31. Response to Bimson [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Contents Response to Bimson Emmet Sweeney At the Ages Still in Chaos' Conference 2002, John Bimson took me to task over a couple of issues relating to the archaeology and stratigraphy of the Near East. These points were expanded upon in a footnote added to the transcript of the discussion which occurred at the end of my talk. The general ... conveyed by John was that I, along presumably with Gunnar Heinsohn, was failing to take into account the archaeological and stratigraphical evidence. Yet, that is the precise opposite of the truth. In fact, as Gunnar and I have attempted to show over the past fifteen years, it is conventional scholarship, as well as those who – ...
32. The Stratigraphy of Bahrein: An Answer to Critics [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:6 (1988) Home | Issue Contents The Stratigraphy of Bahrein: An Answer to Critics Gunnar Heinsohn INTRODUCTION My study Die Sumerer gab es nicht (" The Sumerians did Not Exist)(1 ) was summarised by using the graphic below: TEXTBOOK ERAS FOR SOUTHERN MESOPOTAMIA Compressed to archaeologically existing and historically 1 ... start reading a book by going over the summary, I consider the chart partially reproduced above to be a likely source of my critics' belief that Bahrein gives them the stratigraphic sequence I ask for. In actual fact, they find the textbook chronology in the left column. This column, then, can hardly be used to refute my ...
33. Recent Developments In Near Eastern Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... published by P. Pfälzner in Mittanische und Mittelassyrische Keramik .. ., Berlin, 1995. He also summarised many other sites across northern Mesopotamia, briefly describing both their stratigraphy and pottery and linking them into his pottery classification scheme. This sometimes brought him into disagreement with other excavators, including David and Joan Oates who have excavated Tell Brak ... , small shortenings here and there and, in one case, parallel dynasties. For Mesopotamia an actual reversal of dynasties is required and there does not seem to be any stratigraphical or other evidence to prevent this. The reversal concerns the relationship between the Middle Assyrian (MA) and Mittanian periods. On OC the Mittanian period precedes the MA ...

... 1929, and the results appeared in large volumes. During World War II, "mainly between 1942 and 1945," as he wrote me, he worked on his Stratigraphie comparée, which was published by the Oxford University Press in 1948. It all started with his visit to Troy, where Professor Carl Blegen of Cincinnati University was digging ... the right direction and time will help to show the reality of global or near global catastrophes. Already continental or near continental catastrophes cannot be doubted as I showed in my stratigraphical work in the Near East. It will take time for your findings and mine to be acknowledged. This may make us sometimes impatient. But it will stir us ...
35. Chapter 8 Mesopotamia and Ghost Empires [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... and later also Emmet J. Sweeney, in a series of books and papers, based on the stratigraphical record, have challenged the existence of these new Mesopotamian empires. Stratigraphy, they claim, indicates quite clearly that the first five new empires noted above have no basis for their existence. They are, according to Heinsohn, duplications of ... be placed inside the earlier conventional framework. However, Professor Gunnar Heinsohn and later also Emmet J. Sweeney, in a series of books and papers, based on the stratigraphical record, have challenged the existence of these new Mesopotamian empires. Stratigraphy, they claim, indicates quite clearly that the first five new empires noted above have no basis ...
36. Distorting and Reconstructing the Past [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS "Ramessides, Medes and Persians" by Emmet J. Sweeney Ramessides, Medes, and Persians Sweeney 5 CHAPTER 1 DISTORTING AND RECONSTRUCTING THE PAST Stratigraphy and Chronology Since the scientific investigation of ancient times began, scholars have sought to make sense of the myriad kings, dynasties, and nations that the spade of the archaeologist and the ... Scriptures, which were our main source of information about them, seemed to be completely vindicated. It was therefore agreed that the Akkadians and Sumerians, both of whom came stratigraphically long before the Neo-Assyrians, were indeed races unknown to Classical antiquity. The discovery of these peoples was hailed as one of the great triumphs of modern scholarship. But ...
37. Epilogue: Questions And Answers (Ramses II and his Time) [Velikovsky]
... subsequently published works have not changed the problem as it stood in 1952, and as it is, it already exceeds in length the other questions discussed here. 6. Stratigraphy dominates all judgments of professional archaeologists. Literary monuments are considered of definitely secondary value and, when found in wrong stratigraphical positions, are considered to be intrusions. Pottery ... however, especially Mycenean and post-Mycenean (Geometric in various stages, and Orientalizing), defines by its presence the chronological placement of the strata. Scarabs, often carrying royal Egyptian names, are second only to pottery (usually sherds) as arbiters of age. What is then the verdict coming from pottery and scarabs in the court where conventional ...
38. Chapter 17 Corroboration, Convergence, Analysis [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , the early Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations were able to carve diorite, indicating that they did so in the first and not the second or third millennium B.C . Stratigraphy at Tell Munbaqa in Syria has been examined by a geologist. The geology incontestably shows that where the established historians placed a 700- to 800-year settlement gap between the ... In truth, virtually all of the respected authorities and critics look for ad hoc explanations and references, because no one could seriously believe that such dramatic scientific, technical, stratigraphical, etc. facts could dominate as evidence for the chronology of the ancient world with such a strong link to history. As Livio C. Stecchini wrote in Kronos ...
39. Finding the Limits of Chronological Revision [Journals] [SIS Review]
... objections at Glasgow, Peter James and I had independently concluded that the 18th, 19th and 20th Dynasties were not to be separated. Their continuity was clearly required by the stratigraphy of the sites Peter and I were studying in our different areas of expertise (the Hittite realm and Palestine respectively). In my Glasgow Conference paper I cited evidence ... 19th and 20th Dynasties. The publication of Peoples of the Sea in 1977 had clarified Velikovsky's overall scheme but a careful examination of the arguments revealed fatal weaknesses. Textual and stratigraphical evidence were both incompatible with his revision. Textual evidence against dividing the 18th, 19th & 20th Dynasties A wealth of textual evidence, from Egypt and beyond, shows ...
40. A Reply to Palmer's 'In Search of Alter Egos' [Journals] [SIS Review]
... before, my reconstruction (as also Heinsohn's) is not based on such a premise. It is, on the contrary, based on the much more powerful dictates of stratigraphy. The simple fact is that in Mesopotamia and elsewhere outside the Persian heartland, there are no substantial Persian remains (contrary to what Palmer has claimed; see my ... Persian period. Heinsohn and I have therefore not simply cherry-picked' alter egos from the historical periods of our choice. The alter egos are required by the logic of the stratigraphic evidence. As such, I feel we would be justified in asking for a response to the stratigraphy before continuing the debate at all. Still, Palmer's willingness to ...
