241. The Setting of the Stage [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... deciphered. But we are ahead of our story. References Don Marquis, quoting Pope. Of this shipwreck Schliemann wrote to his sisters in Hanover an exciting account of miraculous escape from death. In his later autobiography he exposes his letter-report as more fantasy than truth. In Troy and Its Remains (London, 1875) Schliemann distinguished four cities; in Ilios, The City and Country of the Trojans (London, 1880) he recognized seven. This is the view of C. F. A. Schaeffer, argued in his Stratigraphie comparée et chronologie de l ? Asie occidentale (IIIe et IIe millenaires) (Oxford University Press, 1948), p. 225. C. Blegen ascribed the destruction to a human foe. J. D. S. Pendlebury, Aegyptiaca (Cambridge, 1930), pp. 53-57. ...
242. Who Were the Neo-Assyrian Kings? [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1993 No 1 (Aug 1993) Home¦ Issue Contents Who Were the Neo-Assyrian Kings? by Emmet Sweeney (available from the author, 1 Marlborough Street, Londonderry BT48 9AU, N. Ireland, price £1 50 including postage (UK)) Sweeney takes as a starting point Gunnar Heinsohn's compressing of history in order to leave no gaps in the stratigraphy. Historically of course there can have been no gaps, but has Sweeney chosen the right kings? As the charts show, he has compared the lines of the best-known Sargonids and Achaemenids, and put them all between 700 and 330 BC. The parallels given in the chart are valid, but are they enough? Identifying a series of great names from ancient history with another requires more than a few or even several coincidences of story and events, however compelling these may be. To identify one king with another, every piece of information which applies to one must, by definition, apply to the other, or else it must be clearly shown to ...

... also Plato, The Statesman, 65. [The effects of nearby supernovae on the biosphere have been the object of intensive study be geologists in recent years, in the attempt to account for abrupt changes in the history of life on this planet. Cf. D. Russel and W. Tucker, ? Supernovae and the Extinction of the Dinosaurs,? Nature 229 (Feb. 19, 1971), pp. 553-554. Sudden extinctions were followed by the appearance of new species, quite different from those preceding them in the stratigraphic record. In a relatively brief interval whole genera were annihilated, giving way to new creatures of radically different aspect, having little in common with the forms they replaced. See N. D. Newell, ? Revolutions in the History of Life,? Geological Society of America Special Papers 89, pp. 68-91; Cf. S. J. Gould and N. Eldredge, ? Punctuated equilibria: the tempo and mode of evolution reconsidered,? Paleobiology 1977, Vol. III, pp. 115-151. Thus over the ...

... containing the Proceedings of the Glasgow conference; they are very well produced and have been the subject of much interest among my colleagues in the Department here. ARCHIE. ROY Professor of Astronomy University of Glasgow Thank you for arranging to have a copy of the Glasgow Proceedings mailed to me. I have enjoyed reading it very much. The conference seems to have been a stimulating one and a fairly balanced discussion of Velikovsky's historical theories. WILLIAM H. STIEBING, JR Associate Professor of History University of New Orleans Stiebing's critique of the revised stratigraphy discussed at the Glasgow Conference will appear in the next issue of SISR- Eds. \cdrom\pubs\journals\review\v070a\36letts.htm ...
245. The Identification of Troy [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... on the same side of the river, without any running springs, and enclosed within its walls an area of less than five acres.? (10) From the Iliad it transpires that the Achaeans could not effectively besiege Troy because of its great size the Trojans were able to receive aid from all the nations of Asia Minor until the very end of the war. Whether or not Troy has really been found, the mound of Hissarlik remains one of the most carefully excavated sites of Mycenaean times: and it is to the stratigraphic sequence that we shall now turn. References Strabo, Geography, Book XIII, ch. 1. Strabo draws chiefly on information supplied by Demetrios of Skepsis; cf. Schliemann ? s refutation of Strabo in Troy and Its Remains (London, 18750, pp. 41-42. Cf. also W. Leaf, Strabo on the Troad (London, 1923). For a recent geological survey of the site, see John C. Kraft, Ilhan Kayal, Oguz Erol, ? Geomorphic Reconstructions in the Environs of Ancient Troy ...
246. The Dark Age Spanned [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... The Dark Age Spanned Of all the excavated sites in Greece and the Aegean region, it was to Athens that the archaeologists pointed as the once place which preserved a continuity from the end of the Mycenean age down to classical times, and where a sequence of pottery spanning the Dark Age could be followed. Athens thus became the site by which the finds at all other excavated places were identified and placed in time. We are therefore bound to examine the actual stratigraphic situation at Athens. The sequence of pottery styles at Athens and thus in all the Greek lands is usually given thus? Middle Helladic to ca. -1550 Mycenean (Late Helladic) to ca. -1230 Submycenean to ca. -1050 Protogeometric to ca. -900 Geometric to ca. -680 It must immediately be said that neither in Athens nor at any other site in Greece has a stratified sequence such as this been uncovered. Then on what basis was the scheme built? There are three ways of determining the relative position of pottery in time; 1) Relationship of motifs: Determining the sequence ...

