71. Shaft Grave Art: Modern Problems [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... inlaid weapons of the Shaft Graves. Frescoes in the tombs of the Theban nobles who served Hatshepsut and Thutmose III portray foreign emissaries whose physiognomy, pigmentation, hair style and dress exactly resemble Aegean portraits of themselves. Those and later frescoes, along with Thutmose III ? s bas relief from Karnak, depict metal vessels which correspond in material, shape and decoration to the cups, goblets, pitchers, jars, conical pouring vessels, animal-headed containers and figurines which excavators have found in the rich graves of Mycenaean Greece, the mansions on Santorini, and the palaces and villas of Crete. The archaeologists of Egypt and the Levant have also discovered a number of actual Aegean exports of (and slightly later than) the Shaft Grave Period in contexts which are clearly contemporaneous with Thutmose III. 3 Since such firm links between the early Eighteenth Dynasty and the Shaft Graves establish a synchronism, Aegean archaeologists, who lacked a reliable dating system of their own, turned to their colleagues, the Egyptologists, who had employed the pharaonic lists of Manetho and astronomical computations to determine absolute ...
72. QUANTAVOLUTION: COSMIC HERETICS: Part 1: Chapter 3: CHEERS AND HISSES [Quantavolution Website]
... life he was leading in these years is reflected in the following letter from Naxos to Dr. Zvi Rix of Jerusalem, dated July 19, 1976: Dear Dr. Rix: Greetings! I hope my letter finds you well-- and not too impatient with your friends and colleagues of the field of revolutionary primevalogy. I have settled down in Naxos for a few weeks (until August 15), after visits in London, Amsterdam, Delft, Dusseldorf, Dornach (the Rudolf Steiner Center), Athens, and Thera Santorini. On the 15th of August, I go to Athens, the Dordogne (to spend two weeks around the caves and digs), Nice for the IX International Congress of the Union of Pre-and Proto-Historical Sciences, and then probably straight back to NYC and Princeton. I have been carrying your letter of April 2 (terrible!) with me for months. Let me "respond" to it. 1) As I have said, you only need a) to be able to come and b) to find out ...
73. Monitor [SIS C&C Review $]
... to an incoming object from space and says that the pattern of tectonic faults, along with 16 other factors, indicates that it was an internal explosion of gases forced upwards by molten magma. Ancient Apocalypses BBC2 TV, 3.7.01, 27.7.01, 9.8.01, 16.8.01 This interesting series explored what might have caused the apparent sudden demise of several ancient civilisations. The explosion of Thera was blamed, naturally, for the end of the Minoan culture. There is evidence that the eruption was much larger than previously thought and not only did it destroy Santorini itself but would have severely disrupted the culture on Crete. Signs of sacrificed children indicate that the surviving people no longer had faith in the divine authority of their priests and mainland Greeks took advantage of the weakened society. The end of Egypt's Old Kingdom, some orthodox 700 years earlier, was put down to famine due to lack of rainfall and failure of the Nile flood as a result of a sudden climate change, confirming Mandelkehr's work on the evidence of a major catastrophe around 2,200BC. The sudden disappearance of the ...
74. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... . These arguments are weighty but, whether the theory is validated or not, it is undeniable that no good geological evidence has yet been produced for a sunken continent in the Atlantic Ocean. In recent years, the most popular theory about Atlantis has been that Plato's account of its rich civilisation and sudden end is derived from memories of Minoan Crete, which was destroyed in the middle of the second millennium BC. Spyridon Marinatos has argued that the cause of this destruction was the cataclysmic explosion of the volcanic island of Thera (modern Santorini) c. 1500 BC, which resulted in volcanic ash falling on eastern Crete. This was about 900 years before Solon (in terms of the accepted chronology); it is therefore assumed that Plato's 9,000 years are simply a tenfold exaggeration of the antiquity of this event. It has also been suggested that the account of an Atlantean invasion of the Mediterranean from the west may be a folk-memory of the "Sea Peoples" who were repelled by Ramesses III. Unfortunately, this event is dated to a period some ...

76. June 15, 762 BCE: A Mathematical Analysis of Ancient History [The Velikovskian $]
... tightly woven framework. This treatise was limited in its detail to the span of time between the accession of Egyptian King Amenhotep III, the Magnificent, in 905, and the Persian conquest of Egypt in 504. The mathematical analyses of the auxiliary historical periods before 905 and after 504 adhere to all the major tenets of Dr. Velikovsky. In the former period, all synchronisms can be developed with accuracy and precision as far back as 1626, which I feel is the exact year of the Exodus, the Hyksos Invasion and the Santorini Cataclysm. Separately included, but not discussed or detailed in this treatise, is a synchronized chronology of the histories of Egypt and Israel back to the year 1626. It should be easy for Assyriologists and others to adapt their chronologies as well. It is my contention that these cosmic events are not random occurrences. They are as systematic as the passing of the seasons during the course of an earthly year. Shifts occur in space. The poles do not shift at random. There is a structure to all of this and ...
