, we must keep this fact in view, for we shall find that nations most widely separated often have traditions very similar in character. ...

... Sparta in the Corinthian War ( -387); gaining temporary hegemony, Thebes humiliated Sparta. Its authority was established also in Macedonia in the north, and Philip, the youngest son of the Macedonian king, was held as a hostage and raised in Thebes. Later the Thebans; invited Philip to participate in the internal struggles of the Greek states, but when he was about to conquer Athens, Thebes, fearing the expansion of the Macedonian state to neighboring Athens, allied herself with this city, and together they suffered defeat at Chaeronea. The Boeotian confederacy was dissolved, and a Macedonian garrison occupied the Theban citadel. When Philip died, Thebes revolted, and the eighteen-year-old ...

... the origin of the alphabet. Some authorities now trace the origin of the alphabet to the first half of the second millennium, on the evidence not only of the Byblos inscriptions but also of the writings found at Ras Shamra and in the Sinai, which are believed to be contemporary with the Egyptian XVIIIth Dynasty. It is accepted that the Greek alphabet (alpha, beta, gamma, delta .. .) was derived from the Phoenician (aleph, beth, gimmel, deleth .. .) . The earliest surviving Greek script dates to the 8th century, although the similarity of the archaic Greek letters to those on the Mesha stele suggests that it may have been adopted ...

... regarded as sound they are seized upon by archaeologists dealing with cultures in contact with Egypt which were either non-literate or whose writing is non-historical or still undeciphered. The absolute dates attached to finds in Greece for the Late Bronze (also called Late Helladic or Mycenaean) Age are thus derived directly from Egyptian ones. Once dates have been assigned to Greek material, exports of that material from Greece to other lands in turn furnish absolute dates to the places and strata in which they are encountered. This is especially true of the Mycenaean pottery of Greece which is quite distinctive and whose sequence has been established by experts noting stratigraphy of the finds and changes in shape and decoration. The absolute ...

... hands he carried his magic lance, Gingnir.(14) Among both peoples, Odin/Woden became the national god of war and it was under his patronage that the Angles and the Saxons invaded Britain.(15) Seen thus, Odin reminds one of the Babylonian Nergal at the head of his demons, (16) the Greek Ares with his "never resting horrible creatures",(17) or the Vedic Indra leading his terrible Maruts.(18) Students of Velikovsky may therefore recognize Odin/Woden and his furious celestial army as the planet Mars when, according to Velikovsky, it plagued the Earth as it brushed close with its accompanying brood of comets ...

... and on several other occasions caused tremendous destruction here. The foundations or refounding of the city of Athens may be of this date [1 ], just as those of Rome were concurrent with the raging appearance in the skies of the planet-god Mars 700 years later. References from a number of cultures lead one to believe that, as the Greek theogony put it, Athena sprang from Zeus fully-armed with a shout. Athena sprang quickly from the immortal head and stood before Zeus who holds the aegis, shaking a sharp spear: great Olympus began to reel horribly at the might of the bright-eyed goddess, and earth round about cried fearfully, and the sea was moved and tossed with ...

... Troy, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER SEVENTEEN Making Moonshine with Hard Science Professor Irving Michelson wrote a little piece of "hard science" (his term) called "Scientifically Speaking..." and subtitled "19-year Lunar Calendar Cycle: Accurate Adjustment to 365 1/4-Day Civil Calendar" [2 ]. A Greek named Meton of about 432 B.C . is credited with having discovered the 19-years repetitive coincidence of lunar month and tropical solar year. Michelson said that Meton's "discovery of the 19-year cycle presupposes precise knowledge of the length of the lunar month as well as of the solar (tropical) year of 365.2421988 days, to ...

Several links also provide some important background on the debates and controversies covered in the book.
