... and known as Kat, have archaeological remains dated Sothically much earlier and presented to us now as those of a previously unknown civilisation, the Hittites. If the hard evidence of stratigraphy is taken at face value then a welter of such 'new' cultures disappear and in their place are recognisable the remains of powerful empires whose apparent absence is such a puzzle. ... of one accord. Gunnar Heinsohn was especially pleased to have heard the other two and only wished he had had much of Chris Walker's information years ago. He fielded a few stratigraphical questions and then suggested that the constant repetition of a few names in the same sequence in the Assyrian king lists indicated that many could be discarded as mere repetitions. Chris Walker ... extent that the world empire of the Persians is considered elusive, the Medish superpower a phantom and the confusion which has reigned over attempts to identify the Ninos Assyrians has led to stratigraphic inversions. How were these pen and paper chronologies derived? A biblical chronology was openly retained by archaeologists until the late 19th century and biblical chronology was originally based on the belief ...

In Asia Minor also the urban centers (Tarse and Boghazkeui and Troy) suffered damage in the same period.

The city gate, the stratigraphical section near the gate, the source of the Grave Circles, the tombstones above and the contents within the royal Shaft ... Mycenaean period is soundly established, it follows that the Egyptian dates cannot be lowered. In my previous article in this journal the Mycenaean-Egyptian dependency was explained, and examples of 600-year stratigraphical, archaeological, and radiocarbon problems were mentioned for the Late Helladic site of Pylos (7). The same sort of problem exists at nearly every Mycenaean site, but since ... After all the digging by Schliemann, Dörpfeld, and Blegen at Hisarlik, only one sherd has turned up which could conceivably fall within the 400-year gap postulated for the site. Stratigraphically, however, it was not found where it should have been. A rim fragment from a "Proto geometric" cup was found "with sherds of Phase VIIbl, but ...

... just one example). However these points will no doubt be dealt with in the future editions of the work which will certainly be required. AGER'S NEO-CATASTROPHISM THE NATURE OF THE STRATIGRAPHICAL RECORD by D. V. Ager (Dent, 1973) JAN TERASMAE THIS REVIEW, ORIGINALLY WRITTEN FOR PENSÉE, WAS EXCLUDED FROM THE FIRST ISSUE OF "CATASTROPHIST GEOLOGY" ... , catastrophes in the latter sense are local or at most regional in their geographical impact. Events that are "sudden" in a geological sense and are used to define major stratigraphic boundaries are essentially global in extent. Another characteristic of geologically sudden events (mass extinctions of biota, glaciations, the presence of some very widespread deposits) is that they may ... minor groups besides at the end of the Mesozoic". Ager's discussion of the fragmentary nature of both the sedimentary and the fossil records confirms what has already been commonly accepted by stratigraphers and palaeontologists. We know that many gaps exist in the stratigraphical record, which are gradually being filled by new information. Under the chapter heading of "catastrophic uniformitarianism", ...

... that left Egypt prostrate and open to invasion. "In all sites examined till now in Western Asia, a hiatus or a period of extreme poverty caused a rupture of the stratigraphical and chronological sequence of the strata" (p. 564). "As to the nature of this third great upheaval-- registered in all the lands of Western Asia ... archaeological research, at his conclusions concerning the catastrophes, it could have been expected from Schaeffer that he would turn to historical sources to find a correlation of deductions made from the stratigraphic studies and mute finds. Having found that great paroxysms of nature ravaged the Ancient World, should he not have asked himself: Are there not in existence also references to such ... 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, published by Oxford University Press (in French) in 1948. On over six hundred pages supplemented by many tables, he presented this thesis. Several times during the ...

It is of interest that clear creeping tracks of trilobites are reported from the lowermost Lower Cambrian and even from probably Eocambrian strata situated stratigraphically far below the rocks bearing the first trilobite skeletons.
