... very frequent occurrence of unusually large fireplaces with heating stones imbedded in charcoal (Larsson and Franzen, in press). The sediments deposited indicate severe ground frost in an initial phase, i.e. large balls of loose dune sand, imbedded in the lower part of the stratigraphies, objects which could only have been transported in a frozen form. In spite of being found in a 5 m thick sediment sequence the fire places have the same apparent age according to 14 C-datings, indicating an extreme rate of sedimentation. The playa investigated, ... If elaborate ring systems existed and degenerated in historic times- a highly speculative supposition-- they would form part of the panorama described in ancient records. Prof Lars G. Franzén, University of Göteborg Prof Thomas B. Larsson, University of Umea Landscape Analysis, Stratigraphical And Geochemical Investigations of Playa And Alluvial Fan Sediments In Tunisia And Raised Bog Deposits In Sweden: A Possible Correlation Between Extreme Climate Events And Cosmic Activity During The Late Holocene. Geomorphological signatures, and plays and alluvial fan deposits, all point at a severe flooding ...

The evidence includes: Sothic dating Radiocarbon dating Pottery dating Metallurgy as it is applies to pottery dating, as well as to carving and inscribed granite and diorite Egyptian and Mesopotamian stratigraphy are also analyzed along with the evidence of: erosion agronomy climatology agriculture glass technology domestication of the horse and ass linguistics forensic anthropology musical instrumentation of the hepatonic diatonic scale And much more! Published Mesopotanian stratigraphical research, based on geology and archaeology now indisputably prove 700 ... 800 years were added to history by the archaeologists. Linguistics related to Hebrew, Greek and Hittite along with agronomy, climatology, irrigation, burial customs and artifacts, domestication of the horse and ass and other topics all converge to indicate that history is much shorter than what historians claim has been established. For the first time in one work this evidence is presented to scientifically prove that ancient Near Eastern history must be shortened by over 1500 years. Those interested in the revision of history will have powerful tools to confront the historical establishment ...

Fudali, R.; "The Stratigraphic Age of Australites Revisited," Meteoritics, 28:114, 1993. Comment. Still puzzling is why so many Australasian tektites show up in recent sediments. One theory is that humans valued these glassy objects and did some anthropomorphic strewing. Dumbbell- and tear-shaped ... probably close to the missing crater mentioned above. Still unresolved is whether they were originally puddles of molten rock near the elusive crater or local ejecta analogous to volcanic bombs. (Ref. 1) Is the "age paradox" finally resolved? Some Australian geologists have stratigraphically dated the Australasian tektites as being just a few thousand rather than 770,000 years old. (SF#8) The 770,000-year figure is derived from the presence of Australasian microtekites at the Brunhes-Matuyama magnetic reversal and is, therefore, a "magnetostratigraphic ...

Actually, though, a larger issue is at stake. In the sediments around the engraved boulders, anthropologists have discovered what seem to be even-more-ancient signs of human activity: stone tools stratigraphically dated at 116,000 and 176,000 years. The problem here is that most anthropologists hold (rather fervently) that modern humans did not expand out of Africa until about 100,000 years ago. Paleoanthropologist R. Klein offered the following pertinent comment ...

If such a destructive process continued over a long period of time, it would have obliterated cold-water carbonate sediments f rorn the stratigraphic record. Pore-filling cements and crystals nucleating over partly dissolved crystals or grains are characteristic of constructive diagenetic fabrics that develop during periods of saturation by cold upwelling currents (Fig. 2). These cold currents maintain CaC03 on saturation level in cold seas (Wass et ...

... cities at the end of Middle Bronze II, and consequently I propose lowering the date for the end of MB II by a little over 100 years. Apart from this move (and the resultant shortening of Late Bronze I) there is no major tampering with Palestinian stratigraphy [in my current views. Conventional dates are adopted... or Late Bronze II and the entire Iron Age. 46 As far as Sebastiyeh is concerned, Bimson now accepts the Iron Age settlement as Omride Samaria, since this fits the overall Palestinian stratigraphy ... which he continued to uphold Heinsohn's stand without, however, attempting to defend his own effort. The brunt of his rebuttal consisted of the following: Dwardu Cardona offers lengthy criticisms of Professor Heinsohn's chronology, though the latter's reconstruction does appear to be in harmony with the stratigraphic facts. For all the length of his criticism, Cardona's effort is not persuasive in spite of his help from Professor Stiebing, because it essentially ignores this fundamental evidence. From what dependable sources did Cardona derive his historical evidence? And how independent is this " ...

