... Civilisations of the Stone Age by Richard Rudgely, Century, £17.99 Rudgley brings together evidence from archaeology, anthropology and ancient history to argue that Stone Age people were more advanced in their technological and exploratory achievements than they have been given credit for. The book brings into question many of the assumptions about our own cultural superiority. Ancient Traces by Michael Baigent, Viking, £15.99 Baigent assesses earlier times than he has previously dealt with, calling into question much of the orthodoxy about evolution, early civilisation and the enigmas of the pyramids at Giza and the Sphinx. Ancient Goddesses edited by Lucy Goodison and Christine Morris, British Museum Press, £18.99 Historians and archaeologists write about the most recent evidence from a number of early civilisations for the existence of a universal mother goddess. Astronomy Before the Telescope edited by Christopher Walker, British Museum Press, £25 The most comprehensive survey of early world astronomy to date, packed with chapters by experts in every field. The following are available from Kronia Communications, Inc., 9350 SW Greenway, 24, Beaverton ...

They occupied a city called Kahun [13. As for the Exodus itself, Rosalie David wrote, 'It is apparent that the Asiatics were present in the town in some numbers, and this may have reflected the situation elsewhere in Egypt... Their exact homeland in Syria or Palestine cannot be determined... The reason for their presence in Egypt remains unclear' [14. Neither David nor Petrie could ascertain the reason for their presence in Egypt because they had the wrong dates. They ...

... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1999:1 (Jul 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents Bookshelf Jill Abery Gods of Eden by Andrew Collins 1999, Headline, £18.99 Eden and the legacy of ancient advanced civilisations seems to be the 'in' subject at the moment (although books on Atlantis still continue to run off the presses). This one is subtitled 'Egypt's Lost Legacy and the Genesis of Civilization' and is yet another consideration of the pyramids and Old Testament stories. Eden in the East by S. Oppenheimer 1998, British Museum Press, £18.99 At least this Eden is not situated in Egypt or the Near East. Sundaland was a vast land area which was swallowed up by catastrophically rising seas in the post glacial events of 14,000 years ago. Now known as the South China Sea it was the birthplace of the Neolithic revolution where rice was first grown and bronze first smelted. Two great floods 11,000 and 8000 years ago completely drowned the area. Oppenheimer claims that this area was the cradle of civilisation which was ...
174. Gods of the New Millennium by Alan F. Alford [SIS C&C Review $]
... will love this. In an 'Important Foreword', Alan Alford' promises us explanations of the Nazca lines, Easter Island, the Great Pyramid, Stonehenge, Machu Picchu- and hints that he can demonstrate a scientific basis for millennial fears, predicting that major changes will be directed at the Earth around that time. Gods of the New Millennium follows on from Zecharia Sitchin's The Twelfth Planet and argues that the gods of legend were really travellers from outer space, who brought with them the secrets of civilisation and the knowledge to build pyramids etc. He identifies in particular the Sumerian gods Enlil and Enki as key players: they came from a tenth planet, 'Nibiru', which has an extremely elliptical 3,600 year orbit, resulting in periodic visits from 'gods' to seed life on Earth and accelerate its evolution. Nibiru also played a key role in causing The Flood, causing it by nearly colliding with the Earth 13,000 years ago. In Alford's theory, the fact that so many breakthroughs in human knowledge, from the wheel and the boat ...

... in the mainstream of European development from the beginning of the 5 th century, with the survival of much of the Roman era alongside new 'Germanic' elements.

176. De Grazian Discography (Reviewed) [SIS C&C Review $]
... the de Grazia assumption is that the celestial culprits in past global upheavals were the planets. Current astronomy confirms that though geological mayhem appears to have been the rule throughout the solar system, the physical evidence for recent orbital changes is wholly negative. The 'Best Buy' in neocatastrophism at the moment remains Clube and Napier's giant comet. The scientific plausibility of this at least allows progress to be made in all our areas of interest, from megalithic astronomy to archaeology and mythology. It even allows Duncan Steel to repeat Velikovsky's proposal that the pyramids were 'air-raid shelters', without risk of dismissal from his astronomical post! However, much of the work of pioneers of exoterrestrial catastrophe remains valid whichever celestial perpetrator is eventually found guilty. However for the astronomer, this identification may be critical: in the context of humanity' s direct experiences, I am reminded of quotation from Ogden Nash in Velikovsky's Foreword to Ages in Chaos. He was referring to those who might quibble about this or that detail in his theory (OK, planets/comets is pretty large-scale quibbling- ...
177. When the Gods Came Down by Alan F. Alford (Reviewed) [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 2001:2 (Jan 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents When the Gods Came Down by Alan F. Alford Hodder& Stoughton, London, 2000 £20 Reviewed by Alasdair Beal Alan Alford's first book, Gods of the New Millennium, followed in Zecharia Sitchin's footsteps, arguing that ancient gods such as Enlil and Marduk were actually extraterrestrial aliens from another planet who brought civilisation, pyramids (which were really giant fuel cells) and atomic warfare (see review, C&CR pp. 50-51). Alford has come a long way since then and his latest book rejects the idea of alien invaders, looking for other explanations for ancient legends which are closer to the ideas of modern catastrophism. As before, the blurb on the dustcover is full of portent, promising 'a totally original piece of research, which places its readers on a par with the most privileged 'initiates' of the last 5,000 years'. However this time the theory may strike SIS readers as less shocking, perhaps even conventional- for ...

Note: See early SISR (Newsletter 2, September 1975) for interesting and related ideas from David Parker (S. Croydon) in his 'Joseph and the Pyramids', in which Joseph is equated with Imhotep and the great famine is a product of catastrophe. Martin Sieff in his reply agrees with Mr. Parker.- Ed.

... that of I. Velikovsky in 'Worlds in Collision', which he refers to on p. 91. Mooney states that Velikovsky's theory has many weaknesses: 1. He notes that Velikovsky dates the catastrophe in two parts: one 3500 years ago and the other 2600 years ago, which makes the final displacement of the Ice Age masses well within documented historic times, whereas the legendary and geological evidence places the termination 6000- 8000 years ago. 2. "A catastrophe of the scale envisaged would have destroyed such edifices as the pyramids, Stonehenge and other structures already in existence at this time." 3. The main objection is that the catastrophe was caused by a comet and Velikovsky is criticised for crediting comets with more dangerous properties than they actually possess. Mooney states in evidence that "the molecules of the gases and the micrometeorites are so widely dispersed in the body of the comet that by terrestrial standards they constitute a virtual vacuum." The tails, he continues, are similar in that they "resemble ionized gas clouds which...are extremely tenuous ...
