201. Calibrated Radiocarbon and the 'Methodological Fault-Line' [SIS C&C Review $]
... . J. Kemp [3 and withdrew his proposals [4 and the exercise was not repeated. But the problem for pre-historians remains: in the third millennium BC and earlier the application of calibrated radiocarbon dates causes horrible problems for chronology. Thus F. Hole, writing in 1987, summarised the 8000-6000 BP period in Mesopotamia and complained of a subsequent 1000 year 'dark age' created by the application of calibrated radiocarbon dates: "In view of the prevailing lack of sites ascribed to this phase, not to mention the lack of stratigraphic evidence for a substantial gap time [sic, we can hardly be comfortable with the situation: a chronological "fault-line" on either side of which exist abundant sites, but across which the evidence is scarce to non-existent. While calibration of dates has resolved some problems, it has created this giant enigma. The possibilities are as follow [sic: 1) the calibration curve is wrong, 2) the date ascribed to written history is wrong, 3) archaeological stratification has been grossly misinterpreted, 4) the region was ...

203. Did the Achaemenids Ape the Assyrians? [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... We believe that, nearly a century after the extinction of Assyria, the Persians were digging up their cultural identity out of Assyrian rubbish. Yet even more bizarre is the Achaemenids' hesitancy to utilise their Assyrian culture in Assyria proper. According to conventional wisdom, the Persians took care to avoid the fertile heartland of their world empire. If all the non-Assyrian sources referring to a most active life in North Mesopotamia between -610 and -330 should contain a kernel of truth, modern Assyriologists cannot confirm it. From the view of the author's stratigraphical-historiographical approach, however, the Assyrian materials from inside Assyria and the Assyrianising materials from without belong to one and the same Persian Empire: all the Assyrian materials were found in the last pre-Hellenic strata group, which is continued without a gap in Hellenism.

204. Bookshelf [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... compares the New and Old worlds. The Lost Cities of Cibola by R. Petersen, 1985, $22 50 The author is a PhD physicist who has turned his attention to archaeology and geology and produced a book 'reminiscent of I. Donelly and I. Velikovsky in its catastrophic orientation'. He believes thriving cities in Nebraska were lost and anomalous geology created when a comet hit the area in 1680 AD. The New Catastrophism by D. Ager, 1993, $32 95 This is a sequel to The Nature of the Stratigraphic Record, already a classic among neocatastrophists. Written by an expert geologist, this book is described as 'vivid testimony that uniformitarianism is passé'. Jack Horsford recommends some 19th century books. Book of Beginnings by Gerald Massey (2 vols., London, 1881) This seeks to establish a link between ancient Egypt and Britain., looking at customs, vocabulary, names of persons, places and deities. Vol. 2 investigates links between Hebrew and Egyptian and pursues links between words and names to Greece, Mexico, various ...

... specific identifications. This is not assured, and building catastrophism theories on the basis of a single reductionist interpretation is precarious. It must be stressed, nevertheless, that while many myths are not "Recollections of a Fallen Sky," some of them may be just that. Stiebing continues with an evaluation of Velikovsky's restoration of ancient history. This section was augmented by Stiebing's recent article (Biblical Archaeology Review, II, 1985, 58ff.) dealing with this matter, as well as other "restorations" of ancient history and stratigraphy. His criticisms, as well as a number of my own, would be better as a separate work; see elsewhere in this issue. Dealing with the remainder of Stiebing's book I have only a few minor criticisms. First, referring to the function of Egyptian pyramids, Stiebing uncritically accepts them as tombs. To date, however, no completely unambiguous in situ pharaoh burials have yet been found in pyramids from the earliest periods. This, to be sure, we are told is due to grave robbers. The fact ...

209. Another Look at Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... its calibration, the fact remains that of 159 dates available for Egypt and Nubia, taken in the early 1970's from objects datable on historical grounds, a significant pattern was found to confirm the relative order of the chronological structures previously worked out. (For dates after 1971 based on the Irish-oak tree-ring calibration, see JNES, Vol. 44, 1985, 295ff.) This refers primarily to relative order: i.e. Old Kingdom objects date before Middle, New, and Late periods. This in turn very much supports the relative stratigraphy of Palestine where some of these period remains have been found. Similarly, by means of cross-synchronization Mesopotamian dates already determined by other means were also confirmed, at least in general. Thus, despite odd, unusual dates or comments by so-called radiocarbon "experts" in hallways after lectures, no clear and decisive reasons have been advanced to question the basic validity of radiocarbon dating. A new process, accelerator dating, involves substantially smaller specimens for measurement, but it will have to prove itself over a long period of time. ...
210. Old Tektites In Young Sediments? [Science Frontiers Website]
... young strata where they now reside. Not so, say Australian geologists, because most of these tektites are found in areas devoid of outcroppings 700,000 years old. Furthermore, the rather fragile tektites show little signs of wear, as they should if transported by flood waters for long distances. These and other geological facts militate against the 700,000-year date. Geologists have questioned the two dating techniques, while geophysicists think the geological evidence is shaky. (Chalmers, R.O., et al; "Australian Microtektites and the Stratigraphic Age of the Australites," Geological Society of America, Bulletin, 90:508, 1979.) Comment. It is important to resolve this issue because the dating methods employed are crucial to the now-dominant theory of plate tectonics. In particular, the 700,000-year figure seems to represent a major crisis in biological and geological history. Reference.
