231. Sun, Moon, and Sothis: A Study of Calendars and Calendar Reforms in Ancient Egypt by Lynn E. Rose [Aeon Journal $]
... . However, as of this moment in time, a new and comprehensive nomenclature has become eminently crucial in re-establishing a coherent and credible chronology, not only of Egypt but of the entire Middle East. And Rose has postulated some rational guidelines toward that end. To finally address Gardiner's lamentation over that little matter of the Middle East, we find enlightened folks like Hammurabi the Lawgiver less of a perspicacious First Dynasty Babylonian and more of a circumspect monarch of the later Persian Empire, with Rose graciously giving both credit and credence to the stratigraphic chronology reconstructed by Gunnar Heinsohn. In fact, we now see Hammurabi decked out in the vêtements and accoutrements of Darius the Great. This, in and of itself, should create quite a stir among the cognoscenti! [2 Three-quarters of Sun, Moon, and Sothis are spent in meticulously laying out the intricate groundwork in astronomical dating techniques. It is a laborious and thankless effort, which even the more determined reader-- including this reviewer-- may have some grave difficulty in following, what with the many unfamiliar ...

233. Clovis Police are Back in Action [Science Frontiers Website]
... all archeologists embrace these claims. For example, a recent issue of Discovering Archeology debunked them at great length and rather testily to boot. This broadside was followed by a devastating review of T.D. Dillehay's The Settlement of the Americas: A New Prehistory in the magazine Natural History. The reviewer for Natural History, A.C. Roosevelt, a respected anthropologist at the University of Illinois, targets the Cactus Hill site, in Virginia (SF#130). This dig, she says, is characterized by "inconsistent dates, vague stratigraphy, and inadequate artifact samples that disqualify them from scientific acceptance." Even Dillehay's monumental work at Monte Verde, Chile, does not survive the review unscathed. In fact, the claimed pre-Clovis sites, according to Roosevelt, do not yield sound, consistent radiocarbon dates earlier than 11,500 B.P. She will, however, entertain Bering Strait crossings as early as 12,000 B.P., but not a microsecond earlier. (Roosevelt, Anna Curtenius; "Who's on First?" Natural History, 109:76 ...

237. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... 4 Harley Avenue Princeton, N. J. December 4, 1952 Dear Professor Pfeiffer: Working very slow I have finished the reading of the galleys of the second volume of ? Ages in Chaos.? The galleys were in my hands for a very long time, and I have reworked the first chapter and added some sections; the work of Claude Schaeffer, ? Stratigraphie Comparée ? in which he comes on archaeological ground to the identical conclusion, as in my two books, of a natural catastrophe at the end of the Middle Kingdom, will be the subject of the final section. In the preface to the second volume, there will be some kind words of Etienne Drioton. I have not heard from you in response to my last letter a few weeks ago. Probably the letter did not have anything in it worth responding; and possibly you had no chance to answer it in your busy schedule. But being spoiled in the years past by your singular attention to your correspondents, I started to think: Was an administrative pressure put on ...

... the siege. 12 Thus Blegen became besieged by contradictions, derived from misinterpreting the Iliad and from following an erroneous chronology as well. To the confusion of the Furtwängler-Dörpfeld debate, 13 a misreading of the Iliad brought more confusion, and made the tragedy complete. References The Iliad, transl. by A. T. Murray (1925), Bk. XX.56-67. [For geological and archaeological evidence, see I. Velikovsky, Earth in Upheaval (New York, 1955). Cf. Claude F. A. Schaeffer, Stratigraphie Comparée (Cambridge, 1949). See also above, ?

239. I. Velikovsky: "The Dark Age of Greece" [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... task of my few words is to ask prominent scholars to reconsider their opinions about the dark age of Greece in the light of Velikovsky ? s present book. My personal difficulty is mainly caused by the fact that a short preface cannot be a scholarly treatise and therefore it is impossible to ask here all the questions which arise when Velikovsky ? s theory is applied to our special problem. And as I am not an archaeologist, but a Greek scholar, I am not able to control how far Velikovsky is right in questions of stratigraphy. Here I depend on his quotations of archaeological reports and it is not possible for me to decide how far his selection of passages from these reports is subjective. My difficulty is that now I have to accept the view that the period of Geometric style overlaps, at least partially, the Mycenaean and Minoan period. This is new for me, but I admit that it is not impossible that two different artistic approaches can exist at the same time. But the most important problem in connection with the present book is how ...
240. Seismology and Chronology [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... the same picture. He turned his attention to Persia, farther to the East --and the very same signs of catastrophes were evident in each and every excavated place. Then he turned his attention to the Caucasus and there, too, the similarity of the causes and effects was undeniable. In his own excavations on Cyprus he could once more establish the very same series of interventions by the frenzied elements of nature. He was so impressed by what he found that during the next few years he put into writing a voluminous work, Stratigraphie comparée et chronologie de l ? Asie occidentale (IIIe et IIe millennaires), published by Oxford University Press in 1948. In over six hundred pages supplemented by many tables, he presented his thesis. Several times during the third and second millennia before the present era the ancient East was disturbed by stupendous catastrophes; he also found evidence that in the fourth, as well as in the first millennium, the ancient East went through great natural paroxysms, but their description Schaeffer reserved for future publications. In the published work covering ...
