61. On the Length of Reigns of the Sumerian Kings [Journals] [SIS Review]
... in the Old Testament records is certainly unique and nowhere else duplicated. Dating the Flood Now to the question of when the Flood occurred. Presently there are two main approaches for dating, on the one hand the one used by archaeologists, who use the methods of comparative studies, that is, analysis of sherds and building blocks, and radiocarbon. The other approach uses the witness of extant records such as those transmitted through Berossus. Both approaches will be investigated. According to latest archaeological reports, dating begins before the year 2550 BC in Elam, Kish, Uruk, Ur and Lagash . Dating for low estimates: Dating for high estimate: BC 2550 BC ...
62. The Ages of Bristlecone Pine [Journals] [Pensee]
... of a pattern and are a useful tool in the hands of competent researchers. However, it is extremely difficult to use such a procedure when dealing with samples containing hundreds of rings in comparisons with a master chronology with thousands of rings. Therefore, in the case of the bristlecone pine chronology, the expedient of determining initial placement by a radiocarbon date has been employed. In the words of the researcher, "I often am unable to date specimens with one or two thousand rings against a 7500-year master chronology, even with the ball-park' placement provided by a radiocarbon date" (6 ). Two observations are in order here: 1. The construction of the bristlecone pine ...
63. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 10/99, etc.). This idea is an unexpected development and may explain at least part of the discrepancy between calibrated carbon dating and schemes such as the New Chronology. That it is feasible in principle Keenan shows by referencing some atmospheric measurements from a site in Ecuador, Aychapicho, 250 km inland from the Pacific Ocean (Radiocarbon 1995, pp. 509-15). In 1992, at a time of upwelling of deep ocean water, the C14 content of the atmosphere at Aychapicho was reduced by an amount representing an apparent age of a few hundred years. Keenan also explains the relationship between Black Sea and Mediterranean waters that gave rise to the E. Med. ...
64. Catastrophism and the Mammoths- III (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... such faunal assemblages. Be that as it may, one must then account for the absense in the permafrost of frozen temperate species of animal in association with the mammoth, a point that I had earlier raised but, Cardona's howler apart, one which remains unanswered . 40,000+ YEARS OLD? I agree with Ellenberger in that the radiocarbon dating of frozen mammoth remains is a subject that is important enough to warrant renewed discussion. His major problem, as also Cardona's, is that the carbon-14 dates allotted to mammoth carcasses have too wide a spread to be consistent with the theory of mammoth extinction in a single cataclysm.(69) One difficulty when such radiocarbon dates are ...

... reports for Shiloh, noting some chronological anomalies. In resolving these he produces a radically new interpretation of pottery chronology for the MB/LB/Iron ages. Horizons: 1991 ISIS Fellowship Lecture given by Prof Manfred Bietak 28 Jesse Lasken: Should the European Oak Dendrochronologies be Re-examined? 30 In the first of three articles reviewing dendrochronology and calibrated radiocarbon dates, Jesse Lasken questions the soundness of the Irish and German oak chronologies and their independence, both from one another and from the bristlecone pine chronology in the USA. Bernard Newgrosh: Calibrated Radiocarbon and the Methodological Fault-Line' 35 Examines the difficulties caused even for conventional historians by the application of calibrated radiocarbon dates.

... , Dr Meynell felt, were especially strengthened, as Velikovsky had pointed out, by the occurrence of similar descriptions of celestial effects from different locations unlikely to have a common cultural influence; alternative explanations, such as Panbabylonism, had all proved untenable. DR EUAN MACKIE, Assistant Keeper, Hunterian Museum, University of Glasgow: The Evidence of Radiocarbon Dates. Speaking without notes, Dr MacKie covered material included in the paper read by him at the Nice Congress (see Focus, last issue), to be printed in a future Review. Starting with a detailed introduction to the theory and application of radiocarbon dating and its recalibration by tree-ring dates, Dr MacKie then presented the findings ...

69. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... (surprising for such a technical subject), Ian M.E . Shaw of the University of Cambridge presents the conclusions of comparing the recent Irish Oak calibration to the older sequoia and bristlecone pine ones. It is clear from these that the Irish Oak calibration confirms the accuracy and validity of application of the method, and the table of radiocarbon dates of Egyptian artifacts which follows the discussion is immensely valuable. We commend this paper for detailed study and discussion. The publication in 1983 of the Irish Oak calibration curve "totally transformed" the acceptability of dendrochronology. An almost perfect "wiggle-match" could be demonstrated when comparing Irish oaks with Douglas fir and Californian sequoia, so providing ...
70. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Venus Tablets of Ammisaduqa" can only be interpreted in terms of the High Chronology (ie. an early date for Hammurabi): Bietak, drawing on his excavation evidence, is the most potent advocate of the Low Chronology. Various other archaeologists display open-mindedness and carefully examine the applicability of some of the older evidence. Ingrid Olsson's paper on radiocarbon dating is very revealing on the methodology of modern dating, with its various correction factors e.g . for marine deposits. This paper has been superseded by recent data from ice core and tree-ring dating which support the High Chronology. In another paper, Vronwy Hankey expresses a serious misgiving with modern radiocarbon data (of Betancourt) supporting ...
