101. Chronology [Books]
... a sequence is known, that of any synchronized sequence is also determined. 2. Where geochronology is applied (in geological times and in prehistory), the method of stratigraphy is used to establish the relative chronology (see Part I, Chapter 1, Nos. 3 and 4). Strata containing the same fossils and the same human ... also give indications on the relative age, although this too has not an absolute character. Even nowadays stone implements are being made and used! (iii) By the stratigraphical position of the objects on the site. Objects found in the lower strata are generally older than those found in higher levels, provided the strata have not been disturbed ...
102. Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... of exercises and further reading. The first half of the book gives a sound introduction to the principles of a variety of subjects, including ecology, evolution, petrology, stratigraphy, palaeontology, and structural geology. A whole chapter is devoted to plate tectonics, including continental drift, now surely established in principle if not in detail. The ... the extinctions that pervade Earth and Life through Time, and form the subject of the whole of the later book. In a sense, that is implicit in dividing the stratigraphical record into periods, each characterised by different flora and fauna. Norman Newell, in his 1962 Presidential Address to the Paleontological Society, pointed out that the stratigraphic record ...
103. Catastrophism and Evolution [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 1984 Luis Alvarez listed no less than 32 (the major locations being shown on the map opposite). The controversy still continues, however, about the exact nature, stratigraphy and significance of the iridium-rich levels [2 ]. For example, in a non-marine site at Hell Creek, Montana, the iridium-rich layer is about a metre above ... and further into epochs, each characterised by its unique flora and fauna, as judged by the fossil record (Figure 1). Although it was subsequently to emerge that stratigraphic characteristics were not absolutely identical in every part of the world, the early investigations in Europe revealed clear-cut boundaries between the layers of rock used as the basis for classification ...
104. An Integrated Model for an Earthwide Event at 2300 BC. Part II: The Geological Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... underwent uplift some time around 2500 BC. The investigator based his finding on radiocarbon dating of coral reefs and fossil beach deposits along the coast . The sedimentation stratigraphy is very likely a result of the uplift. The sedimentation dating provides a more precise date for the Saurashtra uplift, and correlates well with the Indus Valley uplift. ... and Falcon', Journal of the American Oriental Society 95 (1975), pp.47, 55 40.

106. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... be taken as a historical sequence. This is not due to any intention of the bible compilers to falsify the true record but to the lack of any means - like stratigraphy or reliable handbooks - to check the correct chronological order of things. The Hebrew pioneers had different texts on their tables and could only guess how to interconnect them. ... borders of Solomon's empire are identical with the borders of Persia's Satrapy Transeuphrates. Again, the conventional dates of neither Solomon nor Tiglath-Pileser are taken at face value. The latter's stratigraphical position is immediately beneath Hellenism which brings him into the late Achaemenid period. Is he an Achaemenid Great King of the -5th/4th century in one or another of ...
107. The Establishment of Gradualism [Books]
... of science at Queen's University, Belfast, suspects that "it is probable that Smith's name was invoked merely to head off the claim that the real pioneers of the new stratigraphy were French" [10: p. 121]. Be that as it may, Smith produced a Map of the Strata of England and Wales in 1815, ... " [14: pp. 105-110]. Cuvier, however, took a very different view. As related by Richard Huggett: "He saw in the fossil and stratigraphic record evidence of revolutionary changes heralding the start of new geological and palaeontological epochs. The energy required for the change was, to him, far greater than the ordinary ...
108. The Cosmic Serpent by Victor Clube and Bill Napier [Journals] [Kronos]
... 54) and from these foundations of sand they postulate an encounter with a very dense meteor stream as its cause. Over Thera, Clube and Napier come into difficulties with stratigraphy, for they see the eruption of Thera as both a part of and a consequence of the world-wide disturbance that took place at the time of the Exodus.( ... and it seriously weakens the rest of their cosmological scenario. ARCHAEOLOGICAL ANARCHY On Velikovsky's handling of archaeological data, Clube and Napier wrote: "His later identifications contravened the usual stratigraphic sequence of events, however, and archaeologists have generally found them quite unacceptable."(53) Alas, for their own ventures into the field of archaeology, ...

... and Middle Kingdom dynasties which had tin products after the middle of the second millennium B.C . This is corroboration and correlation for the short chronology, not contradiction. Stratigraphy in Egypt, where Old, Middle, and New Kingdom artefacts are found mixed together at the Old, Middle, and New Kingdom sites, requires no ad hoc ... to the present. This, too, is a contradiction, not support for the long chronology. Charles Ginenthal, Pillars of the Past 241 In order to uphold the stratigraphical placement of the Old, Middle, and New Kingdoms in the conventional chronology, Egyptologists must either ignore facts, or invent ad hoc hypotheses again and again to explain ...
110. 'No Impact': René Gallant (1906-1985) [Books]
... worked in the Allied cryptography intelligence unit at Bletchley Park, deciphering German Navy Command orders  . In his spare time he wrote the bulk of his magnum opus Stratigraphie compare et Chronologie de l'Asie Occidentale published in 1948. In this he demonstrated that conclusive archaeological evidence existed for catastrophism during the Bronze Ages in the Eastern Mediterranean region. ... 1 ] . Amid such anti-historical feeling by many scientists, we should recall that much scientific practice relies on factual considerations of priority (within geology particularly in taxonomy & in stratigraphic practice). Such science thus has to be highly historic , but much else does not. Historians have two tasks among many. One is to uncover but not ...
