F. A. Schaeffer's Stratigraphie Comparee et Chronologie de l'Asie Occidentale, (London 1948) which, he writes, 'adds much to the Review paper by Gammon: "Bronze Age Destructions in the Near East", SIS Review IV:4, and some to the Mandelkehr paper in SIS Review V:3.' The reviewer is Ann Perkins of Yale University, who welcomes Schaeffer's work as a valuable contribution, describing it as a 'monumental book' and as a 'key book in any archaeological library'. In the light of this enthusiastic and open-minded ...

192. An Allerød Conflagration? [Catastrophism Geology $]
... conflagration was just the sort of funny idea one casts off as a humorous aside, but it is so preposterous a notion as to not need taking seriously. That does not mean conservative narrow-mindedness, it is the fine old scientific principle of "economy of hypothesis" or "Occam's razor". One goes for the simplest solution first rather than deliberately postulating something which requires a much more difficult mechanism. In this case a "universal conflagration" (if possible) would certainly not last long enough to leave any sort of recognizable stratigraphical record, whereas a few centuries or millennia of occasional heath or forest fires, during a particularly dry spell, would probably do so without requiring any special mechanism. Derek V. Ager Dept. of Geology and Oceanography, University College of Swansea, Swansea, U.K.*** After a forest fire the forest usually recovers, and the ashes are incorporated in the humus layer. But you speak of ".. a clear black horizon, only an inch or so thick", which is found interbedded with the ...

A full, illustrated report on the findings of the Society's 1984 Tour of Egypt, including transcripts of lectures by Michael Jones and Peter James.

... an excess of evaporation in the Gulf of Mexico". The dper part of the section revealed ..a temporary, drastic decrease in the abundance of Globorotalia Inflata. Although this could be due to a very short episode of high temperature, we are more inclined to assign it to a temporary non-linear behavior of the species in question. Examples of such behavior are known and will be discussed below". The core under study "has failed to reveal any evidence of sedimentary disturbance, including turbidite deposition." In The Nature of the Stratigraphical Record (Halsted Press, 1973), Ager relates the following on page 40: "Along the chalk downs in southern England there are a number of short, steepsided dry valleys traditionally blamed on the devil (for example, Devil's Dyke near Brighton). These have been gouged out of the hills, probably under periglacial conditions, and their debris spread on the lowlands below. From careful work on the snail faunas of the chalk sludge from one of these (the Devil's Kneading Trough in Kent) Or Michael Kerney showed ...

197. What has Happened to Worzel's Deep-Sea Ash? [Catastrophism Geology $]
... N to 12 o S, some hundreds of kilometers off the coasts of Central and South America. The layer is composed of very fine-grained (70-200 microns) unsorted shards of clear, colourless volcanic glass, with refractive index of 1.500. No crystalline minerals were detected. No regional trend in thickness was found. Because of this remarkable uniformity, both Worzel and Ewing e.a. were of the opinion that its extension was probably much greater, and quite possibly world-wide. The ash appeared to be similar, in composition and in. stratigraphic position, to an ash layer found in cores taken from the Gulf of Mexico, which had been tentatively correlated with the lower ash in Piggot's North Atlantic cores. Still another similar ash layer had been described from cores taken off the coasts of Peru and Chile, as far south as 25 o. Ewing concluded that "If this suggestive correlation can be proved, the total volume of ash must be so great and the mechanism of dispersal so effective that the possibility of world-wide coverage must be considered." Possible volcanic sources ...

... From: SIS Review Vol II No 3 (1977/78) "From Exodus to Akhnaton" Home¦ Issue Contents A Chart to Illustrate the Conquest of Canaan John Bimson Dr Bimson studied at the Department of Biblical Studies, Sheffield University, where he completed his doctorate thesis dealing with Hebrew chronology with special reference to the dating of the Exodus. He has contributed earlier articles to the S.I.S. Review in this area, and is currently continuing his research into the stratigraphy and chronology of ancient Palestine. It is now generally agreed among Biblical scholars that the Israelite Conquest of Canaan under Joshua took place towards the end of the Late Bronze Age, in the second half of the 13th century BC, and it is held that archaeological evidence supports this date. In a previous article (SISR I:3, pp. 2-7) Dr Bimson argued that the Conquest, in terms of the revised chronology, must be associated with the destructions of the Middle Bronze Age cities of Palestine. The accompanying table clearly shows this new placement to be preferable when the ...

... , entitled "The Bronze Ages in the Near East: a catastrophist interpretation", was given by historian Geoffrey Gammon, who dealt with the mainly archaeological evidence for widespread global catastrophes in the third and second millennia BC, without attempting to ascribe any specific cause to these events. The first major study of the evidence for widespread and possibly contemporaneous destructions during the Bronze Ages (between 3000 and 1200 BC in terms of the conventional chronology) had been undertaken by Professor Claude Schaeffer, the excavator of Ras-Shamra/Ugarit. Schaeffer's monumental Stratigraphie comparée..., published in 1948, established that Ugarit itself had been subject to repeated destructions by fire and earthquake. [A summary of Schaeffer's conclusions and a discussion of their implications appeared in an article by Geoffrey Gammon in SISR IV:4, pp. 104-108.Early Ugarit II had been destroyed by fire and partially abandoned, while the end of Early Ugarit III was marked by a further destruction and partial levelling of the city. The final Middle Bronze Age occupation (Middle Ugarit III) consisted largely of ...
