591. Merlin and the Round Temple [Journals] [SIS Review]
... locally. Iron Age forts throughout the British Isles and Europe regularly reveal caches of polished stone axe heads and arrowheads - much to the (unjustified) puzzlement of archaeologists. Heinrich Schliemann discovered large numbers of stone arrowheads and axe heads in Late Bronze Age burials at Mycenae and Tiryns [6 ], while Herodotus noted that a detachment of the Persian army which invaded Greece in the early 5th century BC was armed with stone-tipped spears and arrows [7 ]. Seutonius records that the Germanic warriors of his time (first century AD) mostly could not afford iron swords and spears and that many were armed simply with pointed sticks [8 ]. If the discovery of stone implements in ...

592. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Jordan gave an 11th century BC date for occupation, with monuments built in the 10th century BC. The Elamite city of Anshan has revealed buildings and artefacts going back as far as 3000 BC, but written material found there is, as yet, untranslated. Light may eventually be shed on its relationship with nearby Sumerian cities and the later Persian period. MYTH Wings or Flames? (BBC Radio 4, 2.2 .05.) A horse depicted in the Dunhuang Caves in north-west China is described as winged, but the wings' look distinctly like flames. The horse also appears to have ears', which look more like horns. There seems to be a ...

... itself provides no evidence of polychrome glazing between the 12th and 7th centuries. In the first millennium B.C . glazing reappears at a fairly primitive level in Mesopotamia in the early 9th century. Over the next four centuries it develops to a high technical and aesthetic standard under the Neo-Assyrian (883-612), Neo-Babylonian (625-539),and Persian (559-332 B.C .) empires. It appears that the initial stimulus came from the Phoenician cultural influence transmitted to Assyria as a result of the Syrian campaigns of Ashurnasirpal II(883-859 B.C .) . The chronological pattern emerging from Dayton's researches, therefore, is as follows. First, allowing that metallurgy and glazing ...

... that the pharaoh known from the monuments as Ramesses III was identical to Nectanebo (I ) of Diodorus, he claims on pp. 88-98 of Peoples of the Sea that the Nekhtnebef and Nekhthorheb of the monuments were not, as commonly supposed, Nectanebo I and II of Dynasty XXX, but local rulers who flourished under the authority of the Persian satrap Arsames during the second half of the 5th century BC. With these misunderstandings clarified, it should now be possible to proceed to an examination of the main issues raised by Michael Jones.

595. Is Is Illig Right, and and AD Chronology Wrong? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... and demanded that converts be circumcised, eat only kosher (or halal') meat, wash ritually before praying, etc. [15]. The massive expansion of Islam across North Africa towards Spain did occur in the 7th and 8th centuries – but the military might behind that expansion came from Iran and not from Arabia. The powerful Persians of the early 7th century, who inflicted defeat after defeat on the Byzantines, encountered Islam in Syria, converted to the new faith and then spread it westwards [16]. As for the Jewish calendar, this shared the same problem as the Christian one – both used dates according to the chronology outlined in the Old Testament, ...

... before the present era, five days were added at the end of the year, as days over the year' or days of nothing.

"The way in which hydrocarbons occur globally also provides problems for the theories of biological origin. Why is the Middle East so rich in hydrocarbons? The mountains of southeastern Turkey, the valley of the Tigris, the folded mountains of Persia, the Persian Gulf and the flat plains of Saudi Arabia have little in common with each other, except that they form one connected region that is enormously well supplied with oil and gas. No one has discovered a unifying feature for the region as a whole. The oil fields span different geological ages, have different rocks, called cap rock, ...