... cluster all the completely concealed water systems of Israel). Athens: Broneer, (1939), pp. 402-403, 427-428; Tiryns:For the late eighth-century date of the earliest post-LH III C material among the debris which the Tirynthians dumped into their twin tunnels at a later date (N. Verdelis, ? Anaskaphe Tirynthos,? Archalocrikon Deltion 18 [1963, p. 72 and 19 [1964, p. 110), see Rudolph, (1971), p. 93. Of greater significance, note the stratigraphy of the chamber adjoining the southern tunnel, filled by sediment washed down from higher up in the city, wherein one stratum contained both LH III C and late eighth/early seventh-century sherds (mostly the former). That layer which, by the standard chronology, should represent 500 years of deposition, is only slightly thicker than the one immediately beneath it, which represents at most, only a few decades, and is significantly thinner than the layer above it which did represent a few centuries (Rudolph, (1975) ...
248. Centuries of Darkness? - the reviewers reviewed [SIS C&C Review $]
... of James et al. and despite his skepticism he presents it as an attractive case. He even concedes: "The conventional scheme has not been proved wrong; what has been demonstrated, I think quite adequately, is the possibility of its being wrong." Since he is a leading authority on the Dark Ages of Greece, we await the evidence from his own specialty against the Centuries of Darkness thesis. It is a surprise, then, to find him presenting no evidence of his own: we hear nothing of Greek stratigraphy, ceramics, etc. James et al. have made 'a nice try' but they are 'unlucky' because the scientific evidence goes against them: radiocarbon dates indicate a chronology which, if anything, is older than that generally accepted. Writing in the review feature in Cambridge Archaeological Journal, Snodgrass does refer to two Greek 'problems' but again, and surprisingly, his main approach is to attack on the basis of radiocarbon dates. Snodgrass must surely be aware of the dangers of his line of argument. Whilst complaining that ...

Velikovsky has promised for the next issues of Pensee a series of chapters dealing with stratigraphic archaeology in various lands of the Ancient East, under the common title "Personal Tragedies in Archaeology." "Again and again conscientious excavators, misled by a fallacious chronological scheme, saw their names and careers brought into disrepute, because the result of their excavations, whether in Egypt, or Palestine, or Syria, or Cyprus, or Mesopotamia, or Anatolia, or Greece, or Crete, could not but result in a disaster that regularly became also personal." In one of the next issues we plan to publish ...
250. Society News (AGM 2000) [SIS C&C Review $]
... many people suffered from 'paradigm blindness', when they see only the one image and in their confrontations with those who can see the other image forget their notions of fair play. His interest in catastrophism had been rekindled by Alvarez's book about the death of the dinosaurs, in particular the observation that in addition to the Iridium layer there was a carbon layer, indicating that there had been a catastrophic fire storm It reminded Han of another carbon layer found across northern Europe. Ager had mentioned in his 1973 book The Nature of the Stratigraphic Record that along shores and steepsided valleys in southern England there was a clear carbon layer followed by a snail layer dating from the end of the last Ice Age. Although Ager had suggested that this could be taken as an indication of a universal conflagration, when Han tackled him about it, asking if there were other examples which had been explained away separately, Ager replied that he had only meant it as a joke. However, de Grazia had mentioned a similar layer in the Nile Valley and German excavations over 50 years ...
