151. Question Session 1: Chairman - Brian Moore [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2000:1 "Proceedings of the SIS Silver Jubilee Event" Home | Issue Contents Question Session 1: Chairman - Brian Moore Q1. David Roth asked John Bimson whether he approached archaeology by looking just at the stratigraphy, or by relating this to either Egyptian or Biblical history, each of which could give different dates. Can an archaeologist avoid being influenced by preconceptions and can he separate these three completely when excavating or studying the findings? John replied that stratigraphy by itself only provides relative dates, lower strata being generally earlier than higher strata. It's what you find in the strata which provides potentially absolute dates. In case of Syro ...
152. In Memoriam: Dr Claude Schaeffer-Forrer, 1898-1982: An Appreciation [Journals] [SIS Review]
... at Ras Shamra (Ugaritica I-VII), and a supplementary work on the Cuneiform texts of Ras Shamra-Ugarit (1939). He also published the results of his excavations in Cyprus (Enkomi-Alasia, 1952; Alasia I, 1971). However, his most important and comprehensive work on Near Eastern archaeology and chronology in the Bronze Age, entitled Stratigraphie comparée et chronologie de l'Asie occidentale (IIIe et IIe millenaires) (Oxford 1948) has remained sadly neglected and undervalued for more than three decades. This great work was conceived and written in unusual and unpromising circumstances. The fall of France in June 1940 found Schaeffer in England, engaged on cryptographic work, in the course of which ...
153. The Timna Test [Journals] [Aeon]
... a minimum gap of more than a century and a half is opened between Ramesses III and the earliest possible point that Queen Twosere could appear because, by -525, the tail of Dynasty XIX had not yet lifted above the horizon. Meantime, we are of course obliged to show that the 150+ year gap is comfortably supported by the stratigraphical sequence at Timna. For example, we learn from the excavators [3 ] that, at some stage, the temple was savagely overthrown and thoroughly de-Egyptianized. Painstaking devotion to erasure of almost all hieroglyphic inscriptions from the stones and monuments of the original building is inconsistent with the smashed major pieces which themselves attest to a separate action of ...
154. Chapter VII: The Earth [The Age of Velikovsky] [Books]
... of the evidence is explainable by uniformity. For those interested in investigating both sides of this issue, Cardona has written an excellent review article.) 14 For a number of years, Ager has taught geology, mainly uniformitarian style, at the University College of Swansea in Wales. In 1973 he published a book on The Nature of the Stratigraphical Record. He discusses plate tectonics and other drift ideas, but he also gives some anti-drift arguments. He seems to indicate that some, although not all, formations might be explained by drift. However, he believes that the standard uniformitarian ideas about deposits are not totally adequate and that some catastrophic ideas must be considered. Ager prefers ...
155. The Bible Unearthed by Israel Finkelstein & Neil Asher Silberman (Book review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2002:2 (Feb 2003) Home | Issue Contents The Bible Unearthed by Israel Finkelstein & Neil Asher Silberman The Free Press, Simon & Schuster, 2001 Phillip Clapham Written by a leading archaeologist and a historian of note, this book is an up-to-the-minute window on Iron Age stratigraphy. Finkelstein is often quoted by Bob Porter and, to get a proper perspective of Finkelstein's radical redating, it is useful to have some of Bob's articles at hand (e .g . Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology', C&CR 2002:1 , p. 14 and The Iron Age and the New Chronology' in JACF:8 ...
156. Shiloh a Central Cultic Israel Site [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XI:1 (Jan 1989) Home | Issue Contents INTERACTION Shiloh a Central Cultic Israel Site Brad Aaronson In his critique of the revised stratigraphy proposed by Stan Vaninger (C &AH, 10/1 ), William Stiebing states "Shiloh . . . was occupied for the first time in MBIIB (which begins just before the time of Saul, according to the Courville/Vaninger chronology). . . ." This is misleading. True, in most of the land MBIIB began shortly before the time of Saul; at Shiloh, however, it began when the Israelites first occupied it. The culture which the Israelites brought into ...
157. A Survey of Archaeological Evidence for a Revised Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... are impossible. I know from personal experience how easy it is to find apparent fits' between, for example, the histories of Egypt and biblical Palestine; but the fact is that surface correspondences, however numerous, are not enough to prove the correctness of a revised chronology. The more sweeping revisions all fall at the twin stumbling-blocks of stratigraphy and Egypt's Third Intermediate Period (TIP). Methodologically, the best approach is to produce a workable alternative model for the TIP data and then test it by working backwards. This is essentially how the two revisions I am going to discuss came into being. The version developed by David Rohl probably involves the maximum possible compression of the ...

... VENUS AND HYDROCARBONS - A reply to Dr W. T. Plummer of the University of Massachusetts on the composition of Venus' atmosphere. VENUS' ATMOSPHERE - An extensive discussion in the light of the space probe data. A REPLY TO STIEBING - Examines Dr W. H. Stiebing's criticisms of AGES IN CHAOS in the light of the stratigraphical record; followed by supportive excerpts from unpublished works on "Scarabs" and "Tiryns". MY CHALLENGE TO CONVENTIONAL VIEWS IN SCIENCE - The complete text of Velikovsky's paper given at the AAAS symposium of 1974.

159. Sediments [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the source of all sedimentary rock [7 ], following a process of weathering of source material, transportation, deposition, and lithification which compacts and cements the material into a coherent rock. But to address such rocks with the fixed idea of gradual erosion is inappropriate. Geologists, writes Ager, generally act on the belief that "the stratigraphical column in any one place is a long record of sedimentation with occasional gaps... But I maintain that a far more accurate picture of the stratigraphical record is of one long gap with only very occasional sedimentation... The gaps predominate .. .. the lithologies are all diachronous and the fossils migrate into the area from ...
160. Assyria and the End of the Late Bronze Age [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 2 (Sep 1981) Home | Issue Contents Assyria and the End of the Late Bronze Age Martin Sieff What happened at the end of the Late Bronze Age? Why and how did the Hittite Empire fall? Stratigraphic evidence shows that the Hittite Empire, Ugarit, and the other Late Bronze Age centres of Palestine, Syria, Anatolia and Cyprus were destroyed at the same time. The Hittite archives from Boghazköi appear to describe defence preparations, as if an invasion was imminent, and then are silent. In Greece, too, archaeology has revealed widespread siege preparations at this time. What was happening? Dated at 1200 BC on the ...
