321. Ice Cores and Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... to create the world, or that King Arthur pulled the sword Excalibur from the stone. In this sense the Old Testament has been a hindrance rather than a help to archaeology, for one has to approach archaeology with a very open mind and not blind faith in fairy tales. Apart from the above, we also have the works of Homer: the Iliad and the Odyssey, and the neglected Rig Vedas - all evidence for the movement of tribes and peoples. There was a great movement of peoples at about 2000BC which was the result of the discovery of metal weapons with which to conquer, kill, and enslave. Until very recently archaeologists had little understanding of science. ...

... The flood-tide was only held back at the very gates of Egypt by Ramesses III in 1194 BC, who later settled the defeated invaders in their future home of southern Palestine as vassal-troops. "The tribal alliance of the Philistines was called by Ramesses III "The Peoples of the Sea" and included the Danuna (probably the same as the Homeric Greek adventurers the Danaoi), the Tjekker (Teucrians from Aegina), Shekelesh (from Sicily), Sherden (from Sardinia), Teresh (who may have been Etruscans) and Weshesh from Oaxus in Crete. These tribes are shown on the reliefs of Ramesses III wearing Aegean or proto-Greek-style armour and using Aegean equipment; in particular ...

... Scandinavia. Some 300 years ago the educated world was paralysed by the publication of Atlantica, written by Professor Olaus Rudbeck, of Upsala University, one of the world's oldest cities. Rüdbeck contended that Scandinavia was the Atlantis of Plato, the country of the Hyperboreans, was the Hesperides, the Fortunate Isles, and the Elysian Fields, which Homer placed in the west, near the Ocean, the resting-place of favoured heroes. In these views I hold that he was justified except that he should have included the British Isles in his scheme of things. He claimed that the Greeks derived their alphabet, astronomy, and religion from the same direction, which I believe can be proved ...

... years, well into the period when Venus was a harmless morning and evening star. Velikovsky dates this great "Venus Catastrophe" at the middle of the second millennium BC. Later, toward the beginning of the first millennium BC, the closest approach of Mars became more and more a subject of concern and comment. In the Iliad, Homer describes a battle between the Greeks and the Trojans as being accompanied by a terrifying celestial battle between flaming planets, Mars and Venus. After this interaction Mars became more and more feared, identified as the God of War, and equalled or displaced Venus as dominant god to be propitiated by ceremonial sacrifices. Catastrophes of greater and greater intensity ...

... gold. The Greek tradition has it that the Phrygians came from Thrace, crossing the Bosphorus. The time of their arrival is not known and there is nothing of archaeological nature to support the view sometimes expressed that they had already arrived in Anatolia in the thirteenth century: the only argument for such an early date is in the circumstance that Homer refers to the Phrygians as the allies of King Priam of Troy. Yet the opinion is expressed, too, that such an early dating should be disregarded, Homer's reference to the Phrygians being in the nature of an anachronism. No Phrygian antiquities from before the first half of the eighth century ( --800) have been found.1 ...

... have devoted many years of study to attempt to elucidate the mystery. The river Eridanus was mythologically a son of Oceanus, and there was but one ocean known to the ancients, that being the Atlantic. The Eridanus was also supposed to flow through the country of the Cimmerians, the original name of the Gaels or Galatai, described by Homer as situate beyond ocean stream (the Gulf Stream) and un-blest by the sun, a region of mist and fog. The Cimmerians, living in a region of amber and tin, are treated by Herodotus as an extinct people, who classified them nevertheless as dwelling in the ends of the earth. The Cimmerians, despite Herodotus, ...

... A lot of material has been covered in these three papers about hearts and mouths and "myth" (apropos here, since the word "myth" comes from the Greek mythos, meaning "word, speech"), and it brings to mind how "some proverbial sayings have a very long history indeed." [37] Homer (8th century BC) was apparently the first to use the phrase "to eat one's heart out" in order to express excessive worry. [38] If you consider the actual words and think of our discussion concerning the "mouth with the heart/eye," a new perspective on the origin of the phrase is possible ...

"Another surprise among our bronzes is a pair of greaves . . . . It is contended by Reichel (2 ) that metal greaves are unknown in Homer. He is satisfied that they were the invention of a later age (about 700 B.C .) ." Bronze fibulae, too, were found in the Enkomi tombs, as well as a large tripod "with spiral patterns resembling one in Athens, which is assigned to the Dipylon period," and a pair of ...
