71. A Lowered Chronology for the Twelfth Dynasty [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... the reader's attention to some unexpected, but very important, developments that have come about in connection with my work on the calendars of Hellenistic and Roman Egypt. Any detailed argument will have to be deferred to other occasions. I have found that the El-Lahun papyri contain very strong evidence that the Twelfth Dynasty needs to be lowered by a full Sothic period. Thus, the so-called Middle Kingdom (of which the Twelfth Dynasty is the concluding part) belongs right smack in the middle of the first millennium, instead of straddling the boundary between the third millennium and the second millennium! One of those El-Lahun papyri puts the heliacal rising of Sirius on IIII prt 16 in Year 7 of ...
72. Editorial [Journals] [SIS Review]
... narrative, ' wrote Winston Churchill - the key to our whole understanding of history. Velikovsky's main bone of contention with the accepted scheme of ancient Near Eastern history is that its perspective is completely distorted due to a fault, primarily in the chronology of Egypt, that left the histories of Egypt and Palestine almost totally devoid of synchronism. Abandoning Sothic dating, a system that soon collapses under scientific scrutiny, Velikovsky developed an entirely new scheme, using Biblical chronology as his yardstick. The flaws in the conventional chronology that he pointed to still remain. Velikovsky found a parallel to the Biblical account of the "plagues" that beset Egypt before the Israelite Exodus in the papyrus known as ...

... the problem is one of measurement. AC commented that it only makes 27 years difference; he was more interested in what makes 430 years difference. Next Meeting of the SIS Ancient History Study Group is on Saturday 24th February 1996 at 2pm at 16 Oman Avenue, London NW2 6BG (tel. (0181) 452 7376). LAST SOTHIC DATE UNDER ATACK In recent years the New Kingdom Sothic date came to be regarded as unreliable, following criticism by the leading German Egyptologist, W Helck (Goettinger Miszellan 67 (1983), see also JACF 3 pp. 50 - 51). That left only the Middle Kingdom Sothic date which supposedly fixes the 12th dynasty at c ...

75. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ." Dr John Fermor Picture by Charles Chartan The third talk, on "A Revised Chronology for Egypt" was by DR JOHN FERMOR, a lecturer in geography and the history of science at the Glasgow College of Technology. Dr Fermor's address was a closely and cogently argued tour de force outlining a radical new approach to the question of Sothic dating and Egyptian chronology. While he agrees with many of Velikovsky's criticisms about conventional calculations for, and use of, Sothic data, Fermor believes that such valuable calendric material must not be ignored, and that careful re-evaluation of the evidence, including allowance for possible catastrophes during the period in question, might result in a new astronomical chronology ...

... am worried by the inflexibility of his [Trevor's] last sentence. I cannot see how the history revision that I, and presumably many other SIS members regard as essential, can be achieved without challenging information that is regarded as well-established'. Peter Fairlie-Clarke, Teddington, Middlesex Dear Reader Velikovsky identified the astronomical' dating system of the so-called Sothic Calendar' as a major factor in the construction of the basically fictitious Egyptian chronology accepted by mainstream academia. Bearing this in mind, it was with some apprehension that I found Professor Lynn Rose attempting a rehabilitation of the Sothic system. In his book Sun Moon and Sothis, Rose initially demolishes the credibility of Sothic dating as a whole ...

... as the conventional chronology demands it). For the wrong order' coffins in the Deir el-Bahri cache Kitchen proposes an extra intermediate resting place for Seti I's coffin (might be possible) and in the Wadi Hammamat architects' genealogy he would see a different Haremsaf from the one contemporary with Shoshenq I (possible). He proposes a new Sothic date from the time of Merneptah (will probably go the way of other New Kingdom Sothic dates!). Over a page is devoted to Mesopotamia where, for example, he regards Rohl's equating of Tukulti-Ninurta I and II as impossible. Here Kitchen has slipped up: Rohl did not equate the Tukultis but merely related a Hittite king ...