... reign features all of these but there are bound to be parallels. At best, such parallels provide additional confirmation for identifications that have already been made on other grounds but the parallels themselves do not make the case. Heinsohn claims that he does have other grounds: stratigraphy. He claims that no adequate stratigraphical remains have been located for the Median-Persian period in Assyria. However stratigraphy is often deceptive- you cannot always trust what is said to have been found, or not found. The archaeological/stratigraphical product Heinsohn offers us has ... , in fact, to be identified with the Persian Empire [8. In this, Hammurabi would be the same as Darius the Great, Ammisaduqa would be the same as Artaxerxes III Ochos [9 and so on. Heinsohn based these conclusions mainly on archaeological and stratigraphical considerations, which I tend to see as of secondary import. My endorsement of Heinsohn's late dating of the First Babylonian Dynasty resulted from astronomical and calendrical considerations, which he tends to see as being of very limited import. My summary here may be too mild ...

... sides of this issue, Cardona has written an excellent review article.) 14 For a number of years, Ager has taught geology, mainly uniformitarian style, at the University College of Swansea in Wales. In 1973 he published a book on The Nature of the Stratigraphical Record. He discusses plate tectonics and other drift ideas, but he also gives some anti-drift arguments. He seems to indicate that some, although not all, formations might be explained by drift. However, he believes that the standard uniformitarian ideas about deposits are ... totally adequate and that some catastrophic ideas must be considered. Ager prefers to rely on earth-generated catastrophes, but for one of the great ancient anomalies in the stratigraphic record he says that there is no evident explanation" available in the drift concepts, and he expresses the opinion that at least in this case, "we must appeal to an extra-terrestrial cause'. So, although drift ideas may be interesting and useful, they do not explain everything, and they leave a number of problems still to be addressed. Continental-drift theories have ...

... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1992 No 1 (Aug 1992) Home¦ Issue Contents The Stratigraphy of Israel This is the text of my talk given at the November 1991 Nottingham meeting, adapted slightly for publication and with some parts removed where similar material is published in other SIS volumes. by R. M. Porter Introduction and Chronological Schemes One of the things I hope to do today is to show that the biblical Judges Period fits well with the archaeology of the Middle Bronze Age, thereby putting the Exodus back ... at some individual sites; Jerusalem, Jericho, Ai, Shechem, Shiloh, Samaria, and Megiddo. Most of these will support my contention that the Judges Period is set in Middle Bronze; but Samaria and Megiddo will relate particularly to the Iron Age and the stratigraphic position of the Assyrians. Jerusalem There has been a lot of excavation at sites in and around Jerusalem but it is all rather bitty and I have not yet got properly to grips with it. I will just describe one aspect that fits in well with the ...

... of the University of Glasgow organised a weekend conference on the theme of Ages in Chaos. Here we would like to discuss briefly the two main objections which Professor Stiebing raised against Velikovsky's reconstruction concerning (a) the evidence of Mesopotamian synchronisms, and (b) Palestinian stratigraphy. Stiebing raised the problem of the identity of the Mesopotamian el-Amarna correspondents- Assuruballit, Kadashman-Enlil, and Burnaburiash- who are usually dated to the 14th century B. C., whereas Velikovsky dates the archive to the mid-9th century B. C., when ... by Dr. Bimson and myself of your answer to Howard Denis in BAR December '76. Naturally, I feel impelled to answer the criticisms which you have returned. By way of introduction, I would like to stress my view that your articles in Pensée on the stratigraphical problems of Dr. Velikovsky's revised chronology form one of the most valuable contributions to the debate surrounding Ages in Chaos. They stated the problem, which all of Velikovsky's sympathisers should take very seriously, in a clear and cogent way. Dr. Bimson's paper on ...
